Vellum Best Day Ever Full Front Flat Shaker Card | Tim Holtz Seasonal Sketch Dies

Thank you so much for joining me for this Vellum Best Day Ever Full Front Flat Shaker Card, Let's jump right in.

To start I created a background panel with some water-colour cardstock and 3 colours of distress sprays in Picked Raspberry, Salvaged Patina and Hocus Pocus. Drying between each layer until I was happy with how vibrant the panel turned out. I trimmed down a piece of Vellum to be 1/4 of an inch bigger on each side to create my pocket and scored the folds so it would be easier to work with and less chance of cracking.

I decided to use a sentiment out of the Bold text 1 die set and cut it out of Hammermill cardstock 3 times and once out of Champagne glitter cardstock to make the word ever stand out even more. I used my Bearly art glue to adhere the layers of letters on top of one another for some added dimension, I also brought in the Seasonal Sketch die for a focal and cut it out of Coloured metallic Kraft-stock for the base layer and the same Champagne Glitter cardstock for the detail layer and adhered the detail layer slightly to the left for added interest.

I adhered the sides of my vellum pocket to the vibrant panel with some 1/8th inch Scor-tape leaving one side open to add my shaker bits, I added some rock candy glitter, Mica flakes and Flat Gold Sequins and sealed up the last side on the pocket. I used 1 inch Scor-tape to adhere the pocket to my A2 base and adhered my elements on top with a mix of liquid glue and thin 3D foam squares. I couldn't resist adding a gem to the centre of my floral for some added shimmer and shine and called this card done.
