Today we are taking another look at the wonderful Our Daily Bread designs February Release! The wildflowers are perfect for so many different cards. For my card today, I went with a shaker card. I love the way they look, but they always end up being more trouble than they’re worth, lol. Or maybe that’s just me.
I wanted to keep it semi flat, so I used sequins instead of buttons or something thicker. To begin, I die cut the canning jar in my top layer. Now here, I’ll tell you, the die has two aligning dots so I did a tiny bit of surgery & removed the lower one to keep from cutting a hole below it. I stopped the die cutting machine before I reached the top “dot” & just for insurance, I added a small piece of thick cardstock under it so it wouldn’t cut a hole on top. I stamped the top part of the wildflowers (from Life is a Gift) and colored them. On the bottom white layer, I stamped the canning jar & added some stems so it would appear they continue inside the jar.
I added a piece of acetate under the top layer and two layers of card board, then the bottom layer. Before I glued the bottom layer on, I added the sequins. The twine was glued on top along with the greeting on a die cut tag.I used the largest die from Flourished Star Pattern dies to cut the largest white layer because I love the way it pierces all around the edge.
Since I didn’t use any dp, I did some two color stamping on the inside around the edges. I used the lavender ink with the silhouette wildflowers & the grape with the wildflowers from the Life is a Gift set.
