Diorama Shaker

Hello once again. The Alphabet Challenge has started a new challenge with a new theme. We have reached the letter ‘X’, and Debbie has chosen the theme as ‘Xtra Folds’. Here is my card:

This card took quite a lot of work to put together, but I am pleased with the outcome.

I used a diorama card base, and from the front panel I die cut a floral heart. This die set is from Crafters Companion I have had for absolutely ages, and ‘found’ it when I was once again sorting through some of my stash.

The leaves and flowers are from MFT, some die cut from the same pink floral dotty background card, and some from a light pink card stock from Concord & 9th.

I added some acetate to the back of the floral heart so they would be supported, and at this point I decided to make it into a shaker card – me, making a shaker card…………wonders never cease!

I used another of the layering heart dies form the same set, cut another piece of acetate, used Heffy Doodle foam tape, some pink and clear sparkly thingies, and there we have it – a diorama shaker card.

For the sentiment, I think I’ll add something to the back of the card – or maybe write something special for mum-in-law for Mother’s Day next month.

I hope you can come and join us for our ‘Xtra Folds’ challenge – I look forward to seeing what Xtra folds you create. xx

  1. Gorgeous!! It may have taken a while, but it looks fabulous!! Love the elegant heart die and such a genius idea to turn this into a shaker card as well as a fun fold! Love the bright pink of your “sparkly thingies”; they really pop with the other muted colors! And I love that the shaker is see through all the way to the background of the card! Thanks for playing with The House That Stamps Built.
