Flat Vellum Shaker featuring Spellbinder's Fresh Picked Buttercups

Hello crafty friends! Today's card features Spellbinder's Fresh Picked Buttercups from the gorgeous Fresh Picked Collection. The buttercups have such a light and airy feel, I decided they would look extra pretty on a vellum background. And so, why not make it a flat, vellum shaker?!

  • Two pieces of dark green card stock were cut to 4 1/4" by 11" for the card base and 4 1/4" by 5 1/2" for the card front. The card base was scored but not creased.

  • The card front was lined up the bottom of the card base and a die from Essential Stylish Ovals was used to cut through both panels at once.

  • Two vellum panels were cut to just slightly smaller than A2 size.

  • Double sided tape was placed around the window on the card base and one of the vellum panels was adhered to it.

  • The adhesive tape was then place onto the vellum that was adhered to the card base. The shaker material was place in one layer on the vellum aUvoiding the adhesive. The second vellum panel was adhered on top.

  • The card front was adhered to the card base.

  • The oval die used to cut the windows and the smaller, consecutive one were taped together to cut a gold foil card stock frame. Tombow adhesive was applied to the back of the frame and left to dry until it was in its tacky state. The frame was adhered to the vellum butting up against the window's edge.

  • Fresh Picked Buttercups was cut from lemon, yellow, and green card stock. The centres were added to the flowers and the buds to the sprigs. The flowers were not adhered at the time.

  • Gold foil card stock was adhered to a double sided adhesive sheet and the sentiment from Fresh Picked Sentiments cut from it creating a sticker.

  • The first sprig was adhered to the top of the card front and the sentiment then placed on the vellum window. The rest of the sprigs were added only using liquid adhesive where they overlapped the card stock.

  • The flowers were added to the stem end points with a circle. Adhesive was placed on this circle and the surrounding foliage that the flower would overlap stabilizing the portion of the die cuts overlapping the vellum window.
