Hello friends! Amy K. here for another Throwback Thursday where I feature an older Pretty Pink Posh Die. This month I am sharing a cute “baby” Congrats shaker card using Storybook 2.
I used the Storybook 2 Die as a traditional “frame” out of white cardstock to make a shaker card. I adhered a panel of clear acetate to the back of the panel. My sentiment, from Everyday Greetings, was stamped directly onto the long panel of acetate with StazOn black ink. I set this panel aside to finish the rest of my card.
To create the rest of the shaker, I adhered a piece of shimmer polka dot paper to a white notecard as my shaker “background”. I combined several things for my shaker contents…….die cut stars (using Stitched Star Dies), Hydrangea Seed Beads, and Iridescent Mini Star Confetti. I love the combination and even though there are bigger shaker contents, it still shakes perfectly!
My focal point is the adorable bird and chick from Birdie Friends. I’ve Copic colored them with B21, B93, B95, and B97. After diecutting the images with the coordinating Birdie Friends Dies, they were added with foam adhesive over a larger Stitched Star Die on the Storybook 2 panel. My finished panel was then foam adhered to my prepared notecard and shaker contents. As a last touch, I added a blue twine bow.
Along with this shaker card by Amy, I have a few cards that have used the Storybook 2 in the past. Click on the photos below to see the original post from the designers
I hope you are inspired to create new cards using this older die set!
