Swedish House Crafts Home Is Not A Place Greeting Card

Hello all

I have a shaker card to share using the  Houses Die Set by Gummiapan.

Click Links To Buy

Cover a square card blank with patterned paper and tear a few strips of washi tape off and stick them to edges of the card.

For the shaker box i use craft foam instead of 3d sticky tape. First i find the two die sizes i want to use and then i place one inside the other and hold in place with washi tape.  I  then cut one or two frames from the foam and one from patterned paper.

 Next i cut the largest die from paper and from acetate. The foam frames i glue together, you can do more to create a deeper box. I glue the foam frames onto the rectangle cut from the patterned paper  and once the glue has dried i then add the micro beads and sequins. Then i seal it with the acetate and add the frame cut from patterned paper.

Glue lace along the back of the shaker box and then cut out three of the houses from patterned paper. Glue them to the front of the shaker box in a row and then add a sentiment to finish.

Thank you for visiting
