Hello crafty friends and welcome back! Tracy here, and today I have a fun and interactive little Hot Air Balloon Shaker Card tutorial to share with you. In these crazy days of less contact, I think we should be sending more cards to brighten up the days of the ones we love. What better fun to share than a bright and cheery shaker card. Here are all of the details.
Let’s Get Started on this Shaker Card:
I started with the Creative Embellishments hot air ballon shaker kit, which includes all of the pre-cut pieces you need. I painted the top and base pieces of chipboard. Then I also painted the sides of the remaining chipboard pieces.
When created a shaker card, it is so important that your layers are completely dry before adding any of your shaker contents. So…while that sits and dries, create your simple card base.
Cue drying music.
The card base is white cardstock and then I cut layers of Bloom Street patterned paper. Adhere the patterns to the base using the E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser, as well as the top layer with Creative Photo Corners White. The reason I used the E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser paired with the Creative Photo Corners White is that a shaker card can be a little weighty. I wanted the look of the Creative Photo Corners White, but needed the stability of the E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser.
The shaker is completely dry. Now I added the fabulous fun of this sequins mix from Spiegelmom Scraps.
Complete the shaker card balloon by adding the top piece using the Dual Tip Glue Pen. Again, let this dry completely before adding it to your card front.
Thanks so much for stopping by to check out my Hot Air Balloon Shaker Card!
