Fun Ways to Use Polymer Clay Sprinkles in Card Making

There are so many ways to use your handmade polymer clay sprinkles, not just in cardmaking, but in all sorts of crafts! I am primarily a card maker, so that is how I’m using my polymer clay sprinkles today. Keep reading below and see a few fun ways I like to use polymer clay sprinkles.

Use Polymer Clay Sprinkles to Make Shaker Cards

Shaker cards are so much fun! They are the first handmade cards my kids reach for when searching for a card for their friends because they’re just so fun and interactive! When I make a shaker card, I really love to fill them up nice and full and one of my favorite additives is polymer clay sprinkles. Making polymer clay sprinkles myself, I can make quite a few so I can really fill up my cards!

By using your DIY polymer clay sprinkles, you can also create your own custom mixes, like I did in the card above. This ice cream cone birthday shaker card is sure to go fast!

Use Polymer Clay Sprinkles in Different Mediums

When I made my shaker card, I had a leftover ice cream cone and instead of letting it go to waste, I decided to make it into another quick and easy birthday card.

Another way I like to use my polymer clay sprinkles to adding them to mediums. This can add great texture to your handmade cards. I love adding light and fluffy modeling paste to the top of my paper ice cream cones and cupcakes and then adding polymer clay sprinkles to the top. You can also mix them into different mediums and apply to your handmade cards!


The SVG Files I Used on My Handmade Cards

To make my cards today, I used two different SVG cut files that I designed. I love creating entire card fronts, but buying individual coverplate dies gets expensive FAST! I invested in an electronic cutting machine a few months ago and I have been enjoying creating my own “cover” cut files to fill my card fronts. I used two different designs today, and I have put them into sets that are available in my Etsy shop at a fraction of the price of a coverplate die. Here’s what the sets looks like. Just click the photos to shop!

This sentiment card front set is one of my favorites these days! Its so easy to make a quick card. Use them as shaker fronts, like I did today, or add a colorful ink blended or stenciled background and simply adhere these on top!

I also used this birthday themed card front set to create two of my cards! This is another fun one that makes quick cards. Just click the photos above to shop these SVG cut file sets!
