Rustic Sunflower Shaker Card
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!
