Christmas In July Day 5 - Merry Mint Shaker

Day 5 of my Christmas in July 2020 celebration. Today I wanted to share a really fun shaker card I made using the Candy Twist die from The Rabbit Hole Designs, Rinea Foiled Paper and Sparkle Blends Limited Edition Merry Mint sequins mix.

I am so tickled with this shaker. It took a bit of doing to figure it all out but the result is spectacular!

Here's what I did....

Step 1 - Cover a 4.5 x 6" piece of cardstock with Arctic/Gold Glossy foiled paper.

Step 2 - Die cut the Candy Twist design on a diagonal pattern leaving at least 1/4" space on all sides of each cut.  This is to ensure that your cardstock stays in a single piece.

Step 3 - Glue the Arctic diecut piece of cardstock to a piece of acetate. This will give the cardstock some support and be the window for the shaker.

Step 4 - Cut several Candy Twist diecuts from Ruby/Gold Glossy foiled paper.

Step 5 - Glue the Ruby Candy Twist diecuts in the Arctic card panel.

Step 6 - Cut a double stitched frame from Ruby/Gold Glossy foiled paper.

Step 7 - Cover the Arctic panel with the Ruby stitched frame, trim away any excess from the Arctic Panel.

Step 8 - Create a well on the back side of the Arctic panel using double stick foam tape.

Step 9 - Fill the shaker cavity with Sparkle Blends Merry Mint sequins mix.

Step 10 - Cover the shaker with a piece of white cardstock.

Step 11 - Cover a card blank with Emerald/Emerald Starstruck foiled paper. Crop the corners with a corner rounder.

Step 12 - Mount the shaker card to the card base.

Step 13 - Diecut sentiment from Cobalt/Gold Glossy foiled paper.  Adhere the sentiment to the card.

Isn't this such a fun design. I just love all of the different elements in the shaker mix, it really creates such a festive feel to the shaker!
