Needle and Thread Shaker Card

Yesterday I realised I literally have so much to share with you that I simply *have* to get my behind into gear and blog some of my makes - so here I am! Lol!
I really love this little card, it's a shaker card (something I haven't made one of for ages) but it's a flatter version using vellum and the fab-u-lous stitched rectangle dies, I have already used these so much!
I added a stack of the flowers from the Needle and Thread stamp set in the corner of the frame.
TIP: To get a great image with these clever distinktive stamps you need a light covering of ink on them. Simply press the ink back into your pad (using a bone folder or the back of a spoon) before inking the stamp like usual.
I chose vellum for this shaker front so I could use the stitched effect background die from the Needlepoint dies (available in the Needle and Thread bundle, saving 10%) on it. It's so pretty IRL and I do hope you can see it here.
I used some (retired) sequin and pearl mix from my stash. They are small and mostly flat so perfect for this style of flatter shaker - you could use some of the current iridescent sequins though.
I added a twist of old olive twine, which I can't seem to get enough of either right now, it just seems to work perfectly on everything!
OK, so that's all from me for today and I'll definitely be back tomorrow with another of my many makes!
Thanks for looking today :-)
