Hello Shaker

Good morning.  Birgit here with you today.  Want to shake things up a bit with your snail mail?  Try making a shaker card to say "hello".

Here's a snapshot of the dies I used:

Here's how I made it:
I started by cutting the Queen & Co. Lines Die 4 times out of 110# white cardstock and once out of 80# white cardstock.  I glued the 4 heavier weight die cut panels together and then used a fingernail file to remove all the tiny debris that sticks to the edges of dies.
This made the edges smooth.  Just look at that depth!  Attach the die cut panel to an A2 sized card base.

I adhered a Cheery Lynn Designs Clear Acetate Sheet to the back side of the 85# die cut panel using Score Tape.  This acetate has a protective blue film on both sides of the acetate so be sure to remove the blue film before adhering it to your project.
Fill each of the lines with seed beads and sequins and attach the top piece using Score Tape, removing the blue film first. 

Next cut the Memory Box Drifting Flowers Heart Die out of white cardstock.  While it's still in the die, turn it over and rub Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink into the crevices to add detail to the die.

Die cut a double layered sentiment and attach the sentiment to the halo.  The one I used isn't available in the store but there are many in the store to choose from, found HERE.

Assemble your card as shown.  

Add pretty gems to the centers of each of the flowers.
