Hello Fall Shaker Cards // Card Creations

November 09, 2017

Hello crafty friends and welcome back! If you're new here, welcome! Please look around and let me know what you think! I have several tabs at the top so you can explore different types of projects! I have another card creation to share with you all today. As you know, I have been really in to making shaker cards and if you've been following along you probably won't be surprised that I have two more to share today!

If you want to get sneak peeks of future projects follow me on Instagram! I am posting sneak peeks, stories, and giveaways over there! These shaker cards are a smaller size that I am still getting used to. The card bases are made out of 110 lb cardstock from Core'dinations. The bases are cut to 7" x 5" and scored at 3 1/2".

Once the bases were cut and scored, I moved on to the next later. This layer is a beautiful piece of patterned paper from Craft Smith (found at Michael's) that I used a stitched rectangle die on. I purchased these dies from an overseas site and they work fairly well, however I would recommend purchasing stitched rectangle dies from your favorite stamp company. There are so many great ones out there and I'm looking forward to buying a larger set once I have some crafty cash. Let me know your favorite brand of stitched rectangle dies in the comments! I would like a set with lots of different sizes.

Once those layers were cut, I moved on to the shaker portion. I made this shaker card by using the same stitched rectangle die set. I first cut a background panel for the shaker out of dark brown cardstock. Once that back panel was cut, I wanted to add something more. I grabbed a background stamp that was given to me in a RAK that has a beautiful leaf pattern. I took the stamp and used Versamark Ink to prep it for embossing. I then used WOW! Gold Glitter Embossing powder to highlight the pattern. After setting it with my heat tool, I moved on to the sentiment. My sentiments for these cards are little labels from the same Craft Smith paper pad. Very easy to use and so cute!

I made the shaker front frame using two of the stitched rectangle dies and taped them together. Attempting to make them as equally spaced as possible and ran it through my Cuttlebug machine. I die cut two window pieces, one for each card. Once the frames were ready I started building the shaker window. The window is made out of leftover packaging from some scrappy supplies. I don't but acetate only since I like to reuse and re-purpose things that would otherwise go to waste. Once the plastic was in place, I built up the walls of the window by using foam squares. I find that these are very easy to use and place, as long as you don't mind peeling off all of the little backing pieces which can become quite tedious.

Once the window was ready it was time to add sequins! I used Sweater Weather sequins designed by Spiegel Mom Scraps for Wild Whisper Designs, Jillibean soup large pink sequins, and Darice brown and orange sequins. Using sequin packs like the one available from Wild Whisper helps build a solid base for a shaker card. I love to also mix in some other colors for a custom look. I adhered a couple of the sequins on the outside of the window once the whole card was put together. Ta-da! A beautiful and easy shaker card. Sometimes the shaker cards I see online look overly complicated, but if you give it a try, you'll see how fun they are! If you have any questions please let me know. I had a request for a video tutorial on shaker cards and will be filming one soon! I hope you enjoyed this project. Thanks for stopping by!
