Technique Tuesday – Shaker Card!!!

Happy Tuesday!!! You know what that means – I have a fabulous technique to share with you!!! This week I am showing you how to make a fabulous Shaker Card with Emboss!

How cute is that? I’m loving the bling (even though honestly, I’m more of a silver girl)!

Supplies Needed: Washi Tape, Cardstock, Window Sheet, Shaker items like glitter, punched circles or flower, etc, or sequins

You will need to cut your cardstock and Window Sheet to be the same size! This card is a 3″ Square! Then you will lay your 2 squares together and add Washi Tape (Watercolor Wonder Washi Tape) along the edges half way so that the other half can fold over to the back (holding your 2 pieces together). Trim off an access on the corner. Before putting Washi Tape on the 4th side, be sure to add in your shaker items. For this card, I placed Washi Tape on a scrap piece of Very Vanilla and then punched out 1/2″ Circles. You can use anything as your shaker items – punched circles, hearts, flowers, glitter, sequins, etc. After your shaker items are in there, you will seal up the final side with Washi Tape. Then you can put it on your card and decorate as you wish! As for the greeting, you can either stamp on your cardstock that is layered behind the Window Sheet or you can use Stazon and stamp on the window sheet or you can emboss a greeting onto the window sheet! I took the easy, quick drying route and stamped on my cardstock! 🙂

Once you have created your shaker piece, you can put it on your decorated card! For the one pictured above, I used Coastal Cabana and Whisper White Cardstock. I embossed the Whisper White with my Stripes Embossing Folder and added little banner tags! The banner tags were created with the Gold Fancy Foil Designer Vellum and Sequin trim! The stamp set I used for my greeting was Delightful Dozens (this one is retiring so get it before it is gone)! To watch a video tutorial on this technique, click here!

Happy Stampin’
