Happy December 1, and happy DieCember® 2022!!!!
To celebrate dies as one of our favorite crafty products, Simon Says Stamp hosts a month-long celebration during the month of December! I am thrilled to be part of the kick-off with my shaker card featuring one of the new release dies called Fancy Birthday. There are so many varieties and styles of dies in this DieCember® release by Simon. Be sure to check it all out in their shop!
I made my shaker card by first using the Layered Confetti Stencil set and inking some Distress Oxides through the layers with ink blending brushes. I used Kitsch Flamingo, Wilted Violet, and Mermaid Lagoon.
Next I used the shadow layer of the Fancy Birthday die to cut the opening of the stenciled panel. I added adhesive on the back around the opening and adhered a piece of acetate for my shaker window. Then I trimmed the piece to 4" x 5-¼".
I added foam tape to the back of the panel edges and around the die cut opening to create a space for my shaker bling. I added some bling from my stash, then adhered another piece of acetate to the foam tape. This closes the window and makes it so much easier to then adhere the shaker panel to my A2 card base.
I die cut the birthday die three times from white cardstock and once from a scrap of cardstock I inked up with Kitsch Flamingo Oxide ink. I used glue to adhere the layers and then to the center of the shaker window. I used Honey Bee's Happy Birthday stamp set to stamp "happy" with Kitsch Flamingo Oxide.
