Staggered Circle Die - Sunny Studio Stamps

Hello everyone!  Today I am sharing a project that features the new Staggered Circle Die from Sunny Studio Stamps.

I decided to go with an underwater-themed card and used the cutout circles as shaker windows.  To start, I first trimmed a piece of white card stock to 4.25" x 5.5" and then cut out the stitched windows with the Staggered Circle Die.  I then blended a separate piece of smooth white card stock with some Distress Inks (Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers, and Chipped Sapphire) to go behind my top panel.

I used images from both the Oceans of Joy and Magical Mermaids stamp sets and colored them with Copic Sketch Markers and used the Oceans of Joy and Magical Mermaids Die Sets to cut them out.  I adhered them to the ink blended panel after lining up the windows and deciding where I wanted to place them.

I then glued a piece of acetate over each of the windows (except for the top left one) and added some clear 3mm sequins and white seed beads for my embellishments.  I used some 3D Foam Adhesive Tape to give my shaker elements room to move.

I cut a piece of Velum Paper with one of the Wavy Border Dies and glued it within my top circle to make my dolphin look like he's popping out of the water.  Lastly, I heat embossed my sentiment with Fine Detail White Embossing Powder onto black card stock and added it to the front of my card.

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you all have a lovely weekend!
