Happy Fourth of July, America!

Happy birthday, America! I hope everyone has a safe and joyful 4th of July.

I am a huge fan of using quilt die cuts for card making. Today, I changed it up a bit and turned my card into a shaker card. Super fun!

  1. This card is amazing!!! I bought that die after seeing you use it, it's so versatile!! How do you make the sides of your thick adhesive layer look nice when making a shaker card? Mine always looks yucky :(

    1. Thanks, Abbey! Yes, the quilt die is amazing! I use it all the time. I really don't stress much on how the edges of the dimensional tapes looks on my shaker cards. I just try to use long stripes for the outside edges. I guess I'm assuming the card recipient will focus more on the fun shaker element and card front.

  2. I love that you turned this quilting die card into a shaker card Kristie! It is perfect and I am in love with it. Hugs, Brenda
