Pumpkin Shaker Card // Card Creations

Hello friends and welcome back! I am sharing another simple Thanksgiving themed card with a huge shaker window. I have far too many sequins for my own good, so I should use more of them! A lot of different companies make sequin mixes, but I also enjoy mixing in some of my own. Let's dive right in to this card!


This is a larger than normal card for me which is 5" x 7" when folded. I decided to use 110 lb kraft cardstock as my base. I use the Joann's brand of heavy weight cardstock. I find it to be relatively inexpensive compared to other options that I have seen. Let me know what cardstock brands you prefer that are on the cheaper side. I'd love to try some new ones out.


My main patterned paper is from Craft Smith's autumnal paper pad that can be found at Michael's. This darling pattern is a beautiful red/orange with a light tan leaf pattern to add detail. I cut this piece to 4 3/4" x 6 3/4". I wanted to ensure that there would be a border around the edge of the shaker card. To create my shaker card, I used my largest Echo Park scalloped circle die to cut a piece for the window. Then, I added the acetate from some leftover packaging to the back of my window. Next, I used foam adhesive to create my shaker.


Once my foam adhesive was in place I got to add my sequins! I used Evergreen Bough from Spiegel Mom Scraps, white and brown sequins from Darice, and leaf green sequins from Jillibean Soup. This is a really fun combo of oranges and greens. I also like how the patterned paper is match-matchy with the sequins. I used a WPlus9 Stamp set for the fun little plaid pumpkin in the center of my card. I stamped it with Cajun Craze from Stampin' Up. I finished the shaker card sandwich using a piece of dark brown cardstock cut to slightly larger than the patterned paper panel.


Once all of the layers were firmly glued together, I continued decorating. I added some sequins on the outside of the card to keep the interest going past the shaker card. I also used a cute sentiment on the inside. Do you like to send out cards for Thanksgiving? I hope you enjoyed this autumnal themed card. I think autumn may be the shortest season, but I love the changing leaves and the brisk weather. Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I'd really like to see a video on how you made the shaker pocket, although I've probably seen some of your prior videos on this. Repetition can only help me.:)
