Hello there. Take the time to show someone you're thinking of them by sending some inspiring snail mail. Here's a sweet shaker card using Linen cardstock, which is on sale all month long at CutCardstock.
Here's a snapshot of products I used:
I started by die cutting the Bright White Linen cardstock using the Say It With Florals Die and then stamping the flowers around the framed opening using the coordinating Say It With Florals stamp set. I wish you could see how wonderful the stamping looks on the textured linen. I love the look! Once I was done with the stamping, I adhered a piece of clear acetate to the back of the stamped frame using Score Tape.
I then cut 5 of the same dies out of the 160# White Cougar cardstock. This is the perfect cardstock for creating shaker cards because it is thick and sturdy. Because of it's thickness I had to run these through my machine twice but I got nice clean cuts each time.
I then layered the die cut panels together using Tomow Mono Liquid Glue. Just look at that depth!
I heat embossed the sentiment in black onto the Aqua Basis Cardstock.
I then assembled the shaker card, adding sequins to the inside window and adhered the layered panel, using Score Tape Double Sided Adhesive around the edges and more Tombow Mono Liquid Glue around the detailed areas of the die cut.
Some pearl gems were added to the centers of the two die cut flowers to finish this card off.
I hope you'll check out the products I used in today's post and take advantage of this month's sale on all Classic Crest and Linen Cardstock. Don't forget to add coordinating Basis Envelopes to your shopping cart!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Blessings~ Birgit
