NEW Mini Shakers! Plus, Challenge 198 Shake a Little!

Hello, Ai Fans! We're back from Thanksgiving Break and we're ready and raring to go into a NEW challenge with NEW releases!

Rock and roll into our new release with MORE Mini Shaker clear stamps with matching dies! In addition to our Holiday Mini Shakers, we have three new character sets, perfect for birthdays or humorous cards! Each set includes one Mini Action Wobble to get you started, and you purchase additional Mini Action Wobble packs for multiple cards. If you missed our Stamp & Scrapbook Expo Latest and Greatest Video, check it out to see how these sets look in action! 

Diane is here to show us a fantastic tutorial using one of these super fun sets! Take it away, Diane!

Hello Ai friends!  I am sharing today how I made this Partial Die-Cut Z-Fold Card with the new Wheelie Mini Shaker (4794) stamp set.

The upper body and left leg on this guy are die cut and layered on a Mini Action Wobble. I know if I were on that skateboard, I would be super wobbly! Lol. The word "zoom" and the stars are dies which are also included in the set!
Here you can see the part of the image that wobbles...

With careful placement of the die, he hangs out over the fold.

To create my Partial Die-Cut Z-Fold Card, I started with a 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 piece of cardstock and scored it at the 4 1/4" mark.  Then I used a pencil to mark the top and bottom of the card front (to the left of the fold) at 2 1/8".

Next I positioned the die for his body so the left side of it, including his leg, was to the left of my pencil marks. It is held in place with low-tack tape.  Then I placed the top plate so the edge of the plate was in line with my pencil marks. (By doing so, the die will only cut the area underneath the top plate.  Now run it through the machine.

The die cut area will be cut as shown below. I then scored at the 2 1/8" mark, above and below the cut.

Mountain and Valley fold your card and the base will look like this.

Add layers, your image with the Action Wobble, and embellish as desired.

Now it’s your turn to make a card and join us in the “Shake A Little” Challenge!
Happy stamping!

Thanks, Diane! This card is just perfect for that special guy's birthday!
