VIDEO TUTORIAL: A2 Theater/Shaker Card

Hey all! Happy Friday! What a great way to end the week, start a new year by having a video tutorial! I am using La-La Land Crafts Rock On! Clear Stamp set for my Theater Fold Shaker card... wow! that is a lot of interaction for one card and it is so much fun!

This week the La-La Land Crafts design team has the challenge theme of Celebration or Birthday. I decided to go with Celebration for New Years. I made this one for my son who loves AC/DC I looked up a photo of the band so I could try and put little clothes on the hippos to really look like the band was on the stage of the theater card.  This photo shows the card closed...

and here is a photo of it open I just love it!

Isn't that fun!!!

Did I capture Angus Young's iconic red short pantsuit? I really wish I could have added his and Brian Johnson's riding caps as well. I didn't think about using oval dies until later though. Oh well, next time.

For Brian Johnson it was a little more difficult... I had to take the girl hippo which was the only one with a microphone... and try to make the ruffle on the shirt not look like one the best that I could. I know the shirt has a star on it... but hey I am working with a cute hippo set.. you do what you can do haha!

I absolutely LOVED putting clothes on all these little hippos. They are so cute in their little jeans. Can you see that shaker in the back? The star on the drummer's face is more KISS than AC/DC but... again workin' with what I got haha!

Now for the card that I made for my daughter. Her's is a little different more girl band with a bit of Jimmy Hendrix inspiration on the guitars. Here is the card closed...

and here is the card opened with all of them on stage. I used the little sax hippo on Meadow's card.

This was the first one that I did.. I actually colored the hippos during one of my Copic Academy classes and then finished the clothes and the instruments later. You may have already seen them on my Instagram account. I also made hers a shaker card as well with purple sequins instead of the red from Stephens.

Now you will find the video tutorial at the bottom of my post.
