First Edition 8x8 Love story papers, torn edge dies, movie dies, Boutique dies, A4 foam

How to make

1.  Cut two 14cm squares of foam, and then die cut 4 of the smallest torn edge dies on your foam to make a four panelled window. 

TIP  Cut 4 of the torn edge dies onto scrap paper, then place on the foam to act as a template to make your window shape. Secure your template with washi tape to ensure your die cuts remain symmetrical.

2.  Cut a 14.5cm square from the Love Story paper pad, place on to your die cut foam and with a pencil, make a mark in each corner of where you will have your die cut shape so that your die cut correlates with your foam.

3.  Place the torn edge die on your paper, use the marks you have made to line up the torn edge die and cut the four squares. Adhere a piece of 14cm square acetate to the back of the paper.

4.  Cut a 15cm square of Love Story paper to match your first piece and glue this to your card blank, adhere the foam to the card.

5.  Die cut a selection of the stars and shoes from the First Edition die sets, place into the squares of foam. Add some buttons and sequins to the other squares to add colour and sparkle.

TIP You can personalise your card for a range of occasions, just use different die cuts to achieve a new them!

6.   Adhere the acetate and backing paper to the top of the foam using double sided tape, ensuring it is sealed all the way around your foam squares to hold your embellishments.

7.  Die cut some stars and shoes to decorate the top of the shaker card.

8.  Stamp the ‘Happy birthday’ sentiment on white card stock, cut out and mount onto a slightly bigger piece of  glitter card, adhere to the centre of the card.
