Hi everyone,

It’s Frances here today with another tutorial to share with you. I have been wanting to make a shaker card for a while, so I decided to create one using the new Heart Background die to make an anniversary card.

Here’s how I created my card:

1. Using the largest rectangle die from the Stitched Rectangles and the second largest rectangle die from the Fitted Rectangles die sets, position the smaller of the two dies inside the other so that they are evenly spaced. Hold the dies in place using masking tape or washi tape.

  • Use these two dies to create a frame from White Soft Finish Cardstock. 
  • Die cut 8 more frames using white card. (Note – you could die cut fun foam to create the shaker recess, however cardstock keeps its shape better than the fun foam.)

  • Using the largest rectangle die from the Stitched Rectangles die set. Die cut a piece of Dusky Lavender Soft Finish Cardstock. 
  • Using the largest rectangle die from the Stitched Rectangles die set. Die cut a piece of acetate.

2. Adhere one of the 8 white frames you created in step 1 to the Dusky Lavender Rectangle.

  • Continue adding the frames to each other until you have added all 8 frames. (You can add fewer or more frames depending on the height you need for your shaker recess.)

3. Add sequins and small beads to the shaker recess you created. Glue a few of the sequins randomly around the background area so that some of the shaker pieces can be seen when the card is standing upright.

4. Use the Heart Background die to cut a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock.

  • Using the White Soft Finish Cardstock frame we created in step 1, attach it to the front of the Heart Background.
  • Using the Acetate panel we created in step 1, adhere this to the back of the heart background.

  • Adhere the Heart Background piece to the shaker frames.

5. Cut a piece of Dark Fuchsia Soft Finish Cardstock that measures 6 1/4 inches x 10 inches. Score along the 10 inch side at 5 inches. Fold to create a side folding card that measures 5 inches x 6 1/4 inches.

  • Adhere the shaker piece to the folded Dark Fuchsia card.

6. Cut a piece of Dusky Lavender Soft Finish Cardstock that measures approximately 3 inches x 6 inches. Adhere Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape to the back. 

  • Die cut the A Way with Words – Happy Anniversary from this cardstock.
  • Cut a piece of Dark Fuchsia Soft Finish Cardstock that measures approximately 3 inches x 6 inches. Adhere Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape to the back. 
  • Die cut the A Way with Words – Happy Anniversary from this cardstock.
  • Layer the Dusky Lavender sentiment to the Dark Fuchsia sentiment so it is slightly offset.
  • Adhere sentiment to top of front of card.

7. Using the second largest rectangle die from the Stitched Rectangles die set, die cut one rectangle from White Soft Finish Cardstock.

  • Using the largest rectangle die from the Dotted Scallop Rectangles die set, die cut one rectangle from Dark Fuchsia Soft Finish Cardstock.
  • Adhere the white panel to the Dark Fuchsia panel.

8. Using the A Way with Words – Always, die cut the sentiment from Dark Fuchsia Soft Finish Cardstock that has Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape on the back. 

  • Adhere the sentiment to the top of the white panel.

9. Using the A Way with Words Calligraphic Elements 2 die set, die cut the heart from Dusky Lavender Soft Finish Cardstock that has Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape on the back.

  • Adhere heart to the lower right hand corner of card as per photo above.

Adhere inside panel piece to inside of card.

    Great tip to adhere a few sequins so you’ll always have some scattered throughout the card.
