MFT Sketch 654 - Otterly Great Birthday Card

 Hello Crafty Friends and welcome! My card today was created for the My Favorite Things Sketch 654 Challenge. For this card, I made a fun shaker card using the MFT - Otterly Love You stamp set. 

I started with an A2 sized card base using Hero Arts Nautical cardstock. I cut a rectangle out using MFT - A2 Double Stitched Rectangle STAX Dienamics

Then I cut a smaller square out of my double stitched rectangle using MFT - Inside & Out Stitched Square STAX. 

I then cut a square of vellum to use as my window for the shaker card and with double sided adhesive, attached it to the back of the rectangle. 

I then stamped the sentiment "Have an Otterly Great Birthday" on to the front of the rectangle. 

Setting that aside, I die cut another rectangle using the double stitched rectangle dies. I traced out the square area onto the second rectangle and then started stamping my images. 

I used some masking paper to create my scene with the otters. Then I used Distress Oxide ink for the sky and water. I sprayed water on the water area to make it look a little more realistic. 

I added foam tape to the back of the window panel, then added my gems to make my shaker card. I added my imaged background to the front rectangle and then pressed it well to make sure that all the foam tape adhered. 

I used double sided adhesive to add it to my card base. Then gave it a shake (just because!). Thank you so much for stopping by today and Happy Crafting!
