[Spellbinders] New Classics March Collection- Part I- Making shaker cards with basic frame dies

Hello, everyone ! 
Hope you are having a good day. Did you see the gorgeous new release at Spellbinders?
I'm so thrilled to let you know that I was invited to Spellbinders as a guest designer for Spellbinders Classics March Collection  last week.  I shared a total of three posts featuring the Classics March Collection on the Spellbinders Blog and I'm going to replay them again here on my blog during this week. Hope you will enjoy them :) 

As you all have seen, the Spellbinders Classics March Collection is full of basic frame dies with various striped, dotted or scalloped borders, which would be perfect background frames for your projects. But that’s not all they do. From now on, I’ll be sharing how to use creatively the classical frames throughout 3 days of posts here on Spellbinder’s blog.
Today’s topic is making beautiful shaker cards with the nested frame dies. Basically, I used first (the largest) and second die cuts as background layer, then I cut the two consecutive smaller dies at the same time to make a frame for shaker window. Here is the first card with oval framed shaker made using the Fancy Edged Ovals Dies.

For the bottom rectangle panel, I also used a largest frame die from Scored and Pierced Rectangles Dies. Sentiment ‘for you’ is from the Sentiment 2 Set from Tammy Tutterow, and was heat-embossed with gold embossing powder. As a final embellishment, I adhered a white linen ribbon on the top of the oval frame, and put some Jewels on the card.

For the shaker, I chose various colors of sequins and seed beads trying to balance the whole color scheme. Look at the beautiful sequins in the elegant framed shakers. I really loved how it turned out.

For my second card, I made a square –shaped shaker using Fancy Edged Squares Dies set in a similar way I already described above. 

For my third card, I made a rectangle shaker using Fancy Edged Rectangles Dies set.

Low how the elegant frames go well with beautiful sequins and jewels.
