It's krafty girl Marilyn here and today I'd like to show you how I make a "shaker" card. Through trial and error I have come up with the idea of using foam board instead of foam adhesive. Let's get started!
Spellbinder Dies, Foam Board, Acetate, Glue, Sequins.
Cut 4 large circles (one at a time) with the small die inside, then glue them together and let dry.
I've cut, layered and taped my card stock/designer paper together and using the large die, place it on the paper where you want the opening to be. Tape it down and cut. I've placed mine off center. You may have to run it through your cutting machine a few times.
Now, add your sequins or beads, then I added another circle of card stock to close the back.
Add some foam adhesive and attach to your card base.
Here is my card all finished using the "Dragon Queen" stamp.
There are so many ways to make and incorporate a shaker element to your card. You can make the opening any size or shape you would like. Here is another card I made awhile ago with the image on the inside of the shaker.
Itty Bitty Friends". Here I've used beads instead of the sequins. The method to make the shaker card is still the same.
I hope this has inspired you to make a few shaker cards of your own! Don't forget to share if you do!
