Pep Rally - First Class Friend Shaker Card

Now that we've teased and tempted you all week long, it's almost time for you to grab all of your favorite Brand Spankin' New products from MFT.

But first…it's time for our Die-namics Feature and Pre-Release PEP Rally!  Our Design Team has been busy creating jaw-dropping and inspiring projects for you, and we've saved the best for last.  Here is an in-depth look at this month's Die-namics, with an opportunity to revisit the amazing sets being released tonight at 10pm EST RIGHT HERE.  And while we are at it, how about we make your life even easier with a "cheat sheet" of all that's new?  Head over to the MFT Blog to print out a shopping list.


As I was stamping for this release, I discovered what that the new First Class Friend die makes a quick and easy shaker card.  I must admit that I'd never made a shaker card before, but it was super easy.  I took lots of pictures to show you my process - so fair warning! 



I started by constructing the base of my card.  I stamped some sentiments from the First Class friend stamp set on a blue middle piece and die cut 2 of the yellow outer frames.  I glued the middle sentiment panel down along with one of the outer frames.  I took the second outer frame and ran red line tape along the back.

 

I peeled the back off the adhesive and stuck a piece of acetate to it.  My acetate measures 2 and 1/4" by 3 and 1/8".  I also took some foam dimensional tape and ran it along the outer frame that was already adhered to the card base.   

             

I filled the frame with some micro beads and then carefully peeled the backing from the foam tape.  I took the second frame with the acetate adhered and layered it over top of the first frame - lining up all the notches on the frame.  


And here you can see a close up of the finished shaker portion of my card.  I also used the new Prima Donna Petals die to embellish and Pure Innocence Feeling Froggy as well.  


I hope you'll be inspired to look at your dies differently too!  I love how versatile they can be!
