Hello and welcome to my blog and Youtube channel post today. As I mentioned yesterday I’m going to share with you what you can do with those cast offs from your die cut pieces. These pieces that are usually tossed in the trash are prime real estate to use as shaker elements. The possibilities are endless; just think about think about all these little pieces of cardstock that goes unused and tossed in the trash. If you want to see the card that inspired this technique you can click here. Here’s the two cards I created using this technique.
The die cut toss outs already had all this pretty color on them it was such a shame to not use them. So this was a great way to use them. I added window sheets to the die cuts and added some foam adhesive strips. Tossed in a few of the Tranquil Texture Sprinkles and added a back to the you but you will see in the video my little accident and cleaning up all the sprinkles, you can’t help to laugh. I know I did.
For the Hey card I just heat embossed the flowers from Wood Words a couple times . This is the card that I spilled the sprinkles, when I went to put the shaker together. To finish off the card I added friend simply with white embossed on black cardstock.
For the A Note for You card I embossed the flowers all the way around the card. For this card I created 3 little shakers from each letter. I then added the A Note for heat embossed in white on basic black cardstock.
