Hi everyone! Today I am participating in a special blog hop celebrating Simon Says Stamp’s DieCember™ release!

If you have already been hopping along with us, you should have arrived here from the amazing Heather Hoffman’s blog; but if you are just joining in, WELCOME! You can find the entire hop list at the bottom of this post.

I love creating shaker cards and I thought it would be fun to use the new Fold Over Tree die and create a different type of shaker!

This one is only a partial shaker because the tree only partially die cuts into the cardstock; it also does not shake much (on purpose), as I wanted to have lots of sequins sandwiched in there to create a colorful background inside the shaker window.

I also wanted to add some special touches to this card by die cutting the Corbel Border die into the card base… the result is a delicate, see-through design that adds an elegant touch to the card. I had so much fun making these cards, I ended up doing a set of 4!



To see how easy these cards were to make (and how fun!), be sure to check out the video below! If you enjoy, please give it a thumbs up and subscribe to my channel for more weekly inspiration.
