I have a shimmery gold shaker card to share with you today. I made it using some brandy-new Waltzingmouse Dies (Stitched Rectangles) and big sentiment stamp (Dream Bigger). This sentiment really takes front and center honors filling most of the card front! Perfect for a graduation card or for someone who needs encouragement for any reason.
I also used an older WMS stamp and die set - Fine Feathers. Die cutting the feather and embossing it in gold.
I added Vanilla Frost Shaker Mix - another new product from Waltzingmouse - it's a great mix of round and flower sequins, and tiny tiny clear beads!
Inside I gold embossed more stampings from Fine Feathers.
I took a few photo's of how I put the shaker piece together.
I cut the gold frame by nesting two of the Stitched Edge Dies. This gave me a frame and a panel left over to use on another project!
I cut a piece of clear acetate the size of the frame and put foam tape (the width of the frame) around all the edges of the acetate so the shaker mix can't fall out! I didn't remove the covering from the foam tape yet.
I poured a bit of the Shaker Mix onto the acetate (foam tape side up). Some people like to rub the inside edge of the foam tape with powder to take away the stickiness so the sequins etc. don't stick to the foam- but I like the way it holds some of the mix on the edges so it's not all pooling at the bottom.
I die cut a panel from white cardstock using the same size as the frame and gold embossed the sentiment stamp on it. I removed the covering from the foam tape on the acetate piece and laid the sentiment over the acetate (sentiment side down!) being careful to line up the edges ( foam tape is very sticky so you can't really adjust it after it's touched the cardstock)
I adhered the finished shaker piece to a white die cut panel, layering that over a brushed gold panel and finally to the white card base. I adhered the feather across the top of the frame. To finish off my card - I added a few sequins from the Shaker mix to the feather and frame.

Have a happy crafty weekend everyone!
