March Lori Whitlock Creative Team Blog Hop

Hi Everyone:
Welcome to the Lori Whitlock March blog hop.  You should have come here from  Kathy Skou's blog and will next be going to  Brandie Adams's blog.  I made this fun set of Shadow Box Sewing cards.  They can be found in a bundle here in Lori's store and here separately in the Silhouette Design store.  The first one on the left is called Shadow Box Card Scene Homemade and the middle one is called Shadow Box Card Scene Bobbin and the far right one is called Shadow Box Card Scene Sewing.  I used some fun Doodlebug papers to complete these projects.

This photo shows the card laying flat.

St. Patrick's Day Pop Up Box Card Jar Shaker Tutorial

Anita here with a tutorial to make Lori's lovely cut file for the Pop Up Box Card St. Patrick's Jar into a shaker card.  You can find this file here in her shop and here in the Silhouette store.
Here is a photo of the parts of the card after I cut them out.  I cut a piece of overhead projector plastic the same size as the jar.  I also used the rectangle shape tool to cut out the center of my green plaid jar top piece for the window.  I also cut a jar out of black and trimmed it even with the top of the band so that you could see the details in the jar cover.
Those are shown glued down in this photo.

Next, I took the jar outline piece and used foam tape to create both height and space for the shaker materials as you can see from the photo below.

I then started to assemble the card which is very easy to put together.  I tend to use a wet adhesive as at first it is forgiving and you can move the pieces around a bit and then it holds better than regular adhesive.  I lined up the pieces and then closed the card to make sure everything was where I wanted it.  Here are some photos of the card with the pieces ready to be adhered onto the card and with all the pieces on it.  I filled my shaker with extra shamrocks from the cut file and some sequins.  I love how festive it is.  

Lastly here is a photo of the card when it is closed.  Lori has many wonderful St. Patrick's Day files which you can whip up quickly to brighten someone's day.  Thanks for looking and have a great day.
