Hi, everyone! Like making shaker cards? Teri here, and I’m going to show you a way that is easier than ever for making them!
All you need are a couple Keepsake Envelopes and a few basic card making supplies!
Create a Shaker Birthday Card
Start with a rectangle of cardstock that is large enough to fit on a card base. Cover the rectangle with patterned paper. You can use just one paper or many. It’s entirely up to you.
Use a die to cut a shape out of the decorated rectangle panel. (Don’t have a die? Use a paper trimmer to cut a square or rectangle instead!)
Take a Keepsake Envelope and add sequins to it! Be sure to pick an envelope that is bigger than your cut shape. If you are using an envelope significantly larger than your cut shape, add a few lines of Premium Double-Sided Tape 1/4″ to the inside of the pocket to keep the sequins from moving all over it.
Place the envelope on the back of the rectangle behind the opening. Secure it in place with Premium Double-Sided Tape 1″. Add some additional strips of Crafty Foam Tape to the panel and adhere the panel to a pre-folded card.
Complete your card by adding a sentiment to it, as well as some embellishments. Stickers and sequins are a fun way to spruce up your design! Gems are another fun option!
Change Up Your Design
Don’t limit yourself to using just stars to cut your shaker window opens! Try using more generic shapes, like circles.
You can kick things up a notch more by decorating the shaker itself by adding a sticker or rub-on to it!
I hope you are inspired to make a few easy shaker birthday cards of your own!
