I get so excited every time I get new die cuts from Carta Bella. I immediately start brainstorming what I would like to make with them. Today I am going to share with you how I made this adorable shaker card using Carta Bella’s and Echo Parks’s new Designer Dies, Phrases #1 and Summer Sun.
First let me show you the supplies I used. Now, you can make your shaker card using other dies from Carta Bella or

3 pieces of cardstock measuring:
1 @ 5 ½ x 11 inches (score in the middle at 5 ½ inches)
2 @ 5 ½ x 5 ½ inches
Foam Tape Adhesive
A piece of transparency or clear plastic big enough to cover the size of the die cut shapes
Beads or Sequins
First, I laid my dies down on one the 5 ½ x 5 ½ piece of cardstock. I used the washi tape to keep the dies in place.
I then ran it through my manual die cutting machine and this is what it ended up looking like.
Then I used liquid glue all around the die cut images and glued on my pieces of clear, thin plastic.
Next using the foam tape, I adhered around the die cut images making sure to have all corners flush so that none of the beads could get out. I decided I wanted my card to have a little more dimension put on two layers of the foam tape. After I went around the images, I went around the whole 5 ½ x 5 ½ inch square.
I pealed off the back of the foam adhesive and added my beads.
Next I laid down a couple of different pieces of patterned paper and put them over the die cut images.
I adhered the last piece of 5 ½ x 5 ½ cardstock to the back.
Finally, I embellish my card and adhered it to the scored 5 ½ x 11 piece of cardstock. Here are a couple of close ups.
