Tag Shaker Card

This card I made using the Tag dies from Ali Express. I used an a6 white card. First i matted the white base card with green card and then matted over that with a piece of patterned card. I cut the tag using 2 of the dies and i placed acetate over the back of the smaller tag. I then cut my double sided foam tape into thin strips and put it around the outside of the edge of the tag. I then used my anti static tool to go around the inside of the tag to prevent my shaker ellements sticking to the tape. I used a variety if sequins and small beads as my shaker ellements. Once the sequins were in i used the bigger tag cut at the beggining and placed this over the shaker bit to keep the shaker ellements inside. I then used a sentiment and embellishments from my stash to decorate the shaker tag. I put the shaker tag on to the card and my card was finished. You can watch my process video

 This lovely border die was from Ali express and was £1.62p. It cut lovely. To make the card i used a blank a6 card i made myself, I then matted the card with a blue pearlescent card stock leaving a small border.

I heat embossed a sentiment from a do crafts stamp set using wow silver embossing powder. I then cut out the sentiment using a die from a spellbinders nesting die set. I used foam tape to stick the sentiment to the middle of the card. I then used white flowers to decorate the bottom two corners of the card. I enjoyed making this card and was pleased with how it looked.
