Super Easy Technique! Creating a Shaker Background Using Shape Dies

Hello friends. St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner. Here is a fun way to make a shaker card. I used the Lawn Fawn Lucky Clovers dies to create windows for this fun shaker card background. This card also uses NO stamping. I know some folks out there don’t like stamping. It’s just not there thing so using dies will eliminate stamping.

For this card, I cut a piece of Neenah 100lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to create a card base. And second piece cut to 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″ which I then die cut out windows using the Lawn Fawn Lucky Clovers dies. I backed the panel with Acetate cut to the same size and added 3M Foam Tape around all the clovers. I added gold sequins, Martha Stewart Yellow Iridiscent Star Glitter and Queen and Company Yellow Diamond Toppings and backed the panel with a piece of patter paper from Authentique 6 x 6 Emerald Paper (discontinued) cut to 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″.

I die cut the sentiment from Authentique 6 x 6 Emerald Paper (discontinued) and 2x from Simon Says Stamp Cardstock 100# 8-1/2 x 11″ Black Cardstock using Stampin’ Up! Word Wished Dies (retired) and stacked them to give the sentiment dimension.

I finished off the card by adding some gold sequins from my stash.

On the inside of the card, I added clovers die cut from Authentique 6 x 6 Emerald Paper (discontinued) using the Lawn Fawn Lucky Clovers dies.

St. Patrick’s Day Wreath

Happy Friday everyone. I don’t know about you but we are starting to get ready for spring in my house. And with Spring comes green…and lots of it. So let’s start it off by celebrating St. Patrick’s Day! My husband is Irish and so I like to put up decorations for the holiday. Since I don’t have one yet, I made a wreath for the front door. My neighbors must think I’m crazy about holidays or just plain crazy because I’ve had a different wreath and welcome mat for every holiday since we moved in last September. LOL
