Karate Orange Belt Shaker Card

Hello everyone! :o)

Today I want to share with you this CAS (clean and simple), Karate Orange Belt Shaker Card.

I made this card for my niece Tea (7), who trains Karate for four years. On June 7th 2018, she had her second Karate testing to earn an Orange Belt. She earned it!! :o) 

If you would like to find out more what the Karate Belt colors mean, check out this article.

Tea earned Orange Karate Belt

As I wanted to give her the card in person, I didn't hurry and created this card last week and gave it to her last weekend, while I was visiting my family in Bilice near Šibenik, where they are spending their vacation. She loved it!! :o)

If you like, you can see a card I made her last year here, when she earned a Yellow Belt. :o)

How I made this card...

To make this card I used a super cute Mama Elephant 'Tiny Ninjas' stamp set. LOVE!!! :o)

I stamped adorable ninja on a watercolor paper and watercolored her using Distress Inks. After drying, I fussy cut the ninja leaving white thin border around her. (As this was a card for a girl, my ninja is a girl.)

I used UNIKO 'Explosion! Additions' stamp set to create a window for my shaker card. I inked an explosion shape with VersaMark Ink and stamped it on a white cardstock paper panel. Using kraft knife, I cut out the shape and created the window. I glued an acetate sheet on the panel to close the window.

Then I blended a Distress Ink Spiced Marmalade directly on a white top folded card base. When I was satisfied with a color, I coated ink blended surface with Clear Wink of Stella.

I mixed various sequins and beads to get my own mix. I glued 3 mm thick foam sheet on the panel, filled the window with shaker mix and glued the panel on the card base. I also glued some foam on the ninja and glued her in the middle of the window (explosion shape).

Lastly, I heat embossed a sentiment in white on a black cardstock paper stripe and trimmed the stripe to get desirable size. I glued foam on the back and glued the sentiment on the card. To make the card sturdier, I glued a white cardstock paper panel inside the card and my card was finished. :o)
