Queen Bee Shaker Card Tutorial

Hi, Connie here with a wonderful Queen Bee shaker card constructed from scratch. Using the Crafty Foam Tape and a sheet of acetate (snagged some packaging), you’re set to go! Let me show you how.

Queen Bee Shaker Card Prep

Stamps are a major part of my embellishing the card front. Starting with the background to the detailed elements which are stamped, colored and trimmed are done and ready to go. Double-mat the background card front with black cardstock secured with the E-Z Runner® Grand Permanent Strips. Set aside the elements for now.

Making the Shaker Feature

Die-cut a Polaroid Frame to create the shaker front. Cut the acetate to cover the window frame. Flip the frame to its back to apply Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/8″ around the frame. Take off the liner and place the acetate down. Attach the Crafty Foam Tape to the edges of the frame. Next, sprinkle in a mix of sequins and beads in the middle of the card front. Remove the backing from the Crafty Foam Tape on the frame and place it over the sequin grouping. Press down to secure and complete!!

The Embellishment Cluster

Collect the stamped elements created earlier and place them around the framed shaker to decide on the placement of pretties. The Dual Tip Glue Pen is great to secure them as well as the 3D Foam Squares to lift up the elements for dimension.

For more height, adhere the card front to a folded card base with 3D Foam Squares to complete the Queen Bee shaker card.
