Hi friends! Happy Tuesday! Thanks for stopping by today! Please welcome back special guest Dana Joy to the blog today! She has made this gorgeous partial die cut star shaker card that provides a little extra and unexpected dazzle! Read on for more details and enjoy!
Hey everyone. It’s Dana Joy here with you today and I’m super excited to share a different twist on partial die cutting incorporated with a shaker card. This is a great way to have both techniques on one card. You get the great look for a shaker card that is hidden under your partial die cut piece.
I started by stamping Altenew Halftone Stars with versamark ink on 80lb Neenah solar white cardstock and heat embossed it with Simon Says Stamp rose gold embossing powder. Next I chose three of the stars and partially die cut them with the matching Halftone Stars nesting die cuts leaving the top of each star attached to the card panel. To add some interest to my card, I ran my card panel with a My Favorite Things stitched rectangle die through my machine again for a nice detail along the edges. At this point, I continued with making a standard shaker card adding an acetate sheet, some sequins and a backing. Now I used a bone folder to lightly curl my stars away from the acetate to you can see that it’s a shaker card and all the beautiful sequin is revealed.
To bring in a shiny sentiment, I pulled out my DCWV Metallic Glitter and Foil Washi Stack and adhered some rose gold washi paper to 80 lb Neenah solar white cardstock. Next, I die cut out the word believe using the Altenew Holiday Script Words die and glued it to the front of my card panel using multi matte medium. For some added bling, I place just a few rose gold sequins to finish off my card. I adhered my card panel to a white card base made from 110 lb Neenah solar white cardstock using Scor-Pal ½ scor tape.
This is such a fun and easy way to surprise your friends with just a peek of a shaker card. You can also use this for masculine cards and use confetti pieces instead of sequins. Thanks for hanging out with me today. We will see you back here soon with more creative inspiration.
