Sentiment Shaker Cards with Stenciled Backgrounds

Shaker cards are my favorite interactive cards to make! They are super easy and once you make a few they come together rather quickly. Today, I am sharing two different shaker cards both with the shaker components being the sentiments on the card. You can watch the video tutorial below to see how I put both cards together!

Shaker cards are fun, but there are times when I’m not quite sure what to do with the backgrounds. Stencils are my go to now! They are a super simple and quick way to add so much interest to any card design that needs a little something extra.

Using sentiments as the shaker portion is a great way to create custom cards. I LOVE to use alphabet dies and cut out the recipients name. For my first card I made a quick monochromatic birthday card with MOM cut out. And I used one of my favorite stencils, Plaid Fringe from The Crafter’s Workshop. This is my new go to!

My second card is using a traditional sentiment die, from Altenew. This is another favorite. Be sure to check out my tips and tricks in the video above on how to put this shaker together! I used another favorite stencil of mine from The Crafter’s Workshop, Spanish Tile, but I went up to the 12 x 12 size for a larger, bolder pattern.

For both of my cards I used sequin mixes from Buttons Galore & More. These sequin mixes are so fun! I especially love the Coffee sequin mix. It has sequins that have a pattern on them!! Here’s a closer look!!


These cards are so easy to make and shaker cards always seem to leave my stash first! I hope you all enjoyed the video today and found a few tips and tricks that you found helpful!
