Using Nesting Dies to Make Shaker Cards – Scrapbook.com SBC Fest

Hi Crafty Friends!

I had so much fun teaching at the Scrapbook.com SBC Fest 2022! There were so many amazing instructors teaching classes during the SBC Fest two-day virtual event. If you missed it, don’t worry.  You can view all of the SBC FEST videos here — CLICK HERE

During my session, I taught a class demonstrating how to use how to use nesting dies to make shaker cards. I demonstrated how to use basic shapes such as rectangles and circles to make shaker cards and I also demonstrated how to use not so basic shapes to make shaker cards. I made three shaker cards in my video and I’m sharing them in this post.

You can view my instructional video here.  (Once on the page, simply scroll down to Day 2 to find my name which will link directly to my video.)

The first way, and probably the most common way, to make a shaker card from nesting dies is to die cut a frame. To do this, simply take two nesting dies, one slightly larger than the other, and layer them together. This will give you a frame. You can do this with nesting dies of any shape — rectangles, circles, squares, just to name a few.

For this card, I stenciled a piece of cardstock and then used the Spellbinders Precision Layering Dies and die cut the second largest die and third largest die to create the frame. After diecutting the frame, I added a piece of acetate to the back. Next, I added double-sided adhesive foam tape to the back of the frame. Finally, add the shaker pieces to the top of the card base, added the frame on top, and added my stamped images. The stamped images are from Pink and Main’s Be a Mermaid stamp set.

The second way to use nesting dies to make shaker cards is to die cut the nesting dies out of the top layer of your card panel.

For this card, I cut a card panel to 5″ x 7″. I placed three Scrapbook.com Nested Circle dies on top of the card panel.  Next, I adhered the dies to the panel with Scrapbook.com Mint Tape so they wouldn’t move when diecutting. Next, added a piece of acetate to the back of the card panel and then add double-sided adhesive foam to the back, making sure to add the foam around all of the circles and edges of the card panel.

Next, I added a stenciled background to a piece of cardstock that measures 5″ x 7″. I added stamped images and sequins to the stenciled background. Finally, I added the top panel to the stenciled panel and then added it to a 5″ x 7″ card base.

For my next card, I made a shaker card with the shaker element being a not-so-basic shape. I used the Scrapbook.com Nested Fancy Circle Border Dies. Since the die that I used has scallops around it, I knew it would be very difficult to add foam to the back to build up the walls of the shaker. Therefore, for this card, I stacked the decorative circle die cuts to build the walls of the shaker element.

You can die cut as many pieces of cardstock you need to build up the walls of your shaker element. The height of your shaker element depends upon how thick the shaker pieces are. If you have thicker shaker pieces, you will want more layers of cardstock. If you have thinner shaker pieces, you will want to use less layers of cardstock.

For my card, I die cut the fifth largest decorative circle seven times. I glued six of the decorative circles together to create the shaker element. Next, I glued acetate to the top of the stack of decorative circles and then added the seventh circle to the top. The seventh circle is used to cover the acetate piece.

Mermaid Slimline Card - Pink and Main

Under the Sea Cards

Hi everyone! Today I’m sharing three under the sea cards that I made using the Be a Mermaid stamp set from Pink and Main. To see this stamp set up close and how I made these cards, watch my YouTube video below:

My first card is a shaker card. For the background, I used the Catch a Wave 6 x 6 embossing folder from Pink and Main and then inked the background using distress oxide inks — Peacock Feathers, Broken China, and Blueprint Sketch. I added the sentiment to the background using white embossing powder and adhered the mermaid to the background. I used a stitched scalloped rectangle frame die, acetate, and added some sequins that matched the colors of the mermaid.

For my second card, I made a mini slimline card. This card measures 3 1/2″ x 6″.  I used the wave pattern paper from Pink and Main’s Vitamin Sea paper pad and cut it to 3 3/8″ x 5 7/8″. I love the wave design on this pattern paper as it looks like the mermaid and other sea creatures are swimming under water. I used a border die to create a sandy hill at the bottom of the card layer and fussy cut some of the shells from the pattern paper pad. I added a sentiment using white embossing powder and added the sea creatures to the card.

For my third card, I created an ocean scene. I used a wave die to die cut two pieces of pattern paper from Pink and Main’s Vitamin Sea pattern paper pad for the ocean waves at the bottom of the card. This particular mermaid stamp is two pieces — the head and the tail. I love how this stamp looks like she is swimming in the water. I also used Pink and Main’s Sunny Hello Die set and added the sun at the top of the card. I used a 2 3/4″ stitched circle die to add a center to the sun. I added the Sunny Hello word die to the top of the sun.
