Instead of making the banners as suggested in June 2016 Paper Pumpkin, we will make a Graduation card.

I’m really not a fan of Shaker cards but I really liked the way my sister did this one – the Shaker is sitting on top of the card so I had to give it a try. 

Tip Top Taupe card 5-1/2” x 8-1/2”.  Fold in half for a side fold card – a bone folder gives you a crisp fold.  Stamp or sign the back.  Set aside.

The kit comes with white baker’s twine.  To re-color it, cut the white baker’s twine 16” long.  Set the twine on the Peekaboo Peach ink pad.  Set a sponge on top and pull the twine to recolor it.  Pull it through until you are happy with the color.  Color the end you were hanging on to.  Set aside to dry. 

Using the Misti or Stamp-a-ma-jig, ink and stamp the dotted circle from the Banner Surprise stamp set with Mint Macaron ink on to one of the die-cut white circles that come with this kit.

Repeat using the Misti to add Happy from the Banner Surprise stamp set to the center of the circle using Peekaboo Peach ink.  Sponge edges of the circle with Tip Top Taupe ink.  Set aside. 

Stamp Graduation from the Banner Surprise stamp set on a scrap of 1” wide white cardstock with Tip Top Taupe ink.  Die cut with the Bunch of Banners Framelits.  Sponge edges of the circle with Tip Top Taupe ink.  Add Dimensionals to each end.  Set aside. 

Add a pinch of sequins (included in the kit) to one of the triangular cello bags that also come in the kit.  Insert the stamped circle. 

Bend the top of the cello bag to fit tight against the top of the circle.  Close with scotch tape. 

Cut the ends off flush with the triangle. 

Apply snail across the top of the cello bag and adhere to the inside of card.  Secure with a piece of scotch tape at each corner. 

Cover with 1-1/2” of washi tape (included in the kit) at the top of each corner – I like to add snail to the sticky side of the washi tape to help hold it in place. 

Add snail adhesive behind the cello bag to help hold in place. 

Adhere Graduation just under the word Happy.  Set aside. 

Cut the striped card from the kit to 3-3/4” x 5”.  Sponge edges with Tip Top Taupe ink. Over stamp the front with the Banner Surprise stamp set that comes with the kit: striped circle in Mint Macaron ink, Dotted circle in Tip Top Taupe ink and the small background dots in Peekaboo Peach ink.

Draw a line across the back to match the existing punch bite.  

Use the 1/8” circle punch to take a half a bite at the opposite side of the panel at your pencil mark. 

The Woodgrain embossing folder is etched fairly deep thus sometimes breaking the cardstock.  To prevent this, cut regular computer weight paper to the size of the folder.  Adhere it to the Logo side of the folder with snail.  Run it through the Big Shot. 

Leave the paper in the folder as it can be used many times.  Place the striped panel inside the embossing folder with the stripes facing the Logo and run through the Big Shot.  No tears!  Add twine around the bites.  Tie into a knot then tie into a bow.  Place glue dot behind the knot. 

Die cut dragonfly using the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Dies (Occasions 2017) from gold foil.   Set aside.

Before I carry on, please watch this video by Lisa Curciofor labeling your Layering Framelits.  It makes it so much easier to describe which die you are using!  I didn’t have a fine tip Sharpie pen at the time I labeled mine so they are a little hard to read.

Cut Peekaboo Peach cardstock 1-3/4”.  Stamp a phrase from the Bunch of Blossoms stamp set with Tip Top Taupe ink.  Die cut with Layering Circles Framelits #2.  Sponge edges in Tip Top Taupe ink.  Set aside. 

Using a circle included in the kit, die cut one with the Layering Circles Framelits #B. Adhere to the Peekaboo Peach circle.  Apply Dimensionals and set aside. 

Cut Mint Macaron cardstock 5-1/4” x 4” for the outside of the card.  Tape the Layering Oval Framelits #E and #3 together so they cut at the same time.  Cut from the center of the Mint Macaron panel. 

Adhere Mint Macaron panel to card front.  Adhere the striped panel to card front.  Set aside.

Cut Window Sheet 2-1/2” x 3-1/2”.  Die cut with Layering Oval Framelits #E.

Adhere window sheet to the Mint Macaron oval window with two-way tape or snail

Rub the wrong side with an Embossing Buddy to reduce static for the sequins.  Set aside. 

Here is how to use fun foam to make the shaker card. Tape the Layering Oval Framelits #5 and #3 together.  Cut Fun Foam 2-1/4” x 3-1/4”.  Die cut the foam with Framelits. 

Apply two-way tape or snail to one side of the Fun Foam oval.  This needs to be filled in very solid to keep the sequins from sneaking out!  Adhere to the window sheet oval.  Set aside.

Decide where you are going to put the shaker on your card and make a visual of where the sequins will go.

Rub that area with the embossing buddy to reduce static.

Place a pinch and a half of sequins directly on the card. 

Apply two-way tape or snail to the bottom of the Fun Foam oval.  I like to add a narrow row of Tombow glue to the foam as well.  Adhere the window over the sequins.  Press firmly. 

Add glue to the dragonfly’s head and tail.  Place his head on the shaker and adhere in place.  Add two Peekaboo Peach sequins to the dragonfly’s body with snail. 

Add phrase.  Trim the baker’s twine if necessary. 

Mint Macaron bag envelopes are included in the kit so that is what we will use.  

Since posting this, I picked up a package of fine tip Sharpie pens – I didn’t even know they existed!  I will re-label my framelits with these.  They really are fine.  Label them on the non-cutting side as my ink transferred to the cardstock when I cut it – I had used the regular Sharpie so maybe the fine tip won’t transfer.  I haven’t tried it yet.
