Rule the World Shaker Card by Margie Higuchi
Hi, coffee-loving friends! Margie here today sharing a coffee-themed shaker card with texture and an unexpected element too. Using the Keepsake Envelopes, I share how to make an easy and fast way to create a shaker feature. Let me show you how, along with other ideas!
Shaker Card Basics and Texture
I cut three layers for this green A2-sized (4.25 x 5.5-inch) card base. The yellow patterned paper was cut at 4 x 5.25-inches, the Kraft paper was cut at 3.75 x 5.00-inches and the flower patterned paper was cut at 2 x 4-inches to slid inside the Keepsake Envelope (on the right side of image).
To make texture on the Kraft cardstock panel, I used a coffee-themed embossing folder and rolled it through the die-cutting machine. LOVE how it turned out!! Designer’s Note: lightly water mist the Kraft panel before embossing for a crisp embossed design.
Making a Window
Die-cut a coffee cup window shape in the embossed Kraft panel. Set aside.
Since I had my die-cutting machine out, I die-cut the lid and the sleeve out of ivory cardstock. Then I stamped the sentiment on the sleeve with brown ink. Set aside.
Shaking It Up a Bit
Slip the 2 x 4-inch flower patterned paper into the rectangle Keepsake Envelope. Add sequins and shaped glitter in front of the paper. Take the small liner in front off, fold the flap over on top to seal. Keep the back liner on – you will need it to add to the Kraft window panel.
Apply E-Z Runner® Grand Ultra Strong adhesive on the edges of the Kraft window panel. Using the back liner of the Keepsake Envelope as a handle, place the envelope over the window and use the liner to press the envelope into the adhesive to secure.
Adding a Twist
To add some fun, I had an unused coffee cup stopper that I grabbed from my coffee shop. I used a combination of Adhesive Dots 3D for the top (because it had a stopper and was thick) and Adhesive Dots Small for the bottom tip. I tuck the bottom into the window and then secured the top.
Then I added 3D Foam Strip on the top edge of my window to lift the coffee lid over the coffee stopper. I stacked two strips. Repeat for the sleeve.
Assembly the Card
Lift the layered panel with Crafty Foam Tape White and secure onto the green card base. You’re done!
I hope that my Rule the World Shaker Card inspired you to try this easy method for a shaker element.
