Using Nesting Dies to Make Shaker Cards | 6 Cards with LOTS of Tips & Tricks

Hi everyone!

Did you happen to catch my class during Scrapbook.com’s SBC Fest? During that class I shared some ways to use nesting dies to make shaker cards. If you missed the class, I’ll link it HERE.

I had so many shaker card ideas that I couldn’t fit them all into the SBC Fest class so I decided to make another video showing how I made the rest of my cards. So today I’m going to make a lot more shaker cards using nesting dies. I hope to provide you with lots of tips and tricks.

I used basic shape nesting dies such as rectangles, squares, hexagons, and hearts to make shaker cards.

I also used some not-so-basic shapes such as flowers, balloons, and even a Christmas Tree.

I made shaped shaker cards like this flower shaped shaker card.

I also made a heart shaped shaker card.

I combined basic shapes such as squares and rectangles to form a grid shaker card.

And finally, I made a shaker card window in the front of a card panel like this balloon shaker card.

4 Ways to Use Nesting Days in Cardmaking

Hi everyone!

Today I’m sharing four creative ways to using nesting dies in your cardmaking. The dies that I will be using are from the Spellbinders Precision Layering Basics Collection. There are four die sets in this collection including two sets for A2 size cards and two sets for mini slimline cards.

The Precision Layering A2 Dies have a Set A and Set B.  Each set contains 16 thin metal dies and creates evenly spaced layers that are spaced 1/8-inch for your A2 size cards. When using both Set A and Set B together, you can create layers that are spaced 1/16-inch

The Precision Layering Mini Slimline Dies also have a Set A and Set B. Each set contains 12 thin metal dies that creates evenly spaced layers that are 1/8-inch for mini slimline size cards. When using both Set A and Set B together, you can create layers that are spaced 1/16-inch.

To see these dies up close as well as four ways I used these dies in my cardmaking, watch my YouTube video below:
