Happy 2021 friends!
Today I’m sharing a super fun party hat shaker card using some basic dies and showing you how you can repurpose your dies into other elements you may not have thought of, so lets get into it!
Paper Rose Products used: Smooth White Cardstock, Really Rainbows Paper Pack, Really Rainbows Sentiment Sheets, Nesting Triangles Die set, Stitched Rectangles die set, Dandelions die set, Happy Birthday Small die set, Clear Glass Microbeads, Clear Crystal Mix, Candy Buffet Shaker Mix.
Other products used: foam tape, liquid glue, scrap of white cardstock, shimmer pen, 9cm square of acetate.
Technique: First I created my card base by scoring a piece of the white smooth cardstock in half and then burnished the folded edge and set aside. I then selected the green patterned paper from the Really Rainbows paper pack and die cut it using the second largest rectangle die, then the third largest triangle die. I then glued the acetate to the back of the patterned paper and then covered it in foam tape, being mindful of not getting too close to the window. I set that piece aside, brought back in my card base and used a mix of the shaker mix, microbeads and crystals to make a small pile where the window lines up with. Once happy with the position, I removed the foam tapes backing and attached my panel to the card and gave it a good shake to settle the shaker bits. I then used the white scrap of paper to die cut my sentiment pieces twice and the smaller dandelion head once to create the hat topper. I glued my sentiments together to give dimension, added them to the front of my card, added the dandelion head to the top of the hat and gave both a good going over with my shimmer pen. I then added the sentiment strip and a few more crystals to the front of the card to finish.
