Shaker Card + Elizabeth Crafts Happy Birthday Die

Hi Shaz here!
Another tutorial - shaker cards using positive and negative of a word die -  happy birthday die! Two cards for the price of one!
The **Elizabeth crafts Happy Birthday word die, a stunning die, very easy to use positive and negative.  Also using ** Cottage Cutz Stitched ovals.
Step 1: Die cut out the centre of the shaker card with die cut of choice. On underside add the acetate for the shaker bits to go under. OPTIONAL: on top put a frame cut from same size oval and next one up and mount with double sided mounting tape, cut to size and pop it up on the outside. see below.
Step 2 Completed front layer of card, ready with acetate, frame + embossed front sheet.
Step 3: Add double sided tape to back of *inky glossy card piece for word die *(more details on it on my blog post).
Step 4:
After cutting out the word die add the sheet of photo paper to snippet of white card. Carefully lift off the positive of the word die to expose the intact negative of the die on lower layer.
I have cut another word die cut out of white craft foam (added double sided tape on the back of it also), for the happy birthday die.
Lay the positive layer on top of foam cut so it pops up nicely on the card.
Step 5: I decided I needed to match the colours of the die cut with the background for shaker, so really mixed media here! Some torn up tissue paper, glued on scrap of card, coloured with similar toned sprays.
Step 6: Here are all the shaker elements in the inside of the foam layer, it was die cut with inside size die and then adhered with tape and non tacky glue to the back. I say non-tacky cos tacky glue can stick to sequins etc.
Step 7. Add seal on back of shaker, I used some anti static powder on back of the acetate, before adding sequins etc. The seal on back of foam needs to be complete before turning it over.
Completed card 1, also used embossing folder by *Taylored Expressions called Snow fall, *available from Bec.- although not on site. I actually embossed it from both ends to extend the embossing.
Card 2: You probably can't see it but used *Spellbinder Pierced Rectangles die set to cut out the photo paper. Just used the pierced section to give a pierced edge.
Thanks so much for popping over for a peek and chat. You really are all appreciated I do hope this has been a help to you.
