Hello my dear crafters, I am so in love with the Small Die of the month kit from Spellbinders this month. It is a kit with 3 different sets of layering dies – circle set (with 3 dies), hexagon set (with 3 dies) and a petal shaped set (with 4 dies). I used the hexagon set for my card today to create a card with multiple shakers.
I started by using a rectangle panel of white cardstock which is slightly smaller than a standard A2 sized card. I positioned all the three hexagons, held them in place with washi tape and ran it through my Platinum die cutting machine, all at once. Next, I used the die cut panel with Inspire embossing folder to add pretty texture on it. I added acetate behind the die cut opening, built individual wells and added my shaker pieces – 2 sizes of blue shimmery sequins and matching seed beads. I stuck to one size of shaker bits in each well.
Here are some tips I have learnt for making shaker cards:
