Alternative Use for Pop Up Die ~ Sea Siren

Have you ever purchased a beautiful die, only to find you really couldn't figure out exactly how it was meant to be used?  We're all creative enough to make it work, but it's pretty frustrating sometimes when you search and come up with zero uses.  
That was my experience with this beautiful Couture Sea Siren Die that I purchased from Create & Craft.  It's suppose to be a pop up die, but it just wasn't POPPING for me no matter what....
so off to my box of shaker fillers to get the small sea shells that are almost an identical match, and let's make a shaker card!

 This is another example using the Jennifer McQuire Tulle window shaker card.  The die shape was cut through the mat and top layer of the card.  Double sided tape around the edges, then Tulle added on top of the top of the card, followed by shaker ingredients and the second or folded piece of tulle.  Press down firmly all he way around. Add the top matting and finish with the actual Sea Siren die cut out of a metallic pearl card stock.  

If you have this die in your collection, how did you use it?

Thank you for stopping by today ~ may your day be blessed!

  1. This is a very clever way of using this die. Love the shaker idea. The seashells inside glisten like mother of pearl shells. Adorable card. I do have this die but l have only used it as a pop up in the inside of the card. My just popped, yours POPS with color.

  2. Love the card. I have just started buying dies, but have avoided ones that say pop up. First of all I didn't understand what they meant and next I did't know how I would use it. But this is lovely.

  3. What a beautiful use of the die Pam, and a great shaker element :-)
