Today the Mama Elephant Design Team is showcasing the new Friend Indeed Stamp Set and coordinating Friend Die. I used the greeting stamps and die together with the mice from Tandem Ride for this whimsical shaker card.
The frame for the shaker was created by combining the stitched rectangles from the Peek A Frame Die Collection and Basic Die Collection. The "window" for the shaker was die cut from a Studio Calico Transparency and adhered to the back of the white frame. The clouds were cut from both white cardstock and vellum using the scallop Landscape Trio Border Die. The white border was adhered to the front of the frame and the vellum border to the backside of the frame. A pattered paper die cut rectangle was adhered to the white card base.
The word "friend" was die cut from Simon Says Stamp Slate Gray cardstock using the Friend Die and adhered to the front of the shaker. The greeting from the Friend Indeed Stamp Set was stamped above the die cut word on the transparency using StazOn white ink and below the die cut word using Hero Arts Ombre Gray to Black Ink.
The mice from the Tandem Ride stamp set were stamped on watercolor cardstock using Ranger Jet Black Archival Ink and colored in with the Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. The images were die cut with the coordinating Tandam Ride dies and adhered to the front of the shaker card.
Foam adhesive was used on the back of the shaker and then it was filled with Martha Stewart Confetti.
