Hello there everyone and happy Friday! It’s Lydia here with you. Today I’ll be sharing how you can create flat vellum shaker cards that are mail friendly.
I started with a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ piece of acetate that I then attached one of the dies from Halftone Hearts Nesting Die Set onto using glue tape. This works as a guide that will help you create windows in the correct place on both the card panel and card base. I used this acetate/die guide to cut windows into 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock panels and into the front of 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ top folding card bases.
Once all of my panels and card bases were cut, I then could add the vellum. I added tape around the heart window on the back of the panel, added a piece of vellum over, then added glue tape around the heart window again, this time taking care that the tape met all the way around so no sequins could escape. I removed the backing from this tape before adding the sequins and then folding the vellum over to trap the sequins inside. Once this was done, I could then adhere the die-cut panel into place on the card base to hide any adhesive.
To finish, I added a sweet sentiment from the Love Letters Stamp Set. I stamped these onto strips of Jet Black Cardstock and heat set them using Pure White Embossing Powder.
