Happy Birthday Shaker Card
Back in October 2018, Spellbinders released "Truckin' Through the Seasons" Large Die of the Month. The back end of a pickup truck included a "truckload" of embellishing options.
That die set was a smash success and Spellbinders brought it back by popular demand,with new accompanying dies for the charming truck. Spellbinders listened to Club members requests for add-on options and since then have added multiple enhancements and add-ons for "Truckin' Through the Seasons".
Today I created a shaker card to help introduce the next set of compatible dies which can be used alone or can accompany that beloved pick-up truck die.
I am obsessed with shaker cards and took the opportunity to create a sweet birthday shaker card. This next section is dedicated to showing you the products used to create the shaker card.
Every shaker needs shaker walls, a window and mix. I like to say that the mix is the magic.
Theshaker magic happens when great shaker mix is added. My great shaker mixis Buttons Galore /28 LilacLane's Blues Mix (Embellishment Bottle Mix) rattling around inside the card. It's a rich and robust collection of beads and sequins in varying sizes and shades of blue.
I used a classic"go-to" staple in my die collection, Spellbinders - Hemstitch Circles by Becca Feeken to create the shaker section, wall and acrylic window.
I find this die set is great for shaker cards because you can use the dies to cut the negative space for the actual shaker, the foam needed for the thick shaker walls and then the clear acrylic window.
Using the same die for all means consistency and accuracy - the window with fit the walls.
The paper used on this card is from an older classic BoBunny Double Dot 6x6 paper collection, Bold & Bright.
Thank you for stopping here today. Happy crafting.
