Patriotic Mini-shaker Card (Kathy Berger)

Patriotic Mini-Shaker Card
by Kathy Berger

Today's card uses the three Americana Square Windows Mix 'n Match Precision Dies from Frantic Stamper in a fun new way: to create a shaker card!

To start this card, Kathy used a 5"x7" kraft card base and attached a layer of Bo Bunny Anthem - Country paper, and then a layer of Bo Bunny Anthem - Celebration paper, before finally attaching a panel cut from Bo Bunny Anthem - History paper to complete the card base, which she then set aside.

Kathy next aligned the three Americana squares dies on a piece of navy blue card-stock, cut them out, and trimmed around the cut holes to create a 1/4" border. She then cut a piece of acetate slightly smaller than the die-cut rectangle and affixed it behind the die-cut using Zig 2-way glue.

Next, Kathy used the 1.25" triple-size rectangle die from FranticStamper's Series 4 squares and rectangles dies set to cut a rectangular hole in a piece of craft foam, and then trimmed around that hole so that the pieces fit on the Americana squares rectangle. She used 1/8" strong tape to attach the foam to the die-cut pieces.

Kathy placed some tiny blue stars and chunky gold glitter on inside of the rectangle, and then added a backing piece of acetate, again using the strong tape. She then attached the finished mini shakers to her prepared card base.

Lastly, Kathy die cut the Frantic Stamper Precision Mix 'n Match America die out of craft foam and navy card-stock, and affixed them to the card front, layering the card-stock over the foam.

Here is a little detail of the shaker box:

Kathy hopes you enjoyed today's card!
