Shaker Card with Floral Frame

I decided to combine a frame made with the new Mixed Impressions Texture stamps from Claritystamp with some die cutting to make a shaker card.
Trim a piece of Clarity stencil card to 6.5” x 6.5”. Add the simple square mask into the centre.
Using the two smallest floral nature mixed impression stamps, add stamping in Peeled Paint Oxide.
Go over each stamp with Evergreen Bough Oxide slightly offset.
Ink up the stamps and press down onto the page without using an acrylic block, applying pressure gently over the backs of the stamps to ensure an even print. Continue until the frame is complete.
Add random additional stamping in Forest Moss Oxide, this time only using part of each stamp each time.
Remove the mask. Cut away the centre, following the lines of the masked area.
Peel the protective covers off a piece of the small acetate. Glue it behind the aperture.
Cut a piece of black card to 6.75” x 6.75”. Use the Make a Wish Aperture die to cut out the centre. Add to the front of a 7” x 7” white card blank.
Add double sided foam tape on the back of the frame ensuring no gaps are left and run an anti-static pad round the inside.
Add star confetti to the centre of the card front.
Remove the backing off the foam tape and add the frame to the front of the card to finish ensuring all the confetti is trapped within the centre.

Great idea for a card, my list of things to try is growing longer. My aim is to tidy my craft room after Christmas & make room for me to play.
