Floral Hello - Faux Shaker Card

If you aren't familiar with Studio Katia, let me just tell you, they have some fabulous products including a line of exclusive dies and beautiful sequins. I don't know about you, but anytime you mention sequins, I think shaker card! I love making them, but they can be a bit time consuming. With that in mind, I set out to create a faux shaker card using the Studio Katia Elongated Dotted Hexagon Creative Dies and a mix of their gorgeous sequins.

I began by die cutting the hexagon shape from the center of a piece of white cardstock cut to 4 x 5.25 inches. I then adhered a piece of acetate to the backside of this piece to cover the opening.  I then added double sided tape around the outside edge of the hexagon. This piece is now the window for my faux shaker card.

Next, I poured some sequins onto the center of a piece of white cardstock cut to 3.75 x 5 inches. I recommend smoothing them out so they are not piled too much on top of each other. I then removed the liner from the tape and positioned the window on top of the sequins to create my shaker card. Once the shaker was completed, I adhered it to a piece of green cardstock cut to 4.25 x 5.5 inches.

To embellish the card, I stamped, die cut and colored some flowers and leaves from the Newton's Nook Designs Lovely Blooms Stamp and Die Set. I colored all of the images using Prismacolor colored pencils and I blended them using a blending stump and Gamsol. 

After attaching all of the colored elements, I added my sentiment. I stamped the Hello from the Newton's Nook Designs Winston Takes Flight Stamp Set onto the a piece of white cardstock. I then cut it out using the smallest hexagon from the Studio Katia Elongated Dotted Hexagon Creative Dies.
