Designer Tip: Tell someone they are beautiful with a shaker card.



  1. Card front: Place the card with the fold on top. Cover with Ruby Red pink paper. Glue a 6 3/8”x4 7/8” Ruby Red maroon border paper with the border on the left.
  2. Place the oval cutting die centered horizontally, 3/8” from the right edge. Place in the die cutting machine to cut through all layers.
  3. Glue a 6 3/8”x4¾” acetate on the back of the card front.
  4. Back the flower and leaves on the “beautiful” Dazzles™ with Ruby Red gray and maroon dot papers. Cut close to the Dazzles™ edge. Die cut the oval cutting die horizontally, in the center of a 4¼”x3¼” Ruby Red pink paper. Place the backed Dazzles™ over the cut away oval. Cut around the Dazzles™, leaving a 1/8” border. Glue in place over the window on the card front.
  5. Place the Dazzles™ words on a 1 5/8”x 1/2” Ruby Red pink paper. Mat on Ruby Red gray paper with 1/16” borders. Foam tape on the top left. Back a small, medium, and large butterfly Dazzles™ with Ruby Red papers. Foam tape around the oval. Zot a ribbon bow on the bottom right of the oval window.
  6. Cut two 6¼”x4¾” Adhesive Craft Foam pieces. Peel the back off one sheet, and stick the pieces together. Place the oval cutting die 5/8” from the right, centered. Run through the machine, to cut through both layers. Peel off the back of the second layer of foam, and glue to the acetate, matching the window on the card front. Place sequins in the well, and glue a 6 3/8”x4¾” Ruby Red light gray floral paper over the foam, making a good seal around the window.
  7. Card Inside: Mat a 5¾”x4½” light gray floral paper on Ruby Red dark maroon paper with 1/8” borders. Glue centered.
  8. Back the center only of the “Smile” Dazzles™ with Ruby Red pink paper. Glue on the top left. Zot a ribbon bow on the bottom of the circle Dazzles™.
  9. Cut around the outside of the “Smile” Dazzles™ to use the “innies”. Place on Ruby Red pink paper, and cut around the outside. Place the “&” and “Shine” Dazzles™ on the circle. Glue on the bottom right. Zot a ribbon bow on the top. Back two small butterflies with Ruby Red papers. Glue three butterflies as shown.
