Hi Queen and Co fans! Rebecca Keppel here with two more birthday shaker cards made with the Queen and Co. June kit, Pretty Presents. I decided to make some unique backgrounds for these cards. For the first I used leftover scrap strips from the 6x6 Pretty Presents mat stack.
First I covered a 4.25 x 5.5 inch piece of white cardstock with a thin double sided adhesive. (I use Therm O Web Easy Cut sheets). Then lay the 6 inch strips of patterned paper diagonally across the card base. Once all the adhesive is covered simply flip the whole thing over and either use a trimmer or scissors to cut off the extra. Then cut the shaped shaker out of glitter cardstock. I love the way the glitter stands out on the fun patterned background.
For the second card, I used one of the sentiment greetings from the kit stamps set to make my background.
I grabbed three ink colors that coordinated with the patterned papers from the Pretty Presents mat stack and stamped one greeting multiple times in each of the colors.
Then I die cut three shaped shakers from the 3 coordinating pattern colors I chose.
Of course the mat stack and plain white cardstock make great backgrounds for the June Kit, but I had fun mixing up my backgrounds for these cards! This is also a great way to stretch your kit and use up scraps too!
