Memory Dex Card and Gorguss Shaker
I am sharing some of the latest embellishments I decided to make in a rosette style, as well as an adorable Shaker topped Card and Memory Dex card I made to go share with a fellow blogger and youtuber.
These little embellishments were easy and fun to make!
I began by uploading a designed I liked to my Cricut Explore Air 2, This allowed me to cut several ballerina shoes. I decided to make them in Gold mirror Cardstock and Vellum. This is always my preferred way to make delicate embellishments.
I also added leaves from a different die set, and topped the rosette with the die cuts, tulle, and several sequins. To make the shoes "pop" I embellished them with pink seed beads, sequins, and enamel.
It all got finished with little flowers and bows.
To make this set, I also used a Gorguss stamp, and a Tim Holtz die in the shape of an antique Clock. To make it a shaker, I filled it with sequins, and layered it with acetate, creating the perfect window effect. To cut the background, I cut the same shape using my Cricut and a scanned image of the same clock.
Here is how I packaged this lovely card set. It's a great way to share a little about yourself and your personal style.
I made a frilly embellishment by fussy cutting the sentiment image. I also added three little pearls for sparkle.
I love adding dimension to my cards, This one has it all! Leaves, washi, crochet lace, tulle, and even a hand-painted leaf I made using plaster.
Here is a close-up of the shaker with the perfect twinkle!
I hope that you have liked this post.
