Shakers Gonna Shake (shake, shake, shake, shake) – Creating a Shaker Card with a Word Die

Shakers Gonna Shake

Day four of our shaker card tutorial week is here! Just wait until you see what is in store for today…

You’d think that we would run out of ideas after three days of shaker cards and instructional videos, but the fact of the matter is, we’re in this for the long haul. We’ve got more great inspiration coming to you today and tomorrow including more great prizes. And you just can’t beat that!

Today our Shakers Gonna Shake (shake, shake, shake, shake) series will focus on creating a shaker card with a word dies. If you’re anything like me, you have a collection of word dies that you go to again and again. With this tutorial, you’ll be able to use those dies in a brand new way.

Creating a Shaker Card with a Word Die

My Favorite Things Design Team member Stephanie Klauck took some time to create this super informative video giving lots of great tips and ideas for creating a shaker card with word dies. Click HERE or simply watch below!

If you’re wondering how Stephanie was able to space the three thank words that appear on the card, you can see that she used a T-square to get just the right placement. Oh, math. You can be so helpful!

As Stephanie said in the video, it’s important to be generous with your sequins and seed beads. When the card stands up, gravity will shake those beads and sequins down. {hey, science!}

Many thanks to Stephanie for taking the time to make two such great videos for us this week! You can see the one she did on Tuesday about creating a flat shaker card HERE.

    Fabulous! I am loving all these shaker ideas! Stephanie’s card is amazing today. I always find it hard to use a lot of sequins/beads, but I can see why you really need to after looking at her card.
