Shaker Card For You

Today’s card was made from inspiration using the Blooms and Butterflies color challenge and watching the 2013 Stampin’ Up! Convention.

The colors used are: Chocolate Chip, Soft Sky and Wild Wasabi

For You-shaker card

Watching the opening ceremony for the convention they demonstrated a shaker card using the Washi Tape, which happens to be on my wish list.  So I decided to switch it up and use what I do have.  This card is super fun to put together. When you pick it up and shake it the parts move inside, Fun!


Card size: 5 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ : Layers: Chocolate Chip and Window Sheet are both cut out at 5″ x 4″ Other parts: Punched out & I used the Chalk Talk Framelits (you could cut out with scissors if you don’t have).


Cardstock & window sheet

Step 1: Using chocolate chip and the window sheet, I used Sticky Tape and placed the tape on all 4 sides the chocolate chip paper and removed 3 sides of the film cover from the sticky tape to adhere the window sheet on top. (Note: leave the 4th side covered otherwise you can’t get your goodies in, I also used less on this side so I can get the film cover off.)

Cardstock with Sticky Tape

Step 2: Punch out your items you want inside to shake,(you could use an array of items inside).  Add the pieces inside.

Step 3: Remove the film cover off the sticky tape on the 4th side to seal.

Step 4: Use sticky tape or snail on the outside of the window sheet on all 4 sides and cover with ribbon.

Step 5: Finish by attaching the layer, sentiments, images and any embellishments and attach to base card.

Note: If you do have washi tape then it’s even easier.  Start with colored cardstock and lay the window sheet on top. Apply washi tape on all 3 sides. (You want to get some washi tape on the front of the card and some on the back side so that this forms the seal).  Punch out your goodies and add inside. Close the 4th side with the washi tape. Finish your card by attaching any sentiments, images and embellishments you like and attach to base card.
