Hello! It’s Amy here with a Shaker Card. I know that the shaker rage has been around for awhile but I still get comments from people that they want to try making them. I think that I’ve made more in the last year than I ever have.
Would you be able to guess what I used for the shaker adhesive?
Crafty Foam Tape in black! I love a good challenge and wanted to see if I could actually use the black on a white card. Let’s get to the basics of how I put my card together. I started off with the scalloped die cut frame.I used the E-Z Runner® Grand Dispenser to adhere the acetate panel to the die cut frame.
Next up is the Crafty Foam Tape:
I’m a frugal adhesive user. What does that mean? Well, I literally snip the Crafty Foam Tape to the length that I want it and then divide that strip into thirds.
Cutting it that way makes so that it doesn’t show up in my project. The beauty of the Crafty Foam Tape is that it HOLDS the shape. I’ve used a bunch of different adhesive and not many can stand up to being cut that narrow and not becoming deformed.
The next step is the shaker contents. I pile them onto the base panel.
Then I position the frame die cut to where I want it to be situated. When that has been completed. I finish off the panel with any other embellishments. I decided to top off my card with some crinkle ribbon.
I used the E-Z Runner® Grand Dispenser to adhere the panel to my card base.
There you go! I hope for those of you that haven’t designed a shaker card yet, that this might be the inspiration that you need. They really are pretty easy to make and they packed so much of a punch. It is always fun finding the perfect shaker mix to compliment your design.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

This is so pretty!!! Love the shaker card and how you put it in the corner of the card instead of making it the WHOLE card. Great design!

So…first of all… just beautiful… gorgeous… lovely… makes my eyes go all wowzy… idk… couldn’t find a proper word to describe it… secondly… can I tell you how happy it makes me to see the underbelly of your shaker which looks so much like mine do and I thought I was a loser but I can’t be a loser if it looks like yours because you are definitely a winner 🙂 … AND I think I need some of this foam tape now because yes… I cut it thin and then it deforms and sticks to my non-stick scissors and I get angry… and creating shouldn’t make you angry… so #amymademebuyit … just sayin

So pretty Amy! I so love everything about this card, shaker, seahorse and the color. Great to know know about this tape, I would’ve never dared to use black on white paper but yours looks great. Thanks for sharing and inspiring.

You’re right, Amy, I would not have guessed you used black foam tape on your white card. Beautiful shaker card, Amy. ♡

Amazing card, Amy! I Love the sketch, beautiful colors and matching crinkle ribbon in your card. Shaker cards are dynamic and fun to make, love them! Love that you dared to use black foam tape in a white card… it doesn’t show, but gives a darker shadow that leave others thinking “how did she do that?”… cool :)!
