Window to a shaker!

Welcome everyone - hope you're having a lovely day!!

I'm the featured designer at Die Cut Divas today. We're showcasing Poppystamps products - love them and I have a fair few! I chose the new Fern and Daisy Pop-up Easel set on a recent online shopping spree. I adore Poppystamps pop-up easel die sets and couldn't resist this one. Rather than make a pop-up card, though, I made a shaker!

Supplies: Paper - Ms Sparkle A2 card; Neenah white;
Paper Studio orange and glitter; Lawn Fawn plaid; 
vellum & acetate
Spectacular Birthday (sadly retired)
Other - Darice sequins; Martha Stewart glitter; Honey Bee gems

I used the frame and leafy layer to cut white panels, die cut an oval window through both and adhered them together. I backed the panel with acetate, added foam tape for a channel & filled with glitter & sequins. I popped it onto a panel of patterned paper that Poppystamps gifted to me with my order - thanks!! Next I cut the sentiment (glitter paper with a vellum mat) and adhered it over the window. Then I cut a bunch of butterflies using more dies from the set - this set is loaded with great pieces!! Adhered to the card with some gems - done!

Thanks for visiting and I hope you'll join us at Die Cut Divas with your window card - go HERE to link to the gallery by April 30th at 9pm Pacific time.

I love orange, and so many card makers don't use it at all, so I love this card!

Great shaker, Linda! I never think to back a shaker with patterned paper--gotta remember that!
