One thing that I just love using die cuts for is to make shaker cards, so I knew I wanted to do that with this amazing and cute new product!
First, I took the Merry Pigmas set, and colored up my piggy with alcohol markers. I used the coordinating die to cut them out (you can actually get the set & die bundle here for a reduced price). I set my piggy aside for later.
Next, using the Candy Twist stencil, I used Oxide Inks to blend a red ombré on a 4.125″ x 5.375″ piece of white cardstock., going from a darker red on top to a lighter red on the bottom. The decided I wanted to use my Candy Twist die and cut 3 horizontal lines from this piece. I ran the stenciled piece through my die cutter 3 times to get this done. I took the now die cut panel, and adhered it to an A2-sized piece of red cardstock so it had a nice frame.
By having the die cut panel on top of the red, it acted like a track for needing to die cut again through the red panel (I was creating 3 shaker windows, after all). I ran my panel through the die cutting machine 3 more times with the Candy Twist die. I then took 3 scrap pieces of acetate and adhered them on the back of red piece of cardstock.
Next, I took more red cardstock and die cut 3 Candy Twist Dies. I took one die to adhere over each window directly on top of the acetate.
Taking foam tape and doubling it up, I flipped my main panel over, and created 3 sectioned off areas for my shaker bits. I poured red and white sequins into each of these wells, removed the backing of my foam tape, and adhered a 4.125″ x 5.375″ piece of red and white scalloped pattern cardstock directly onto the back. I gave my panel a quick shake and was good to proceed (meaning nothing flew out of the foam tape that required re-adhering).
To finish up this card, I stamped the sentiment “Happy Hoglidays” from Merry Pigmas on white cardstock and framed it in red cardstock to make it into a banner. I adhered my piggy and sentiment strip directly to my card panel, and took the whole unit and adhered it to an A2-sized card base!
Here are the products that I used for this project:
