Today I have a simple shaker card featuring lots of the new Lawn Fawn Dies that work with the wonderful Make Me Smile Dies! I paired the Make Me Smile Dies with the Shooting Star Dies, Puffy Clouds Dies, Stitched Rectangle Frames Dies, and Large Stitched Rectangle Dies for this fun design.
For the background of the card/shaker, I die cut an A2 sized rectangle from watercolor cardstock using a Large Stitched Rectangle Die. I applied Chipped Sapphire and Peacock Feathers Distress Inks to the background, spritzed the panel with water from a Distress Sprayer, let the water sit for 20-30 seconds and blotted it dry with a paper towel.
I die cut the star from watercolor cardstock and black cardstock using the Shooting Star Dies. I applied Mustard Seed and Fossilized Amber Distress Inks to the star, and Chipped Sapphire,Peacock Feathers, and Tumbled Glass Distress Inks to the rest of the die cut pieces. I spritzed the pieces with water from a Distress Sprayer, let the water sit for 20-30 seconds and blotted it dry with a paper towel.
I die cut a transparency using the A2 sized Large Stitched Rectangle Die and stamped a greeting and stars from the Lucky Stars Stamp Set using Cotton White StazOn Ink. I die cut a frame using a Stitched Rectangle Frames Die. I adhered the frame to the transparency and then assembled the die cut pieces to the front of the transparency. I flipped the framed transparency over and applied two layers of foam tape to the back and filled the shaker with Pretty Pink Posh Mini Silver Star Confetti, Silver Shimmer Seed Beads, and Sparkling Clear 4mm Sequins. I adhered the shaker backer to the front and adhered the completed shaker to a side fold card base.
