Seed Bead Shaker Card | Pretty Pink Posh

Happy Sunday y’all! I usually don’t blog/share on weekends, but I couldn’t resist sharing this non traditional color Fall cards using some new-ish products (and bonus! all the products are used at on sale till 11/1!).

When I started creating this card, I really wanted to see some of my seed beads to create a shaker, but after die cutting the shaker card, I didn’t want to let the inked die cuts go to waste so made a second card!

For my first “main” card, I started by inked up an A2 piece using distress oxides in Speckled Egg, Victorian Velvet, and Spun Sugar. Next I splattered it with water, and gold paint to add some texture. Next I die cut a random collection of dies from the Falling Leaves Coordinating Dies to cover most of the card front. After die cutting the inked background I kept the die attached in the same pattern and cut a piece of fun foam to help create the shaker.

To create the shaker, I backed the die cut panel with some acetate and then added the foam layer, and filled it with seed beads to match the ink blending. I used Aquamarine, Blush, and Cotton Candy from the Posh Seed Bead Bundle. I added it to a A2 top folding card base and finished it off with the Thank You Script Die cut from matte gold paper.

I was about to trash the die cut leaves, along with the foam cut outs, and I was like, wait I can make a second card! I used black ink to stamp the coordinating images on to the die cuts from the Falling Leaves Stamp Set, and then attached them to the matching foam die cuts. I added the Thank You Script Die cut from matte gold paper to the center of another A2 top folding card base and arranged the leaves around it.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope that you were inspired to create something! Make sure to tag me @everydayengineered and @prettypinkposh on Instagram and join the Facebook group so that we can see what you have created!
