Creating a Peek-a-Boo Shaker Card

My Favorite Things Design Team member Kimberly Crawford is back again today with tips and tricks of the trade for making your very own peek-a-boo shaker card. Click HERE or simply watch below!

Wasn’t that tip for “deadening” the adhesive awesome? Baby powder — it’s not just for babies anymore!

You're Fin-tastic Shaker Card from Kimberly Crawford featuring the DC You're Fin-tastic stamp set and Fishbowl Die-namicsI love how Kimberly chose various sizes of sequins and beads that look like water and bubbles to further her fishbowl theme. Little details like that can make your card even more cohesive and special.

    I love that fishbowl card, it’s incredibly cute. I also like the beads and sequins she chose to be the bubbles. What a great series; it inspired me to make graduation shaker cards yesterday. I even used the sequins in the school colors of the graduates.
