Cupcake Cutie - Madison Avenue Shaker Card Tutorial

Well here I am back with your first Shaker Card for the week.
First of all I cut the base card in white 15cm x 22.5cm and folded in half
I have cut the pink one 14.5cm x 10.7 cm this is a mat for the front of the card

This is a die called Madison Avenue from Mama Elephant and
I have cut 1.

I have then cut the inside of the shaker paper at 13cm x 9.5 cm
plastic/acetate  cut at 13cm x 9.5cm

I have then taped the mat to the front of the card.

This is a bit hard to see but I have taped the plastic/acetate to the frame.

I have then used Scotch Mounting tape or you could use X-press It Mounting Tape
on the plastic side. I have then ran around the inside of the tape and  on the plastic
with my anti static tool and it will stop your sequins sticking to the foam.
Make sure all your mounting tape touches the next bit otherwise your sequins will get out.

I have added sequins in the colour I wanted and the amount into the shaker.
I have then peeled the backing tape of the mounting foam and placed the backing paper
on it just remember the pretty side of your paper has to be face down.

So it looks like this.

I then taped the back of the shaker and taped it to the 
card base.

So it looks like this.

Then to decorate.

I have use Cupcake Cutie my new favorite stamp from My Favorite Things

I have used Wink of Stella on the Balloons and Happy Birthday
