Hello, crafty friends! I hope you will enjoy today’s card as much as I enjoyed making it! Brutus Monroe has launched a new subscription club, the DIE OF THE MONTH CLUB. For June, the die is this beautiful Circles die that cuts this intricate design in a perfect A2 card size.
When I first saw this die, I knew I wanted to create a shaker with it! I cut the die out four times. I stacked and glued three of the cuts together, then cut out a square from the center to create a larger window that I could layer my patterned paper behind.
I cut the same square out of the fourth die layer, and adhered it to the bottom three after placing a layer of acetate between them. This created my window for my shaker!
I made my die cut from white cardstock, so the design could stand out, but also not pull attention away from the gorgeous paper I used underneath. This paper is part of the RUSTIC FLORALS paper pack. This paper pack has a number of floral designs in a variety of colors, all with a woodgrain design to it, as well. I cut down this piece of 6×6 paper so that the large blooms would peek through the die cut window.
I also wanted to frame the large square window and make it stand out a bit, so I cut a few thin strips of glitterstock, and then layered it around the square window.
Before adding the window to the patterned paper, I filled it with some shiny glitter pieces. I made sure to fill the large window and also all the little circles.
To finish my card, I used a sentiment from the LUCKY YOU stamp set and embossed it in ALABASTER EMBOSSING POWDER on a few thin strips of black cardstock. I added this sentiment over the large square window with some foam adhesive.
Thats it for today’s card! I hope you enjoyed stopping by today! Please continue hopping along with the team! Follow the list of links below!
