How To Guide - Step 1

Having chosen a paper, from the Sunshine In My Pocket Textured Paper Pack, tear so it's slightly smaller than your card blank, then adhere straight on to the front. Scrunch and lift some of the torn paper edges. Keep the remaining paper.... 

How To Guide - Step 2

Pick a coordinating textured paper, tear and adhere on top of the first. Scrunch/lift the edges of the torn paper, to create a distressed effect. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Tear a panel from the paper leftover in step 1 and adhere across the bottom third of your card. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Choose a paper from the patterned Sunshine In My Pocket Paper Pack, trim a panel narrower than the first and adhere on top. Alternatively, you can tear it rather than cut it. 

Set your card to one side. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Choose another decorative paper from the same patterned paper pack and trim it to a few mm's smaller than the dimensions of the infinity, acetate shaker window (4.25 x 5.5"). 

Wipe over the paper with an anti-static bag. This helps to prevent the sequins and/or glitter, from clinging to the acetate. 

How To Guide - Step 6

Give all 4 sides of the clear, acetate window a good score, with your score tool and then remove the protective film from the front of the window. 

Place your decorative paper face down on the acetate window, peel the tape off THREE sides of the window and seal down on to the reverse of the paper. 

NB: The adhesive is very sticky so be careful when sealing each side....once it's stuck down it's stuck forever!!!

How To Guide - Step 7

You can now pour your sequins and/or chunky glitter, in the unsealed side of the pocket. Peel off the final piece of adhesive tape and seal.

Voila....a beautiful infinity shaker with no leaks!!!

How To Guide - Step 8

Adhere your infinity shaker to the front of your card. I like to use red liner tape when adhereing acetate to anything, but the choice is yours.

Set your card to one side. 

How To Guide - Step 9

Ink the "Family" Daisy stamp, from the Faith Collection, with the Midnight Hybrid ink pad and stamp on to white card. Use the coordinating die to cut it out. 

Colour in with your Gossip Alcohol markers, remembering to pop a sheet of copy paper underneath, as alcohol pens bleed through card and may damage your work surface. 

Tip: I wanted my Daisy to appear white, so I used a pale grey at the base and tip of the petals, to create the illusion of a white flower. You could also use a very pale blue or lilac, to achieve the same effect. 

How To Guide - Step 10

Adhere your 3D Daisy to the front right, of your infinity shaker card. I used wet glue with a little red liner tape on the flower head, to secure it firmly in place.  

How To Guide - Step 11

Finish off your card with an extra touch of sparkle, by using Stickles on the centre of your Daisy.
