Hi everyone! With Christmas a little over a month away I made a Christmas Shaker Card. This card is all about fuzzy cutting, layering, and of course a shaker doom. I would love to share how I made my card. Wanna join me?
Die-cut an oval from white cardstock. Then trim a white cardstock into a rectangle-sized top card panel. Use the cut oval as a guide to cut out a larger oval from a piece of white cardstock with scissors. This will become the shaker’s background.
Cut a piece of acetate to fit the oval shaker window and adhere it to the back of the card panel using Crafty Power Tape Dispenser 81ft.
Place strips of Crafty Foam Tape White around the back of the card panel and around the oval window. This will be the shaker window panel.
Designer’s Tip: I used scissors to make tiny incisions on the Crafty Foam Tape White around the oval shaper window to make it easy to “bend” around the window (as pictured).
To add a fun element to the Christmas Shaker card, I mixed a couple of wonderful shaker mixes from Buttons Galore More into the shaker feature.
Remove the liner from Crafty Foam Tape White and cover the window with the hand-cut larger white oval. Make sure no shaker material can escape. Adhere the shaker card panel onto a patterned paper mat, and place it onto a white card base using the E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser.
Fuzzy Cut Elements
To add scenery to the Christmas Shaker card front, I fuzzy cut images from patterned paper and layered them with a combination of Thin 3D Foam Squares White Mix and 3D Foam Squares White Small Size. This helps to create a lovely dimensional interest. For a final touch, stamp a sentiment on white cardstock, cut it to a banner, and adhere it with 3D Foam Squares White Small Size. Voilá, your card is ready!
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and wish you happy crafting!
