let's countdown to another amazing mft vault release!

Did you know that MFT Stamps is celebrating their sweet 16th birthday this month? And for their birthday they are giving us a second chance at some of their cutest birthday stamps & dies including the Wish die. You know I've never met a word die that I didn't want to turn into a shaker card, haha!

Here's my formula for creating a word shaker card...

  • die cut the word from a 110lbs cardstock panel and save any letter middles or in this case, the flame.
  • back with acetate to create the shaker window. I like to put double-sided tape on the edges of the acetate and glue pen around the die cut letters to make it very secure.
  • ink blend on the card front where the shaker window will be.
  • create "shaker container" around shaker window with foam tape.
  • fill shaker container with sequins & bits.
  • seal shaker window with another piece of acetate.
  • adhere shaker panel to card front.
To add a little extra dimension, I colored the flame die cut yellow and adhered it to the shaker window. Then I applied a nice thick coat of Glossy Accents and set it aside to dry.
And by the way, I decided to put the sentiment on the inside of the card. The Essential Birthday Messages are perfect for that!
