Hello there! Today the Mama Elephant Design Team is showcasing the new Union Square Creative Cuts Dies! I paired these dies with an image from the Pix's Happy Holiday for a fun square shaker card. The Union Square Die Collection is awesome for creating layers for cards or tags (the tag and window shape are to die for (check out my tags and video next Tuesday)!!! Versatile die collections are some of my favorite and most used because you can use them for anything. Love that.
I started out my card by stamping an image from Pix's Happy Holiday on kraft cardstock using black ink and coloring in the image with Prismacolor Colored Pencils. I love how colored pencils look on kraft cardstock. Love. And those bunnies?!!! They are the cutest!
I die cut the bunny with one of the Union Square Creative Cuts dies and then stamped the falling snow image from the stamp set over the image with Yeti White Pigment Ink.
I die cut the frames from smooth white cardstock with the Union Square Creative Cuts and then trimmed down a top fold card base to 4 1/4" square. Using the frames as a guide, and holding them in place with my hand, I applied adhesive to the center of the card base and adhered the stamped and colored die cut.
I glued the two white frames together with a strong adhesive and then adhered them to the acetate. I applied two layers of foam tape all around the four sides and filled the shaker with Sparkling Clear and Marshmallow seed beads. I brought the card base to the shaker and adhered it.
I adhered a kraft frame to the outside border of the card for contrast and then finished the design with a scattering of Pretty Pink Posh sequins and confetti.
