Thank You Shaker Card – Runway Inspired Challenge ric#71


ric71 thanks

The current Runway Inspired Challenge (ric#71) , is a tribute to iconic designer Oscar de la Renta, who recently passed away. Eight looks from his Spring 2015 show were provided as inspiration.

I chose this look:

The transparency of the dress immediately put VELLUM in my head. And the floral design reminded me of some washi tape that Offspring3 bought for my birthday last month.

I cut a frame of royal blue using Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangles, and mounted vellum to the back of the frame. I added the washi tape to the back of the vellum (to diffuse the color more). I put two “thank you” die cuts together (and trimmed off one layer of the “u” that would sit on the blue frame), and mounted on the front of the vellum. I wanted the frame to be raised, so I added foam tape to the back. Hmmm….how about some sequins behind that frame?? I couldn’t resist, although I am wondering if I will ever use a shaker thank you card! No worries, I will find a use for it.

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies: Paper – LCI Paper Royal, Papertrey Ink White, Stampin’ Up! Vellum, dies – Lawn Fawn (stitched rectangles), Papertrey Ink (thank you), washi tape – Recollections, sequins – Doodlebug Designs.

  1. A perfect choice of washi tape, and I love the shaker behind vellum idea, looks great! Thanks for strutting your stuff with us at Runway Inspired Challenge!

  2. An adorable card. I LOVE how you used vellum- it really mimics the translucent nature of the dress! Thanks so much for honoring Oscar de la Renta with us on the Runway!
