Coloring Die Cuts + Edge to Edge Shaker Card + Simon Blog Hop!

I always love a good shaker card—if you follow my creative journey, you see me make them often! In this project I am using new products from Simon Says Stamp’s new Splendor release and making an edge-to-edge shaker, decorated with die cuts that I’ve colored with inks and Copics.

The beautiful florals on this card are from the new Fine Floral Stem die and I added a greeting from the Birthday Basics stamp and die set. Inside the shaker are sequins from the Zest embellishment mix, and I added gems from the Cool Tones Pawsitively Dazzling Gem collection.
