Hello crafty friends! I'm Lien and this week I'm sharing a fun edge to edge shaker with a bold ombre sentiment and some custom die cut shaker pieces. As always, I will leave a video linked below so you can watch the entire process as well!

For this card I started out by doing some ink smooshing with Distress Oxide inks onto scrap pieces of Canson Montval 300 gsm watercolor cardstock. I love Oxide inks for this because they layer beautifully and create really intricate ink smooshed pieces. I made some in pinks (with Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry and Seedless Preserves) and some in oranges (with Dried Marigold and Carved Pumpkin). I then die cut a ton of the individual flower dies that come with the Hello Daisy Cover Panel Confetti Cuts. These will be my shaker bits!

For my big and bold sentiment I used the Hello die from that same die set and cut the shadow layer four times out of thick white cardstock and once from a gold holographic cardstock. For the scripty layer on top I cut it once from a teal cardstock and four times out of thick white cardstock. I wanted to add a little extra interest to that sentiment so I made it ombre with some ink blending! I added Peacock Feathers and Chipped Sapphire on the bottom of the die cut with blending brushes. I layered all those dies together and that holographic gold shadow will add just a touch of amazing shine without being too overpowering. I add some of the daisies on top of the sentiment as well. To add interest to my background I dry embossed the All Lined Up Cover Panel Confetti Cuts onto an A2 sized piece of white cardstock to add embossed stripes.

The way to assemble this shaker is super easy, take some flimsy acetate (any packaging from stamp sets or something similar will work perfectly!) and just fold it around that white embossed background. I add double sided adhesive to the long sides of the panel, fold over the acetate and seal those sides first. I then add double sided adhesive to both the short sides, seal one of them and leave one open to fill the shaker. I add in all my die cuts (making sure the pretty side is facing up) and some chunky pink glitter and silver glitter as well. I adhere that onto a cardbase with more double sided adhesive and then adhere my sentiment right on top with glossy accents. As a finishing touch I added some silver gems into the centers of the daisies and that's it!
