Spring Shaker Wreath
Spring Wildflowers Make-a-Wreath 
SVG Cutz Mega Kit
Card by Val

LeighSBDesigner Val is here today to inspire you with her wonderful Spring Shaker Wreath card featuring the Spring Wildflowers Make-a-Wreath SVG Cutz Mega Kit!
 

The Spring Wildflowers Make-a-Wreath SVG Cutz Mega Kit set is fabulous versatile 42 piece mega kit that includes everything you need to create incredible 3D twig wreaths in various styles and sizes from fully assembled bunny shaped wreaths, bunny and traditional round wreaths to a wonderful bouquet of pretty wildflowers and a variety of floral greenery and a multi-layered bow to decorate them with.
 
 
For all her SVG Cutz cutting Val uses her Silhouette Portrait 3 electronic cutting machine and from the SVG Cutz mega kit she cut out the smaller round Twig Wreath from white cardstock and and the matching mat layer from light green cardstock.  She coloured the Twig Wreathit with a brown Promarker and a applied a darker Distress Oxide green ink to the edges of the mat layer.  She then cut a round piece of clear acetate and adhered it to the back of the Wreath.
  
Next she cut out the Spring Wildflowers from white cardstock and all the Bow layers from green cardstock.  She used Promarkers to colour the Spring Wildflowers in different colours and the layered flower pieces in shades of green with white gel pen details.  She applied Distress Oxide green ink to the edges of the Bow layers and added green Promarker detailing.  She then curled the layers of the Bow and the Flower as she assembled them to give them dimension then applied Crystal Stickles glitter for a touch of pretty sparkle.
 
 
When she cut out Twig Wreath it left a ready made aperture in the cardstock left behind on her cutting mat which was the perfect size to use as the aperture panel for her shaker card.  She cut the panel the same size as her top fold base card and coloured the panel with green Distress Oxide ink then adhered the assembled Wreath over the aperture to frame it.  She then rubber stamped the words "Spring" and "Easter" onto the panel with black ink.
 
 She then applied foam tape around the outer edges and the aperture opening on the back of the Shaker panel.  For her shaker contents she used an assortment of beads and all the pretty Spring Widlflower cut pieces which she then laid in the middle of the front of the folded card base and adhered the Shaker panel on top sealing in the shaker pieces.  She then completed her Spring Shaker Wreath card by adhering the layered 3D Bow, 3D Flower and two fussy cut rubber stamped Easter Eggs, she coloured with Promarkers, in place with foam tape for lots of fun dimension.

Cherry Blossom Cut-In Card Topper
Slimline SVG Cutz
Scented Shaker Card Tutorial
with Leigh

Shaker cards are so much fun and my new Cherry Blossom Cut-In Card Topper SVG Cutz sets for electronic cutting machines, like Cricut and Silhouette, etc, paired up with your favourite decorative papers and mixed media backgrounds are perfect for making stunning shakers!
 
 
Today I've got an elegant slimline shaker card with multiple shaker sections featuring my new Cherry Blossom Cut-In Slimline Card Topper SVG Cutz set to inspire you.  The beautiful floral cut-in design is perfect for making both vertical and horizontal slimline cards with the included overlay, mats and layers or take them to the next level and make shaker cards!
 

 The 5 piece Cherry Blossom Cut-In Slimline Card Topper SVG Cutz set includes everything you need to make a fabulous layered topper for your card fronts and more.  The top overlay has a wonderful cut-in Cherry Blossom design of 4 flowers in various sizes and a mat layer that lets you customize the colour of the flowers.  The set also includes 3 concentric mat layers to complete your card fronts.
 
 
Using my Silhouette Cameo 5 and Electrostatic Mat I first cut out the beautiful stylized Cherry Blossom cut-in overlay panel from a vintage shabby chic floral patterned paper.  I then applied Crafter's Companion gold glitter glue to the edges of the panel and all the flower stamens.
 
 
Instead of the traditional clear acetate I backed the front overlay panel of my shaker with white vellum and used the backing mat layer included in the SVG Cutz set to cut out the vellum panel.
 
 
To make this shaker slimline card even more dramatic I turned all 4 of the flower openings into shakers instead of the entire card front where the shaker contents end up puddled at the bottom!
 
 
I first framed the entire panel with narrow foam tape then added foam tape strips around each flower.  Next I cut a second panel of vellum and dry fit it so I could map out the flower areas and cut out the pieces to seal and contain the shaker contents in each flower section.  This also left the circle cut-ins open so the flowers have a more muted shade and the circles remain the true colour of the background panel which I cut from a sheet of peach cardstock using the mat layer included in the set.
 
 
How can your shaker cards get any better?  How about making SCENTED shaker cards!!!!
I filled my shaker flowers with scented pink and white powders which I mixed with crystal glitter to make my shaker card not only look good it SMELLS good too!!!!!  How cool and clever is that!!!!
I don't think I've seen anyone do this so remember you saw it here first, wink wink!
 

 
To complete my card I made a folded 4" x 9" inch slimline card base from heavy weight white cardstock.
 
You can see the Cherry Blossom Cut-In Slimline Card Topper SVG Cutz set makes gorgeous vertical and horizontal slimline cards and even more gorgeous shaker cards!  I hope you'll add this SVG Cutz set for electronic cutting machines to your collection along with all the wonderful designs in my new Windows to Spring Collection!

"Birthday"
Party Puss Loveleigh Kitty
Card by Val

 
LeighSBDesigner Val is here today to inspire you with her PURRtastic fancy fold Birthday Card featuring my new Party Puss Loveleigh Kitty.
 
 
The Val printed Party Puss Loveleigh Kitty out onto white cardstock suitable for alcohol markers and coloured him up with Promarkers and Sakura glitter pens for lots of fun party sparkle and then fussy cut him out.
 

She constructed her fancy fold card from decorative cardstock and mounted Party Puss onto the center panel with foam tape.  The "Birthday" stamp is from Crafter's Companion 2023 Advent Calendar which she stamped twice in black ink to frame the kitty.  To complete her card she embellished both side panels with turquoise self adhesive pearls.
