Under the Sea Flat Shaker Peek-a-boo Card with Studio Katia

Updated: Jun 3, 2023

Hello, fellow card makers! I have a sweet peek-a-boo slimline that is also a flat shaker. Summer is approaching and, I don't know about you, but I associate the warm weather with water. This ocean inspired card features an adorable stamp set, Under the Sea, and the fabulous Sea Shell Shaker Die. A match made in heaven!

  • Canson XL Water Colour Paper was cut with a die from Dotted slimline Set 2 .

  • The panel was spritzed well with water and green, blue and gold pigment powders from Lindy's Magicals Mermaid Seashells were applied.

  • The Sea Shell Shaker Die was die cut three times on the water coloured panel lined up to the front of the card base. The die was cut through both layers at the same time.

  • To evenly space the die cut openings, the top and bottom shells were cut first. The die was centred in between the two for the middle die cut. This die will produce an outline and a shell detail.

  • The outline die cuts from the water colour shells were lined up through the die cut openings on the card base and adhered. The outlines are now on the inside of the card.

  • The shells on the inside of the card were stencilled with Brush Stroke Waves Stencil using Distress Oxide Inks Peeled Paint and Salty Ocean.

  • Acetate measuring 3 1/4" by 8 1/4" was mounted to the front of the card base ensuring the liquid adhesive was applied not only around the perimeter but also around each shell.

  • When the adhesive was dry, double sided tape was placed on top of the acetate sheet around both the perimeter and around each shell. The backing paper was removed.

  • A combination of Sparkling Sea Confetti and Rainbow Dust was spooned onto the centre of each shell and flattened into one layer.

  • A second sheet of acetate the same size as the first was laid on top and pressed along the double sided tape to get good adhesion.

  • The shell die cut openings on the water colour panel were aligned to those on the card base and adhered with liquid adhesive.

  • The shell detail die cut was dotted with Tombow glue and left to dry until it was in its tacky state. They were adhered on top of the acetate window.

  • Images from Under the Sea stamp set were stamped with Copic friendly, Memento ink, and coloured simply with YR18, 14, 20, BG 69, 66, 63 and 60. The images were fussy cut and adhered to the inside of the card.

  • The sentiment and fish were stamped on water colour paper coloured with the pigment powders.
