Shaking up with a Shaker Card

I love to shake things up! Well, maybe not in my life, but definitely with my cards! I adore shaker cards. Do you also love them? I think I love them so much because I have a deep affection for anything that sparkles. Shaker cards can have sparkle. Lots and lots of sparkle. That makes me so happy.

I was inspired to make shaker cards because Stampin’ Up! now has Foam Adhesive Strips available in its catalog. These strips make creating shaker cards so incredibly easy. You’ll also need Window Sheets. That’s it! No other specialty items needed.

Creating shaker cards is not hard. Trust me, if I can do it, anyone can do it. But as I went through the process, I realized there were some steps that needed to be done in a certain order to make sure the project was successful. I therefore created a free pdf you can download that lists each of the steps. Click here to download it.

The video below also takes you through each step of the process. I show you some tips. I also showed you a trick I used when I didn’t have a supply I needed! That happens to all of us sometimes, doesn’t it? I hope you enjoy the video and that you make your own shaker card!

Tips for Creating a Shaker card:

  • When creating a shaker card, one of the most important tips I can share is that you should stamp the front of your card before you put the adhesive strip on the back of card (see video). This will keep your stamping lookin’ great.
  • You can use anything that you can imagine to fill the shaker card. Even candy! Though no one will want to destroy the card to get it out J Other ideas are sequins, glitter, beads, buttons, hardware, dried flowers, little bits of paper. Anything!
  • You may want to make two cards while you’re at it, because you’ll have a hard time giving your shaker card away. Trust me on this one!
