Rustic Sunflower Shaker Card

Heartfelt Creations Rustic Sunflower Shaker Card Elegant Pocket Accents by Kathy Clement PHoto 01

Sunflowers are blooming everywhere in North Carolina, so I felt inspired to dig out my Rustic Sunflower goodies to make this cheery shaker card.

  • First, trim a 6×6 card front to measure 5 1/2″ square. Stitch around the yellow border on the 6×6 card front.
  • Now, die cut the center image from a 6×6 card front in the Rustic Sunflower Paper Pad.  This is easy to do if you use the largest Basic Circles Die. Adhere the image to a 5 3/4″ panel of bright yellow cardstock so that it lines up with the opening in the frame.
  • Next, adhere clear cardstock to the back side to create the shaker window and place 3 layers of foam tape around the edges.
  • Place your shaker elements in the center of the die cut circle image. Remove the liner from the foam tape.  Now carefully center the frame over the image and press in place.
  • Use the Rustic Sunflower dies to cut flowers from the paper pad.  Brush with Wild Honey Distress Ink, spritz lightly with water and run through the shaping mold.
  • Now layer flowers together.  Fill the centers with hot glue and glass beads.
  • Die cut the Elegant Pocket Accent from cream cardstock,  Then die cut just the frame from turquoise paper.  Layer the accent piece over the turquoise base and adhere on the top of the card.
  • Arrange flowers, tags, and embellishments as seen in the photo.
A Peek Inside

I like to turn my cards into gifts by adding a pocket and some sweet tuck ins.

Here’s a little tea/gift card wallet and bookmark/tag to sweeten up the inside of this card.

There’s room to write a note inside, too.  Don’t forget to tuck in a honey stick to sweeten the tea!

    OH what a sweet, beautiful card, Kathy! Who doesn’t love sunflowers? They just make me smile and nothing says “Summer” like a big sunflower. The shaker window is spectacular with that lovely fancy arch. The beads as the centers are a fantastic idea and really dress the flowers up. Thank you for sharing this gorgeous card! Hugs!

    Sunflowers have never been my favorite but this card is changing my mind about that. Love the everything about this…the construction, colors, shaker, and inside special treat. Thanks so much for this post.

  5. Carol Snedden

    Love your beautiful card with all the summer colors. I just put my gallon of buttons out to give away and now I think I should keep them!

    So pretty. Teale is my favorite color. I never would have thought to mix it with sunflowers. A new project for me to play with.

  7. Martie Rollin

    Sunflowers and bees belong together! I like the different flower sizes and their dimension! Love that bee charm! The Pacific NW has finally flipped on the summer switch and we are going into several days of mid 90s!!


    Your shaker is so fun and beautiful. Love all of the little touches and accents. Thanks for sharing
