Simple Shaker Card

Hello friends!

I am sharing a simple shaker card with the new Hexagon Dies from Pretty Pink Posh
Here is my guest post to the May Release blog hop.

I came up with a very simple shaker card design. I first stamped the background with Bold Bloom and adhere the Hexagon dies. In between, I sandwiched it with Double-sided Scotch tape (all around the hexagon die) and sequins.

The sweet images do all the work for you. Using kraft card stock (such as Neenah's) as part of the design element is super easy and effective. These Hexagon dies are like no other as they have built-in stitched lines! AND you can't beat those lovely scalloped edges!

If you have never tried making shaker cards, this is likely the easiest kind that you can make in a jiffy. All you need is any shape of die, double-sided dimensional tape and some acetate (use packaging if you don't have any).

You're right, the kraft hexagon really works as a design element as well as your shaker. Looks so pretty on that sweet stamped background with those darling bees.
