Check out this easy way to make a shaker card – it’s brilliant!
We love this adorable winter shaker card from Julie and think it’s so cute that with a simple sentiment swap it could be an ideal holiday card for someone special. And even though it features this trending interactive element, you COULD batch make these using Julie’s easy way to make a shaker card that you will want to use all the time. Let’s get the details!
First, Julie made a white card base and then cut a piece of the paper from our Wintery Woodlands 6 X 6 Paper Pad with the largest die from our Inside Scallop Frame die and adhered it to her card base. Julie also used one of the dies from this set to cut her frame from a tan colored card stock that coordinated with her patterned paper. She set this aside to create her characters.
Julie stamped the critters from our Wintery Friends (the polar bear and fox) and Christmas Inchies (the teddy bear and penguin), colored them in with her Copic markers and then cut them out with our coordinating dies.
Here are the marker colors she used for everyone except the fox:
And here’s what she used on the fox:
For her shaker element, Julie used a very clever trick to create it and if you wanted to batch make a shaker card, this is the perfect solution! She took a cello bag that she’d cut her frame to fit, added some large glitter mix into it and sealed it shut. Voila! “Instant” shaker element! Is that not SO smart?
Now Julie assembled her card by adhering her cello packet to the center of the front of her card, adhered her frame over it with some foam tape adhesive and then tucked her little characters into the frame. She stamped her greeting onto a scrap of card stock, trimmed it down and popped that on the card. As a final touch, she added a teeny bit more sparkle to the scarves on all the little critters and this card was ready to go!
Is that not both one of the cutest and best easy way to make a shaker card? The idea is so clever and if you wanted to win the Card Sending Cuteness of the year, you really could make a stack of these as your holiday cards! We are thinking this could be a shaker card making game changer!
