Gumball Shaker Card with Gumball Machine Dies

 This is one of the fun cards we made at a recent card class which featured the Gumball Greetings Bundle. Because the class was virtually, I was not able to see card kits that featured stamped images, so we focused on the dies from the bundle.  The card below was finished to include some stamping.

The gumball machine is attached to a piece os Smoky Slate card stock that has been embossed using the Brick and Mortar 3D embossing folder.

The dome of the gumball machine is from the Gumball Shaker Domes package.  It is filled with approximately 1 tsp. of Frosted Beads.  The package of beers contains 900 beads, and — yes, I measured — you can get about 12 cards from one package if you use approximately 1 tsp.

The body of the gumball machine was made entirely by using all of the dies in the Gumball Machine die set.  There’s quite a few, but the smaller pieces really do add a lot of dimension and detail to the machine.

The front mechanism was die cut using Silver Foil.  The die embosses the piece as well.  The know was attached with a silver mini brad.

I glued a few of the Frosted Beads at the door of the machine to give the illusion of gumballs coming out of the machine.

The sentiment is from the Art Gallery stamp set and is stamped in Real Red.  It was mounted onto a tag die cut using the Stitched Rectangles set.  I added a small little bow to add some more texture.

The inside sentiment is from the Gumball Greetings set and is also stamped in Real Red.
