Please don’t let the Shaker Card in the title throw you off! I have never been a huge fan of the cards. They are pretty, but at least for me, very messy to make. And they end up pretty thick due to the “shaker” part.
Over the weekend Stampin’ Up! had our Annual Convention AT HOME! It was Awesome!!! I missed seeing all my friends, but the comfort of my home was great. We still got to see New Products and watch presentations with them. And that is where the new and easy shaker card came from. Rosie Gonzales, I hope I spelled that correctly, from California made this card to share. I was hooked!!
It was really difficult to get a picture of this card due to all the shine. And be one the lookout for other demonstrators sharing this new idea. There were over 10,000 demonstrators online for this event.
The basics of this card is cutting a piece of DSP that would be the top layer of your card. I used this leafy piece from Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper. You then place the DSP inside a Clear Envelope. Add your shaker / sprinkles/ glitter. Get the DSP against the bottom and end of the envelope and remove the tape cover on the envelope and secure it tightly. Use scotch tape to fold over the upper section that is empty. Now all of your “shaker” material is enclosed in the clear envelope!
To finish the card, create your other layers and simple add Tear & Tape around the back edges of the shaker part. Adhere it to the rest of the card and you are finished! I added my ribbon before I adhered the shaker to the other layers. My finishing touch was simply to add the sentiment and punched with the Classic Label Punch. So easy!!!
I hope you enjoyed this quick shaker card and will give it a try yourself.
