It’s Nathalie here and I am so excited to be opening our Sincere Sentiments Week with a set of shaker cards. I love this new Sincere Sentiments release; the stamps and metal dies have quickly become favorites of mine!
Supplies | Sincere Sentiments Best of Friends Stamp, Sincere Sentiments Best of Friends Metal Die, Sincere Sentiments Best of Friends Add-on Stamp, Sincere Sentiments Best of Friends Add-on Metal Die, The Best Paper Stack, Cool Solids Paper Stack, Warm Solids Paper Stack
For this first card, I used the large flower die from the Best of Friends Add-on Metal Die set and put it through the machine three times eyeing the distance between them (like I did previously here). I backed each with solid cardstock from the Warm and Cool Solids Paper Stacks and filled each pocket with matching sequins.
For the sentiment, I combined two stamps from the Best of Friends Stamp (then hand cut the ‘S’ from the “Friends” die-cut). I could not resist using the miniature “for you” tag which I stamped on green cardstock and adorned with a string bow. I love it!
To embellish the card, I added black stamping directly on the background, but also stamped flowers in colors matching the background of each pocket.
My second card has a simpler and cleaner design with a classic, central round shaker featuring the sentiment inside the shaker.
Again, I used papers from both the Warm and Cool Solids Paper Stacks, truly must-haves for any card makers, and stamps from the Best of Friends Stamp for the sentiment. The variety of fonts in this set makes for awesome combinations!
I embellished the front of the card with small flowers and flower centers from the Best of Friends Add-on Stamp.
I really enjoyed making these shaker cards and I hope you now feel like making some too!
Make sure to come back here to the blog all week as other design team members will share more inspiration with these new additions to the Sincere Sentiments collection!
