Today’s Craft – Spectacular Shakers

Shaker cards provide so much opportunity for getting creative with filler material and background work! Adding stamped images to the shaker backer adds intrigue — every shake offers a new combination of background and shaker material…you’re recipient is in for hours of entertainment! Adding in small die cuts with your beads and sequins carries the theme throughout your project.

    Love the striking simplicity of this design. The scoring and pops of orange really make the difference.

    What an adorable shaker card! I love the porthole and the anchors in with the sequins! And a “fish tail” banner for your sea-themed card? Perfect! I also like the added orange color of the octopus, anchors and envelope that is different from the usual all blue sea-themed cards

    Very cute card!Thank you for the video and the tips!The fun foam seems the way forward!I don’t make shaker cards often cause I never used to like trying to curl the tape around the windows and then having everything getting stuck at the side of the tape!But now I am tempted to try this method, seems alot easier and trouble free! 🙂

    Thanks for these tutorials. I’ve been stepping out into new territory. Question. How much filling do you put inside ? I either do too little or too much 🙂
