2018 Happy New Year Shaker Card

2018 Happy New Year Shaker Card by Margie Higuchi for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Happy New Year, friends! I wanted to bring in the new year with some sparkle so why not do it with a shaker feature?! It is so simple with Keepsake Envelopes so let’s get started.

Give 2018 a Shake!

To make the card base, die-cut a square on an A2 (4.25 x 5.5 in) size card front to create a window. To add sparkle, place Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4 in. at the bottom of the card (make sure you have enough space for a sentiment – I used the stamp as a guide) and leave the liner on. Stamp sentiment in black ink.

Remove the liner from the Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4 in., pour gold glitter on top and push the glitter into the tape. Tap off excess and you have a beautiful glittery border! Set aside.

Let’s work on the shaker feature – it’s SO EASY! Cut patterned paper to fit inside a large Keepsake Envelope. Add sequins inside (and in front of patterned paper). Take the liner off from the front of the envelope and close the flap.

Now to attach the shaker to the card base by applying the E-Z Runner® Micro Refillable Dispenser close to the edge of the window as possible. Curl the ends of the shaker liner together to make a “handle” for easy placement over the window. DO NOT REMOVE THE LINER YET because you’ll use it to push the edges together for a secure hold.

Not sure if you can see the white liner on the edge so I took two different images.

Next, we need to cover up the shaker from the inside of the card. So apply E-Z Runner® Grand Dispenser Permanent Strips on edges of the white cardstock piece that is trimmed 4.25 x 5.5 in. Remove liner of Keepsake Envelope and place white cardstock over to cover the entire side.

A Shiny New Year!

Let’s get creative with the card front and start with the 2018 dimensional die cuts. By trimming the 3D Foam Creative Sheet from the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit, I can see where to place them on the steel rule dies.

After die-cutting them, I peeled off the back liner and place them on top of the shaker window.

Next, take off the top liner of the first number only and place the gold foil over it (shiny side UP) and rub gently. As a result, you are transferring the foil onto your die-cut. Repeat with each number.

Finally, add sequins to the corners of the card base using a combination of Adhesive Dots Mini and Adhesive Dots Small. Here’s a second look…
