Here are some Shaker Cards I made with the August Paper Pumpkin from Stampin' Up! These monthly kits come complete with project instruction and all the supplies, excluding adhesive and scissors, to create awesome cards and 3-d items. All of the design, color, measuring and cutting has been done for you. The August kit included materials to make several small and large cards with die cut pieces, banner strips, envelopes, an adorable stamp set, a Hello Honey Ink cube and sequins, brads, linen thread and glue dots and dimensionals, too!
Each month a fully designed project kit arrives in a delightful box filled with stamps, ink, and paper—everything cut and ready to go so you can skip to the fun. Just think of it as creativity in a box. Paper Pumpkin subscriptions are $19.95/per month, however new subscribers can use the promotion code HALFOFF2 to receive the first two months for 1/2 off! But this 1/2 off offer is only until September 10th!
Here are the envelopes I made for these Shaker Cards. The fun colors and patterns came with the kit, including the circle die cuts, Silver Brads and Linen Thread.
To make the Shaker Cards, I simply adhered a piece of Window Sheet to the back of the 'Smile' die cut pieces. Then I added a foam edging around the entire word, or in the case of the smaller cards I added this edging around the die cut hearts and stars. I used the edge pieces of our Stampin' Dimensionals to create my foam edging as well as the Foam Shaker Rings. Then I put some tiny beads (the smaller cards) or gold and pink sequins (the larger cards) inside the foam edging, removed the backing and adhered the piece to the pre-printed card bases.
