Welcome, today’s card is all about creating cards that can be used for everyday cardmaking. Which makes this set very versatile and offer a lot more bang for your buck. As a matter of fact, when shopping for craft goods nothing speaks volumes that being able to use the product in unintended ways. This I-crafter die allows you to do just that.
To make this card I used the February release called “Pegboard Shelfie” and it’s by Lynda Kanase. First, take a thin piece of balsa wood and die cut the peg board. Next, to add some depth I inked the edges using some oil pastels. Simply rub the oil pastel along the edges to add some extra depth to the peg board.
Next, die cut the additional elements in the set. Take the set to make a sort of wire shelf that holds some plants which is from the peg board set itself. Now die cut the shelves using silver foil paper to bring out the detail. Use your Copic pens to add additional color to give the greenery in the set a life-like look.
To complete the look of my card I matted the peg board to a piece of teal patterned paper. Next I adhered it on top of a pink piece of 5×7 card stock.
A variety of greenery is included along with a fun picture holder and you even get some words and funky shaped vases. I absolutely love it. So, if variety is what you are looking for then this is the set for you.
If you are looking to create a birthday card for the man in your life this set would work beautifully. You can create a masculine look or dress it up to be more girly and even make it a fun card for a baby shower. You can use this set to make invitations for a housewarming party. Simply change up the colors add a bit more detail and voila! I hope everyone has enjoyed my post for the day and be sure to stop by often for more inspiration from our design team.

Fantastic card! I really love it! I especially like all the cute accessories for the pegboard, oh that lamp! I want to make it into a crafters pegboard because I just bought a used one for myself but I haven’t set it up yet. I’m curious because you didn’t mention how you made the white planter box for the grouping of plants on the left side of the card/pegboard?
Well done, thank you for the great inspiration! I can’t wait to see what else is in this release! ❤️
Hi Carol – Thank you for the sweet comments. The white “planter” on the card front is from the Impossible Box Valentine Add on set. You can see it here: https://i-crafter.com/product/impossible-box-valentine-add-on/?wpam_id=3. You can add a bit of foam adhesive to give it added dimension. We think this is such a cute way to rethink ways to use your dies.
We especially love the large “planter” on this card. Decorate your shelfie any way you wish!
Just proving these dies will cut anything!! Very cool use of materials!!
