Embossed Shaker Cards

Combining two of our favourite cardmaking techniques in one, Crafter’s Companion’s Cut and Emboss folders will streamline your crafting and allow you to do both at the same time – genius! Not only that, there are stamps to match for an overall coordinated look. A time-saving staple for all the busy crafters out there, simply sandwich the folder and run through a die-cutting machine. Your card will seamlessly emboss and cut in one neat turn. You can then make your greetings as simple or detailed as you like – have a play with inks or give shakers a go.

Rainbow Shaker Card
1. Position white card into the Sunburst Gemini Cut and Emboss folder and run through your die-cutting machine. Trim to 12cm x 17.5cm. Apply Mustard Seed distress ink around the circular aperture.

2. Blend out into a rainbow effect using Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn, Mermaid Lagoon and Wilted Violet distress inks. Fix acetate behind the aperture and add 3D foam pads around the edge. Lightly blend Mustard Seed distress ink onto a white panel.

3. Once dry, stamp ‘You are my sunshine’ in black. Pour sequins over the sentiment and fix the panel on top. Mount onto a white blank. Stamp two hearts in pink, trim, then glue to the bottom-right. Embellish with sequins to finish.

Bee Shaker Card
1. Trim white card to 12.5cm x 17.5cm and run through your die-cutting machine using the Bee Happy Gemini Cut and Emboss folder. Blend yellow and orange distress inks onto the panel, applying the darker colour around the edges.

2. Secure acetate behind each aperture and stick 3D foam pads around the edges. Add sequins and layer orange card on top to create three shaker elements.

3. Stamp, cut out and attach three sentiments. Stamp and colour three bees, then fix with 3D foam pads. Matt the panel onto a white blank to complete.
