How to make a Fox shaker card by Alison Markham
Using Mixed Media Crumpled Stamp and Woodland Friends Fox illustrated by Tracey Hey
1. Cut a piece of white card to 5.5 inches square. Stamp the crumpled background stamp all over it, then die cut a 4.5 inch circle apperature.
2. Cut a piece of average to 5 inches square. Stamp the Fox image from the woodland friends stamp set centrally using an ink that is suitable for non-porous surfaces. I used Catherine Pooler midnight ink. Leave to dry fully.
3. Colour the image with alcohol markers. Leave to dry fully before moving on to the next step.
4. Stick the acetate to the reverse of the piece of card with the apperature using strong double sided tape.
5. Stick narrow strips of double sided foam tape around the edge of the card with the apperature.
Using a 6 inch square card blank, place a pile of small gems, beads or sequins. Carefully stick the apperature topper over the top of them. Shake gently to distibute them through out the apperature.
 6. Stamp a sentiment on the piece cut out when making the apperature. Due cut out.
7. Stamp, colour and first cut out three little birds from the woodland friends stamp set and stick to the card front.
