diy cover plate card with mft stamps

When I have new stamps & dies I love, I want to make as many cards with as many of my favorite techniques as possible! So with one of my favorite new die sets from MFT Stamps I created this DIY cover plate card!

The MFT November release is available now but before you run off to check it out, I got a card to share with you!
This card uses some of my favorite cardmaking making an easy DIY cover plate with a single die, creating a shaker card and uses a brayer to ink a background.

First I used my trusty centering ruler to divide my card panel.
The pencil lines served as a guide to die cut the smallest Stackable Snowflake.
After die cutting I added acetate to make it into a shaker window.

Then I adhered the little snowflake "diamonds" to the acetate. (And actually I forgot to save those when I first die cut the panel so I had to cut 6 more snowflakes to get them, LOL!)

On the front of my folded card I used a brayer and Distress Inks to ink up a background.
After that, a little foam tape and sequins turned it all into a shaker card with a embossed sentiment on the front (using the Pretty Poinsettias stamp set). Ta Da!
Make sure to pop over to the MFT blog to see more of the new release!

Thanks for stopping by!
