Alpaca My Scarf Shaker Cards

I love the Lawn Fawn Winter Alpaca stamp set as the sentiment always makes me smile.

I went to a farm park with my nieces recently, and we saw some alpacas. I told them about the sentiment and it made them laugh too, so I thought I would make cards for them featuring the winter alpaca.

This card was quick to make so would work well for Christmas cards, perhaps with more traditional Christmas colours.

I used a rectangle peekaboo window from MFT to cut a window in a piece of card. I also used one of the MFT shaker pouches. I’m a huge fan of the shaker pouches as it makes it so easy to create an interactive card.

On a card base, I blended some ink and flicked with water for droplet details.

I added some Hero Arts Ombré purple sequins to the shaker pouch. This is a large pack with a really beautiful mix of iridescent sequins, that show different colours when they catch the light.

I attached the card panel with shaker to the card base to seal in the sequins.

For the sentiment, I used a stitched hillside die to cut down a piece of card. I added the sentiment, then attached the hill to the card with foam tape.

The alpaca is coloured with alcohol markers, and I added a patterned paper scarf. I used a mix of foam tape and double sided adhesive to add the alpaca to the card.

Here is the second card I made.

I used the MFT square peek a boo window and shaker pouch this time. The sequins are a mix from Lucy’s Cards, called Glacier.

I enjoyed making these cards. Those alpacas in their scarves are so cute!
