Dragon Flyby Birthday Greetings

Hello all,

As I was watching some card making videos for inspiration and to learn new techniques, I came across K Werner Design where she was showing how to make a suspended shaker card. She said she got her idea from Jennifer McGuire. I have put cut out into a shaker and have had no problem with the object turning but I like this idea because it could really make the cut-out fly.

Since I received MFT’s Magical Dragons, I can’t stop using them. They are whimsical and lend to all types of cards.  I also love shaker cards so I thought to give this a try. I was working on a rainbow card (separate) but decided to use it in this one.

I like the white on white with a shot of color in the middle. It makes the card pop but since just white on the base card tends to be too blah I went ahead and embossed it using a Sizzix birthday embossing folder that I have had since who can remember.


The dragon moves as if flying..



The background clouds were make using distress ink and a template cut from Fawn Lawn’s cloud border. The rainbow was cut from Simon Says Sentimental Circles. The dragon and rainbow are colored in Copic pens. The shaker bits are items found in the local sewing and Chinese shops here in Italy.  I found that the small pearls and crystals that are used in nail art are perfect for shakers. They are cheaper than I can get them online at card making supply stores.


My puppy Ruffles and his dragon friend.



I am submitting this card to the following challenges:

Ciao a tutti,

Mentre stavo visionando alcuni video You Tube su card making per cercare l’ispirazione e di apprendere nuove tecniche, ho trovato il video di  K Werner design. Mostrava come fare un biglietto shaker a sospensione. Ha indicato che ha avuto la sua idea da Jennifer McGuire.

Siccome, adoro i timbri di MFT Magical Dragons, volevo usarli di nuovi.

Mi piace il bianco su bianco con un colpo di colore in mezzo. Dal momento che solo bianco in  base tende ad essere troppo bleh ho fatto l’embossing da una cartella vecchia di Sizzix.

Lo sfondo di nuvole erano rese con inchiostro Distress e un tmplate fatto dalle fustelle Cloud Border di Fawn Lawn. L’arcobaleno è stato tagliato da Simon Says Sentimental Circles. Il drago e arcobaleno sono colorati con i Copic. I bit shaker sono oggetti trovati nelle mercerie e nei negozi cinesi qui in Italia. Ho trovato che le piccole perle e cristalli che vengono utilizzati in nail art sono perfetti per i shaker e costono molto di meno.

Spero che vi piace!
