More Shaker Kit Fun

Hi everyone! Happy Monday! Today I have two cards to share using Queen & Company‘s incredibly easy and VERY fun shaker card kits.

My first card uses the Stars Foam Front Kit, Stars Foam Front Die and Pretty Presents 6″ x 6″ Mat Stack.

Queen & Company Stars Foam Front Shaker

The kit comes with supplies to create one shaker card – card base, pre-cut foam, transparency and card stock cover. In lieu of the card stock cover, I used the coordinating die to create the striped background.

Inside the star openings, I placed super sparkly Diamonds and Tiny Bubbles toppings. Along the side, I added red twine and a sentiment tag using Paper SmoochesCelebrate Word die and woohoo from Noteworthy stamp set.

On my next card, I used the Butterflies Shaker Kit with lovely Flirty Florals paper.

Queen & Company Butterfly Foam Shaker Kit

The butterflies kit comes with nine self-adhesive foam shapes, pre-cut acetate covers for each, three coordinating metal dies, and a clear storage pouch. This is one of my favorite kits. :)

I filled my butterfly with Diamonds and Bitty Beads then added a few Pink Posies onto the butterfly center and the pink gingham paper.

To create the beaded border, I applied a line of X-Press It High Tack double-sided tape then poured Bitty Beads over to adhere. I hadn’t yet decided on which sentiment to use and once I did decide, I realized the y (from Paper Smooches Scripty Sayings) was going to dip into the line of beads. To solve the problem, I simply used a craft knife to easily cut away that tiny bit of the beaded strip.
