Merry Everything

Merry everything 1

For the Merry Everything and the striped die cut card just layer all the pieces as shown.

For the shaker cards - Here's how to build it.

Glue the acetate film on the back side of the circle opening with a liquid glue. Be cautious to not smear the glue because it will show on the acetate when it dries. Allow to dry completely.

IMG_7183

For the second step cut small fringe cuts in the double sided adhesive strips. This will allow you to go around the circle seamlessly. Peel off one side of the adhesive and attach going around the entire edge of the circle as shown.

IMG_7198

Peel away the side of the adhesive that is exposed and add sequins to make the shaker items.

IMG_7194

Then just cut the background and attach to the adhesive foam to seal the sequins in place. I used the striped patterned paper with the snowflake as the backer on one and the joy sentiment print out on the other.

Build the rest of the cards as shown.

Please feel free to print this photos as reference. I've stopped including a color photo copy of the cards in the kits to keep costs of my kits affordable.

Hello Crafty Friends, Here are a few tips and tricks for putting your cards together. Most pieces are cut to size already so i'll just point out a few not so obvious details. Otherwise just layer all the pieces as you see in the photo.

Happy Birthday Blue Polka Dot Flag Card - Attach the aqua pom pom trim to the back of the striped patterned paper mat. Tuck the tiny wood stick  behind the patterned paper mat. Trim a point in the flag shape and glue to the wood stick. Attach sequins with liquid glue.

Tag Holder - Fold along crease lines and glue together. Insert white tag and add embellishments

Balloon Card- Ink edges of balloon and stars. Attach twine with liquid glue. Place brad through small tag shape and attach to ribbon with liquid glue or glue dots.

Cupcake Card - Wrap ribbon around the patterned paper and tie in a knot before attaching to the card. Add happy birthday tag, red twine bow and star attached to the small blue tag to the card with the tiny clothes pin.
