Today’s card includes several new products from my “Top 10″ list from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog. Featured is the Bottled Happiness Bundle, which I’ve shown previously, paired with a new, Fabulous Frames Die. The frame was cut from Blushing Bride Cardstock, backed with Vellum Layering Designs, 3 1/2″ X 4 3/4″, and glued to a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4”. The detailing on the frame makes it extra special.
Next, I stamped the sentiment “Sending Cheer,” from the Bottled Happiness Stamp Set, in Memento Black Ink on Basic White Cardstock. Then, I used the 1″ square, Stylish Shapes Die for cutting, and glued it in the corner. The bow was cut from foil, using a Sentiment Silhouettes Die for cutting. This set, known for its word dies, has small dies that can be overlooked, so check them out in my Product List below.
While using the foil, I cut a “squiggle” from the Bushed Shapes Die Set. Then, I cut it in half, so it would fill the width of the frame, and glued it in place.
And, now for the bottle! This is an easy way to fill the bottle to make a shaker card. First, punch the bottle in the middle of cardstock, a bit larger than the Stitched Rectangles Die you want to use. I used 2 1/2″ X 3 1/2″ cardstock, and then the 1 3/4″ X 3 1/8″ Stitched Rectangles Die. Second, place the Vintage Bottle Shaker Dome on your table, rounded side up, remove the tape, and place your bottle punched cardstock on top. Third, turn it over, and fill with sequins. Fourth, use a Stitched Rectangles Die to cut cardstock, identical in size, remove the tape, and place to cover the bottle with sequins, being careful to match the edges. You can now glue it to your card front, or raise it on Dimensionals, as I did for this card.
One more photo, so you can see the pretty sequins. $15.00 may seem a lot to pay for sequins, but they are gorgeous, and you get a huge quantity in three color groups. (page 141 in the catalog).
I was inspired by the Paper Players, and this is pink champagne.
