Using Scrap Die Cuts for a Shaker Card

I had more of the alcohol ink backgrounds that I hadn’t used, so I used feather dies from Simon Says Stamp that someone had given me (I apologize that I forgot!) I cut several feathers and laid them using tape runner on another alcohol ink background that I had made.  I used a 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ card base in green and added a the alcohol ink background cut to 5 1/4 x 4″ and after laying feathers on it, attached a die cut of fun foam to it.  I put 1/8″ tear tape on the fun foam and laid a piece of plastic (from a stamp set) to the front after filling the inside with small beads and confetti from Hobby Lobby that looks like sequins but doesn’t have the holes in it.  I made a green piece that was 5 1/4 x 4″ with the same size die centered on it that I used for the fun foam.  Then I took a die that was one size smaller and a piece of another color green card stock that was 5″x 3 3/4″ and attached the smaller green piece on top of my plastic.  Then I took my sentiment that I cut on the smallest size dies from the set from Aliexpress that were $1.49 for the set.  Here’s the link where I found it.

I layered the sentiment on a light orange color onto a green die cut the next size bigger.  I took orange ribbon and wrapped around the sentiment and used tape runner to attach it.  I wrapped the same ribbon around the envelope after putting tear tape on the back of the ribbon.
