Happy Tuesday y’all! It’s super hot in the Seattle area, thankfully we have AC and I can hide out in my craftroom, well not really as I have a huge baking project this week, so even more grateful for the AC! Anyhoo… this card is inspired by the BBQ we hosted when it wasn’t a million degrees, and hopefully it cools down again soon, so that we can use the deck again!
Masculine cards are the hardest card for this floral loving crafter to make, so when these fun BBQ themed sets came my way from Newton’s Nook Design I was finally inspired to step out of my comfort zone!
To create this fun shaker card, I started by stamping and coloring all the images (minus the apron!) from the Dad’s BBQ. Once colored I die cut them using the coordinating dies. Next I built the sentiment from the same stamp set by embossing them in white on to banners die cut from black card stock using the Banner Trio Die Set.
Next I created the back of shaker by stamping and embossing the BBQ Roundabout stamp in white. I inked blended over it with blue and green ink, and buffed it after to make sure the white pops! For the front of the card, I die cut a circle using the Circle Frames Die Set for a sheet of pattern paper from the Summertime Paper Pad trimmed down to an A2 card front size. I filled the shaker with white sequins and the little colored die cuts.
I finished off the card by adding the sentiment strips along with the bbq grill image and the flames on top of the shaker window.
