Let's Shake

The challenge at Splitcoaststampers today is to make a shaker that is unusual. I love this die from Frantic Stamper and I thought it would make an unusual shaker card. To accomplish this I die cut my piece of cardstock for my top panel using the die. I was careful to keep all the pieces as they make the shaker. I then attached my acetate to the back of my card panel, then placed the completed die back in the cut out and applied glue in the bare spots. I glued in all the pieces, including my bright pink heart, then removed the word die. Bonus, another card! I then turned the panel over and applied my foam strips around my sentiment where necessary, as well as around the edges of the card panel. For the foam going around my word I powdered the inside edges so the sequins would not stick to it. I also added glue along the foam strips for added stick. I then applied my shimmer background paper, then applied it all to my card base. A few butterflies and floral sequins, along with some crystals completed my card. Thanks for visiting today.

Oh, Kia, what a gorgeous shaker card, and I love how you've used this word die! And what a great tip to add some power so the sequins don't stick! Genius idea! Big hugs, sweet friend!
