Boba Slimline Shaker Twist & Turn Card

CBKMay8-1

Welcome to today’s post in which I used the new Mama Elephant Boba Tea stamp & die and the Boba Shaker Combo die.  I had a crazy vision to make shaker boba teas that also moved on the card.  Using the My Favorite Things Twist and Turn Interactive die set and Rachel Alverado’s tutorial here, I made a double twist and turn shaker slimline card.

First I ink blended distress oxide ink in spun sugar, tattered rose and antique linen on a slimline card base that had been cut with Trinity Stamps Slimline Card Series Scalloped Card Panel die set.  I cut another panel from vellum to give the front of the panel a softer feel.

To keep this post brief, I’ll say that I used Rachel’s tutorial to set up the inside of the card as shown in the photo below.  I doubled up on all the die cuts to make sure everything was sturdy, so I die cut the entire mechanism 4 times out of Neenah 110 lb solar white cardstock.  I also created an extra long pull tab to accommodate the slimline size.  It is important to set up the entire mechanism before adding any foam tape to the panel- you want to see where the pieces move so that the foam tape doesn’t impede the mechanism in any way.  You have to use a double layer of foam tape to accommodate the entire mechanism.

Next I stamped, die cut and copic colored the images from the Mama Elephant Boba Tea stamp & die.  For the shakers I die cut each tea shaker image 6 times (24 total), 1 acetate cover (4 total) and 1 complete tea cup outline (4 total) which I glued together with connect glue, the top most layer I colored with copics (R20, R00, Y21 and YR21) because I didn’t have the appropriate color cardstock.  To make it extra glittery, I put some Glitter Kiss glitter paste in Frosty Sparkle Kiss over the colored shaker pieces.  Once each shaker component was put together, I adhered it to the underlying mechanism with a strong adhesive foam dot.

I adhered the entire slimline panel to a card base of 8.5 inches by 3.5 inches.  When you pull the tab the cups move!
