Hello Crafty Friends!
Thank you for visiting this past weekend during the Christmas in July Hop. Each day I created a different card, but I did not have the opportunity to explain how to make a shaker card from Day 3. I now have pictures and instructions to show you how I made this card.
First, you will need to purchase the Shake It card pouches. I bought mine at the local scrapbooking store. There are 10 in a package and they do come in various shapes and sizes. Here is the link to find out more...Impression-Obsession.
Next, I used the Wild Card cartridge to cut my card base from a solid colored piece of cardstock at 4 3/4". I selected the "stitched card" on p. 35. My small pouch fits perfectly. If you do not own the cartridge, you can make your own window with a square punch or you can purchase the overlays with the shaker pouches.
Now, peal the sticker from the self-adhesive shaker window pouch and align over the cut-out square. Press on the edges around the window to make sure the two pieces are sticking together firmly.
Once the window pouch is set, you can add the front liner and frame. Be sure to save the square piece of paper from the liner. You will use this to seal in the glitter. I used the Wild Card cartridge to cut both these pieces at 4 3/4".
You are ready to begin the next step.
- First, you will need to find an image or digi (approximately 1" in size) for your window. Be sure to adhere the picture well or the glitter will stick to the edges. I used Doodlecharms to cut a gift (p. 109) at 1 1/2".
- Next, pour a small amount of glitter into the window as it is laying on a flat surface. I am using red shaped glitter that I purchased at Michaels on clearance for my window.
Here is what your card will look like from the front.
To create the inside liner, choose you paper and cut it slightly smaller than the card base to create a framed look.
Decorate and add your message. : )
I still need to add my sentiment and a few more cuts, but now you have instructions on how to make a shaker card. I think any child will enjoy receiving one. It will be like magic trying to figure out how the glitter got on the inside since you can't see the small piece hidden behind the liner. Good luck making one!
