Shaker bridge fold card - with "Through the Trees" from Craft Consortium

 I always like to add a little something to my cards for DT projects. With this Bridge fold cardI added a centre shaker element, because I love them! 



The base measure 10 1/4 x 5 3/4, scored at 1 1/2 and 3" on the long side fom each end. The front bar in 7 1/4 x 1 1/4".

I chose to make the layers 1/4" smaller for contrasting layer and the only 1/8" smaller for the design paper in each direction.

To make the shaker element, I used a nesting die fron crafters Companion from my stash, measuring 4 1/2 x 3 outside and cut an acetate layer almost the same size so it does not show. popped these up on foam strip and added sequins .

I hope you like my twist on a favourite style of card.

Craft Consortium Products used

Through the Trees 6 x6  and 12 x 12 Premium Paper pads

I added rhinestones but co-ordinating enamel dots are now available and would work better as an embellishment.


CC products are available from their website at https://www.Craftconsortium.com


Come back soon,
