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.

 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 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.
