Authentique Rustic Shaker Card Tutorial
Hello, Friends! How about a little masculine card action? Today’s Authentique Rustic Shaker Card Tutorial will show you how to use Eileen Hull’s Frame Die to create a very handsome shaker card in a jiffy.
How to Build a Shaker Box using Eileen Hull’s Frame Die
This 5 1/4″ x 7 1/4″ top fold card celebrates the beauty of the outdoors in style! Here’s how I put the shaker box together using Eileen’s die:
- First, die cut the Mailable Frame Die from Rustic Seven.
- Next, carefully cut the “v” shaped flap away from the base. Set this aside to use in some other project.
- Now, cut along the scored crease line in the die to create two separate pieces: a plaid window piece, and a collaged piece.
- Next, stitch burlap ribbon around the perimeter of the window, if desired.
- Then, cut a piece of clear acrylic cardstock the same size as the window piece and glue to the BACK side of the plaid paper.
- Now create an elevation for your shaker card using foam tape, or sections of waste chipboard. I used 3 layers of 1/4″ wide matboard glued together to create my elevation. If you use foam tape, you will want to use at least 2 layers to give the shaker elements room to move around.
- When the elevation is adhered to the back side of the plaid paper, fill it with your shaker elements.
- If using foam tape, remove the liner and adhere the word collage panel to the back of the shaker box. If using waste chipboard, you will need to place adhesive on the edges of the word collage paper before adhering.
- Finally, hot glue wooden buttons in the corners of the shaker box where the burlap intersects.
- Then adhere the shaker box to the bottom card layers.
