Dahlia Mini Frame | Creating Shaker Cards with Thin Dies | by Alicia Havranek

Hello!  Today I will be featuring the lovely Dahlia Mini Frame Layering Die.  This is a thin delicate die that looks great on its own, but I wanted to create a shaker card with this die.  Thin dies can sometimes be difficult or impossible to create shaker cards with, but I will show you how with this die.

I first cut out each layer with 3 coordinating pieces of cardstock.  Layer A is to the far right, layer B is in the middle and layer C is to the far left.

I then glued each layer together.  Next, I took my card panel and traced the dahlia frame onto my card panel.  I carefully cut out the center of the card panel.  After cutting the center piece out, I added acetate to my card panel, then adhered my dahlia layers onto the acetate.

By doing this, I now have the space to add my foam adhesive to my card panel.  Add your favorite sequins.

For the back of my panel, or what will be showing through the shaker piece I ink blended some Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Ink.  I peeled off my foam backing and adhered the backing to my panel.  I then glued my panel to my white card base.

I used the Big Hello Sugar Script Die for my sentiment.  I seriously can’t get enough of these Big Sugar Script dies!  They are awesome and make mass producing so easy!

I hope you enjoyed this card and it got the wheels turning on how you can create shaker cards using these gorgeous thin dies.
