Elizabeth Craft Designs December Designer Challenge

I'm excited to be sharing a post for the Elizabeth Craft Designs Designer Challenge for December.  This month the challenge is to use any of the Garden Notes - Frame It/Stitched Nested Dies.  There are four different die sets in this collection … squares; rectangles; ovals and circles.

You can join in the challenge for a chance to win a prize OVER ON THE ECD BLOG by answering the challenge question, Which of the Garden Notes - Frame It/Stitched die sets would you use on a project and how would you use it?

These dies are a wonderful addition to your collection as they leave the stitch marks on the piece the shape falls out of.  I thought it would be really fun to use them to make a shaker card.  

Cut a 6" square piece of 100# Soft Finish Cardstock.  Die cut the Frame-It Square and Heart Spray from the piece as shown.

Add adhesive around the square opening on the back of panel and attach a piece of clear plastic (transparency) over the opening.

Cut another piece of 100# Soft Finish cardstock to 3 3/4" square.  Stamp hearts (I used the heart created with all the little "love" words) across paper with Archival Ink.

Back to the first panel.  On the back (the side you adhered the clear panel to) add foam tape all the way around the square opening.  You want the foam tape to match up at the corners and not leave any gaps so that nothing can fall out.  *I did take a picture of this but somehow that picture is damaged*  Add whatever you want on the inside of your shaker to this area.  I used some small beads, some holeless round beads, and chunky glitters.  Carefully remove the liners from the foam tape taking care that none of your pieces pop up and sticks to the tape.  Place the stamped square of cardstock over your shaker area, stamped side down so it will show through the window.

Add pieces of foam tape for support around the edges of the panel and in the Heart Spray area.

Cut a piece of red cardstock to attach over the back.  This will finish the back and show through the Heart Spray cut out area.  Back another piece of the same red cardstock with Clear Double Sided Adhesive and cut the word Love and the Hanging Heart element.

Stamp "Mine! You're all mine!" on a scrap of card, ink the edges and add a gold bow.

Die cut the Ladder Fern three times, ink and shape.  Die cut the pieces for Rose 2, ink, shape and assemble.

Ink the edges of the front panel.  Attach all elements as shown. 

I hope you've enjoyed this project.  If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

Hugs, Wanda
