H2H - Slimline Shaker

Welcome to the second H2H challenge in the month of January!

The theme this week is slimline cards. 

I have created a few slimline cards and really like the longer size, whether it is used vertically or horizontally. I chose to create my card horizontally. 

I started by cutting a card front from white cardstock and I spread Moon Dust Glitter Gel on it. That had to dry overnight. In the meantime, I used four distress oxides inks and blended them together on another piece of white cardstock. I used a new slimline thin cut from CTMH to cut out the diagonal pattern. Once the glitter gel was dry, I separated sections of the die with foam tape and added sequins behind to create a shaker. The sentiment was masked and stamped in three coordinating colours. The flower was stamped, coloured and fussy cut. Parts of the flower were brushed with the Gold Shimmer Brush and I added a few loose sequins and some gold embellishing thread around the sentiment. 

Come and join us at Heart 2 Heart and show us your slimline card creations.
