I have said it before, shaker cards are some of my favorite cards to give! They are especially helpful to have in your stash for those “hard to create for” age groups (teenagers). This card is one of those cards! Be sure to watch the video below for all the details!!
Some supplies used in the video above were sent to me free of charge for design purposes. I only ever design for companies I can stand behind 100%!! To see who I currently or have previously designed for head HERE.
To start with this card you need a card base (A2) and another A2 sized cardstock panel. Then with a die, I used an oval but a circle, rectangle, etc. will work, cut the center out of both the panel and the card base. I like to line up the card base and panel on top of one another and die cut both at the same time so they are perfectly even!
The next stamp is the stamping and coloring, but unlike other cards, you want to stamp on the inside of the card base. Using the large donut from the Sprinkled with Love stamp set, stamp the inside of the card base. Some of the stamps will overhand the sides. Use whatever ink will play nicely with your coloring medium! Then color! I used colored pencils to color in just where the opening is, but you can color as much or as little as you want.
This next step is totally optional, but I really like the look of adding a frame. You can use ANY nesting die set to create a frame. Using the same die that you die cut your opening and one slightly larger, tape them together with the larger die on the outside and the smaller inlaid inside. Then you can cut as many frames as you want and they will be exactly the same! I die cut two frames, one for the outside and the second for the inside to highlight the colored portion.
The last step before putting the shaker together is to do any stamping on the outside that you may want. I used the “You’re Sweet” sentiment and stamped it onto the acetate with Staz On Pigment ink.
Finally, it’s time to put everything together. Add acetate to the back of the panel and the front of the card base. Be sure the acetate is large enough to cover the opening fully. On the card base, add foam adhesive taking care to be sure the ends are touching and NO GAPS are left. Finally, add your shaker bits (I used White Sprinkles) and then lay the panel over the base to lock everything into place!
