Hello crafter's. How are you all?

I'm back with a shaker card tutorial. Many people are put off by shaker cards in fear that they're difficult. But honestly, they're very easy and always give a wow factor. I'll talk you through this one...

I started by cutting my frame die from a piece of Marine Blue 240gsm card.

Then, I made a US A2 top fold card blank from Cobalt Blue 250gsm card by measuring against the frame and trimming away any excess.

I trimmed a piece of acetate to fit within the frame - no bigger, no smaller. I stuck this down with some double sided tape.

To this, I now ran some foam tape around the frame, ensuring no gaps were left.

Now, I sprinkled in some shaker pieces, then, I sealed the shaker element by adding another piece of acetate over the double sided tape. This needs to be no smaller than the perimeter of your foam tape so that no gaps are left.

Then, around the edge of this, I added some more double sided tape and secured this to my card blank.

Finally, I added my sentiments.

I cut my sentiment from both blue cards used for the card. I adhered the Cobalt Blue to the Marine Blue offset slightly to create a shadow using wet adhesive and stuck this down to my card using wet adhesive also. I used a small amount of glue here as glue on acetate can be very unforgiving.

I used an offcut of the Maring blue to stamp my sentiment and stuck this down using wet adhesive to finish the card.

I'd love to see you're shaker cards over on our community group on Facebook group 'Papermill Community'.

Until next time, take care.

Love, Dani xx
