Vintage Shaker Card

Hi everyone! Jenn here today sharing a fun Vintage shaker card created using the amazing Tutti Designs Dies!
There are so many ways to cut, trim, and turn these die cuts making them very versatile for all of your paper projects!
The Tutti Dies used here:

For my card, I started with a 5 X 6 1/2 White base card blank
Starting with the inside of the card, cut pale pink card stock to 4 3/4 X 6 1/4. Rough the edges and ink with a brown tone. I used Distress Ink Vintage Photo. Adhere to inside panel of the card using tape runner or glue. Cut one large Dotted Nesting Rectangle Die from white card stock. Ink edges and adhere. Add some fussy cuts or stickers to embellish.

Next, we will build the panel for the front. Cut another piece of pale pink card stock to 4 3/4 X 6 1/4. Rough and ink the edges the same as the inside. Cut two of the largest Dotted Nesting Rectangles from Patterned paper. (be sure to cut them on the pattern sideways.)

Next we will create the shaker element.............
Use a Circle punch or circle die to punch the correct size from paper of choice. I used a piece of the same designer paper I used throughout the card with a picture. I also added a butterfly to it. Place sequins, dew drops, or other filler in shaker and finally adhere the cut circle and set aside to dry.

*TIP* My shaker base uses the largest circle however be sure to size yours with the die first to ensure the same result.

Using the two large Dotted Rectangle Die Cuts, Place them as shown below on your cutting pad with the large Cross Stitched Nesting Circle Die placed where you will put the shaker. I lightly traced over the circle in pencil so I could die cut them in the same spot.

Using scissors or a circle punch hollow out the circle die cut.

Adhere the two Dotted Rectangle die cuts to the pale pink, add the shaker element and then place these as shown and adhere using a strong glue.

Once it is dry and secure, add flowers, ribbon and some splatters of white and pink!
For my card, I used the Vine die to cut one from white card stock and then cut it into individual leaves to embellish.
