Spellbinders Amazing Paper Grace August 2020 Club Kit: Hey, Good Looking Shaker Card
Hello, Friends! It’s August 1st, and time to reveal my Spellbinders Amazing Paper Grace August 2020 Club Kit project. Every time I look at this Vintage Telephone Vignette Die, all I can think of is Ernestine, the telephone operator from the old Laugh-In comedy show: “One ringy dingy…” (OK…I’m showing my age here, but she was truly funny!)
I paired the club kit up with a favorite Authentique Paper Collection (Poised), Black Houndstooth Ribbon, and some gorgeous yellow roses from Little Birdie Crafts. Here’s how the card came together.
Is This the Number to Whom I am Speaking?
As I was playing around with the club kit, I realized it would make a super cute shaker base.
- First, die cut the body of the phone from a 6×6 panel of the Poised Tartan and heavy black cardstock. You will need 2 black panels and 1 plaid.
- Now die cut the receiver from the tartan and the black cardstock.
- Next, die cut the rotary dial from black cardstock and rose gold glitter paper.
- Then do the same for the trim pieces on the phone.
- Now set aside one black phone base. Layer the other pieces together so that the black layers are slightly offset from the patterned pieces. Use 1/8″ foam tape to add dimension.
- Adhere 3 layers of 1/8″ foam strips on the back side of the phone. Then fill the cavity with a shaker mix. (Linked below)
- Now remove the foam tape liner from the back of the phone and adhere the other black phone body to finish the shaker box.
Two Ringy Dingys
Does anyone else remember growing up with a telephone table in the house? There was always a pretty doily for the phone to rest on. Create a doily with the July Club Kit Die (Fanfare). Die cut it twice: once from patterned paper, and again from black. Layer together so that the black doily is slightly offset. This really makes the doily pop.
I opted to leave the numbers off the phone dial so that the shaker elements would show through. Then I added the sentiment banner beneath the phone.
A few vintage buttons from my stash, a little metal filigree corner, a couple of postage stamps, and the card front is finished.
A Peek Inside
The stopper for the easel base is actually a pocket. So naturally, I had to put something inside the pocket.
This simple 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2 note card can be used as a photo folio. The center oval is the dial piece cut out when making the phone. It’s the perfect size for that cute cardstock element.
A little pocket for a tea bag and honey stick has plenty of room for a gift card. Add your personal greeting on the opposite page.
