Hi everyone, Yvonne here sharing a shaker Love Card I made for Mother’s Day…I know my mum will be very very happy to receive this one! Shaker cards are a lot of fun to make and with 3D Foam Creative Sheets Medium White, it’s also very easy to make. So, let me show you how I made the card.
With shaker cards, I like to work from top to bottom layer. Why? This way I trim the middle layer card to the right size panel after having adhered it to the top (Shaker layer). So I do not need to be very precise adhering these card layers.
Making the Shaker Top Layer
Trim a piece of patterned cardstock to a rectangle shape. Die-cut and emboss a circle towards the top center. This layer will be the shaker window.
Next, to cover the opening, adhere a piece of acetate to the back of the panel securing with the E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser.
Create the Shaker Feature
Die-cut with the same circle that was used for the window panel into the 3D Foam Creative Sheets Medium White three times. Using scissors, hand-cut a bigger circle around the circle openings of the 3D Foam Creative Sheets Medium White. You will need to do this with all three to create three rings. Remove the liners, stack and adhere all three rings to the back of the acetate window panel.
Then adhere 3D Foam Squares White Regular Size to the back of the card panel. Make sure to have the same height as the stacked 3D Foam Creative Sheets Medium White Circles. To achieve this I stacked a combination of 3D Foam Squares White Regular Size and Thin 3D Foam Squares White Mix.
Add some shaker materials on top of the acetate circle on the back side of the panel. Remove the liner on the 3D Foam Creative Sheets Medium White circle die cuts and all the 3D Foam Squares. Cover the shaker panel with the second piece of white cardstock panel and gently rub to assure secured adhering of the layers. You have finished the shaker part of the card!
The Shaker Card Base Instructions
Turn around the card panel with the shaker side up. Trim the white panel to the right size. Ink the edges of both layers with a grey ink pad and an ink blending tool. Then adhere the layers to a white card base with the E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser and trim the card base to the right size.
Embellishing the Card
Die-cut a wreath from green cardstock and adhered it to the card using 3D Foam Squares White Regular Size. Note that I cut them into small stripes to tuck behind the die cut.
Using the Dual Tip Glue Pen, glue the flowers, leaves, and stamens onto the wreath.
I adhered the metal butterflies to the wreath with the E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser.
Now die-cut the Love sentiment from gold glittered cardstock. Roll the E-Z Runner® Petite Permanent Dots Refillable Dispenser over the back of the Love die cut and adhere to the shaker window.
Finally, I made glue stripes onto the card using the Dual Tip Glue Pen and then sprinkled white glitter on top.
Let dry thoroughly and voila…your Shaker Mother’s Day card is finished.
Wishing you happy crafting!
