Star Fairy Shaker Card – Simply Creative Lavender Dreams


When I saw the new batch of Dovecraft Value Dies from +Trimcraft Ltd I knew I just had to have the Fairy die set.  This little set also includes some stars too and so a theme of stars teamed with my favourite purple colours was the inspiration for this Design Team card.  The Simply Creative Lavender Dreams papers have lots of purple shades and were perfect for this Star Fairy Shaker card.  I have positioned the fairy as if she is watching the top star whilst the other stars are falling from the sky, or perhaps she is just bathing in the starlight.

 Step By Step:
  1. Take a Dovecraft 6x6 White card with fold across top.  Cut Lavender Dreams pattern paper approx. 5.5” square and mat onto slightly larger square of purple paper (Dovecraft Colours pack) using d/s tape.  Adhere to card front.

  2. Die cut Repeat Pattern borders (FEDIE122) from white card and back with striped lavender Dreams paper using clear drying glue’.  Adhere borders across lower section of card.
  3. Create a star shaped shaker using the largest and 2nd largest dies in the nesting star dies set (FEDIE137X16) to create a star shaped frame.  I have cut frame again using Dovecraft Foam to create height (or you can use 3D foam pads). Add Dovecraft acetate on top of foam, trim to size and then adhere the Lavender Dreams paper frame on top.  

    Turn star shaker upside down and fill with silver and purple sequins and white glitter card stars cut using the Dovecraft Fairy die set). Adhere a star shaped backing to the shaker using card covered with Lavender Dreams paper to seal the shaker.  Attach shaker to card, with point to the top, using d/s tape and glue.
  4. Die cut a fairy (Dovecraft Value Dies) from white and purple glitter cards, using the purple to infill the wings. Glue Fairy to bottom left on shaker card.  Glue large star to top point.


    Use Simply Creative Silver alpha stickers to spell out ‘STAR’ and position to top left. 
    To finish decorate card with die cut stars and glitter dots.
