Hello My Crafty Friends:)
Last night while I was laying in bed, I was trying to find a fun new way to make a shaker card. I wanted to figure out something that I've never seen anyone do before....and after several minutes of sketching and contemplating.....this idea came to mind. Why not make a shaker card out of a large scripty die? I decided that this idea could really pan out. Simon Says Stamps has created such amazing large scripty dies lately...and I was sure I would find just the one I needed.
I decided I would try my idea out with Simon Says Stamps "Big Hello Craft Die". This particular die could work perfectly with all its loops and turns. I started by die cutting the sentiment out with 80lb Neenah solar white card stock 5 times as well as once with some white fun foam. Next, I added the fun foam and 3 layers of the sentiment I'd cut out, together using some Tombow Mono Multi glue. After they dried, I adhered the stack down onto a printed sheet of card stock that was already glued down to my 4.25 by 5.50 card base that was also made from 80lb Neenah Solar White. I then glued the two other hello sentiments together the same way, and then glued them on top of a piece of clear acetate I had laying around. I then cut the acetate off from around the outside of the hello sentiment, so it wouldn't be noticeable, except inside the largest loops. Before adhering the whole thing together, I filled each open area in the die with some tiny clear sequins, that I received from a previous Holiday card kit from Simon Says Stamp. The tiny size of these sequins worked perfectly inside this shaker card.
Then lastly...I added some silver twine from Lawn Fawn, a few more of the tiny sequins....and a sentiment from Inky Antics "Simple Sentiments" stamp set.
