Birthday Gum Ball Card – Lori Whitlock


Have you ever ever seen a design that instantly made the artistic aspect of your mind begin sparking?  That occurred to me the minute I noticed Lori’s cute birthday gumball machine (SVG, Silhouette) and I assumed — shaker card! For some motive, the considered buttons flying round in the midst of this card simply made me completely satisfied!  So right here’s a fast tutorial on what I did … 


First, I lower out all the items as they have been in Lori’s file.  Then, I used the form instrument to create an oval.  I hovered the oval over the gumball machine to get the appropriate measurement, after which I did an offset of the oval to create a body.  


As soon as I had my body form, I lower it out 5 instances from white card inventory, and as soon as from the sunshine blue dot paper (Echo Park, First Responders, Emergency Automobiles paper).  The 5 layers of white card inventory ovals will give the body thickness and dimension in order that the buttons can transfer freely beneath.



I layered the 5 card inventory ovals, added small foam adhesive as proven, and traced the form onto a chunk of clear acetate.  Clearly, you don’t must be correct about this since you’re going to make use of scissors to chop contained in the strains to ensure that your acetate to take a seat inside the border of the oval body.  I used a skinny line of liquid glue to stick the acetate to the highest of my white oval body.

I adhered the sunshine blue dot oval over the acetate after which adhered all the pieces collectively.  I layered the folded white card base, then the plain white template positioned the buttons on the template, then added the oval over the template/buttons.  Lastly, I added the crimson high and backside items (additionally paper from the Echo Park First Responders assortment) with extra foam tape and completed the cardboard with the sentiment and remaining lower file items.  The stripe is only a piece of scrap lower to 1/4″ thick so as to add alongside the underside if desired.


Inside, the final touch was a cute little phrase that comes with the reducing file.


Thanks for stopping by Lori’s weblog immediately! I hope this card will encourage you to suppose outdoors the field and create one thing enjoyable with Lori’s fantastic reducing information!  Till subsequent time, completely satisfied crafting my associates!
