Wedding Cake Shaker Card

Hello Dies R Us friends! 
 Debbie with you today and I'm sharing a new card  for Dies R Us. 

This card is a fun card that features a fun die by Tutti Designs
called the Wedding Cake.

I'm learning to color again at my age which I won't tell you but it's
something I learned years ago but this is different.
Coloring isn't the same as I remember!!
For this Card I did some water coloring, believe me when I tell you it was very basic!

The back  panel is water color paper and I very simply took a wide brush and brushes several different colors on to the paper.  
If you don't know anything about water color, there are many videos out on you tube that will teach you the basics.

Next step is to die cut the cake from the center of a piece of white card stock.  You will be using the negative for this card.

On a piece of scrap velum stamp your sentiment and adhere it to the bottom of your die cut panel.
Add some clear acetate to the back of your die cut panel and then 
Adhere foam tape around the die cut.  

Add your sequins into the center of the foam tape and on the acetate.  
Add a coordinating panel cut slightly larger than your panel and adhere it to your die cut panel.  Adhere both to a card base.

Embellish as desired.

Giving cards is one of the most personal, thoughtful and encouraging 
things you can do for a friend or loved one.  All too often 
people send a text or use social media to send
 sentiments to people who sometimes could use a little more 
personal encouragement.

The smile on a friend or family members face is worth it!
