    Easter Shaker Notecards

    Hello Kat Scrappiness fans and welcome back to the blog!

    It’s Lisa here with you today and I have a fun trio of shaker notecards

    to share with you using the newly released Easter edition of the

    Crafter’s Essentials dies. This is a fun set that features several different dies

    perfect for Easter and Spring themed cards!

    Here is a picture of all the dies that come with this set:

    I used the bunny, chick and cracked egg to make 3 adorable shaker notecards.

    The Kat Scrappiness Easter themed sequin mixes and Doodlebug patterned paper

    were the perfect accessories for these cards!

    The first card was made using the bunny die from the set.

    I cut a card base out of card stock measuring 4″ x 8 ” and scored it at 4″.

    I used a piece of patterned paper from the Hoppy Easter paper pack

    cut to 4″ x 4″ to cover the card base.

    I then took a piece of white card stock and cut out a panel

    with the second largest Square Zig Zag die.

    I placed the bunny die in the center of that Zig Zag square

    and ran it through my Vagabond.

    That left the negative shape of the bunny in the panel which I then

    backed with acetate to form my shaker window.

    To make the foam tape curve around the back of the bunny

    I snipped small lines half way into the tape so that it would bend

    easily and not warp the paper.

    For the bunny shaker I used 3 different sequin mixes:

    Pink 3 mm Solid Star confetti mix

    Yellow 3 mm Solid Star confetti mix

    3 mm Mirrored Clear Hollow Stars

    It’s so much fun to see the mix of sequins and confetti shaking around.

    For the sentiment I stamped on a Stitched Flag Die and used the same

    patterned paper to back it with a larger Flag die.

    I also decorated the flag with a few stars from the shaker mix.

    Next up is the chick card.  The basic assembly of the card is just

    like the bunny card except I used different patterned paper and sequins.

    The patterned paper is also from the Doodlebug Hoppy Easter paper pack

    and the sequin mix is called Chicken or the Egg?

    I just love the little yellow chick that’s included in this mix!

    I tucked one of them behind the sentiment flag.

    The last card I have to share with you is the cracked egg card.

    Again the basic assembly is as explained in the bunny card above.

    The patterned paper for this card is from the Doodlebug Simply Spring paper pack

    and the sequin mix is called Easter Egg Parade!

    The tiny die cut Easter eggs in this mix are just too cute!

    These cards were so much fun to make! You can really get creative with the

    patterned papers and different sequin mixes, there’s so many fun combinations!
