My daughter just received a set of Crayola Fine Line markers as a gift. She very nicely let me use them to create this card set. I used a water brush to blend the color out and was very pleased with the results.
Two of the four cards
Two more cards
Size: Vertical side fold A2 card
Extra Details: I started with a full sheet of water color paper. I white heat embossed the Peep outlines all over the sheet. I used the Crayola Fine Line Markers to add a single line of color around all around the inside edges of each Peep. I used my water brush to add a very small amount of water and pull the color into the middle of each Peep. Once the Peeps were dry, I used a light blue marker to add color to the background. I added a line of color around the outside of each Peep and used my water brush to pull the color out.
White this sheet was drying; I realized that I hadn’t added a sentiment…. So I got a half sheet of water color paper and stamped the sentiment and some more Peeps. I used the same markers and technique to create the sentiments and the Peeps for the inside of the shakers.
When everything was dry, I began die cutting. I used two Cross Stitched Rectangle dies to cut the outer frame and the inner piece for each card. I used the same dies to cut some frames from fun foam to use in the construction of the shakers. I used the coordinating Peep die to cut out each of the extra Peeps. I fussy cut out each sentiment.
Next, I began construction my shaker cards. I adhered the inner rectangle directly to each white card base. I added the fun foam frame around the inner rectangle with strong doubled sided tape. Then, I adhered the clear plastic to the cardstock frame. I adhered the sentiment to the outside of the clear plastic. I added small piece of fun foam behind the sentiment. I added the die cute Peeps, some clear and white sequins to the well created by the fun foam frame. Then, I adhered the card stock frame to the fun foam frame. Lastly, I trimmed away any fun foam that was sticking out and the cards were done.
