By using a brad to hold all the cards together, you can fold your hand, and refan your cards as you wish. Who doesn't like an interactive card.
I was really excited about the link between this card and the sentiment. By having one red heart inside the shaker, you would literally be "following your heart" as you shake the contents around. Yay! The pink camera paper is American Crafts Amy Tangerine Yes, Please.
I never make shaker cards ... mostly because I dislike using foam tape. Well, the negative cut of the card die turns out to be perfect for making shaker cards! Instead of using foam tape, I cut two layers of chipboard and adhered them together to make the inside of the shaker. Then made the contents from the club/diamond/spade/heart dies.
One of my rules for buying dies is that it has to be something that I can't do on my own with scissors or a cutter. The rectangle card die at first glance seems to fit that category, because who can't trim a rectangle and then round the corners. However, when you use the die to cut the inside of something, that's something you can't do on your own, especially with the rounded inside corners.
Here's a sneak from a post tomorrow that also uses the card die and stamps (for my son's 10th birthday).
More inspiration waits for you with the rest of the fabulous CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Design Team:
Tomorrow we reveal the last stamp set before they are released on Friday. Thanks for looking!
