Hi, Jamie here today! I am excited to share a shaker card made from a pretty paper pad. It’s easy to assemble using the right adhesives from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.
Preparing the Card Base and Background
To start I splattered white ink on a dusty pink panel and mounted it to an off-white card using E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser. Note: I have my E-Z Dots® Permanent Refill in my red E-Z Runner® Refillable Dispenser. I love that I don’t have to order a whole new dispenser but just the refill. 🙂
Two coordinating papers from the pad were die-cut using a Nested Deckle Rectangle Die, both sheets are the same size. Layer them slightly askew and secure with the E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser.
Die-cutting the Tag and Window
Die-cut the floral paper using the Holiday Tags Die. Then cut with a smaller tag die from the set centered on the tag. I didn’t want the top part of the tag die-cut, so I placed the embossing plate at the bottom scallop of the die and ran it through my embossing machine. This will make only the bottom portion of the tag cut (see bottom right image). Place a ruler across the tag and use a craft knife to cut it off. Don’t forget to cut on a self-healing mat.
Preparing the Shaker Window
The decorative paper isn’t thick so I resolve that by die-cutting the tag with the cutout from white cardstock to make it sturdy when it pops up. Adhere the two pieces using the E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser. Die-cut the acetate using the larger die and attach it to the back of the tag using the E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser.
The Final Touches
Adhere the die-cut paper panels using the E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser. Place shaker bits in the center of the panel. Add the tag on top.
Adhere 3D Foam Circles White Mix on the back of the sentiment and pop it up in the center of the acetate. Cut the butterflies from one of the papers, slightly bend the wings, and glue them to the card with the Dual Tip Glue Pen. Lastly, pale pink enamel dots were placed on the card.
