Hi crafters! Happy November! Sorry that I haven’t posted in so long – I have been sharing pictures and videos and projects on lots of other platforms (check out our Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and YouTube pages) but I thought that it would be good to do a blog post on how to make a shaker card as it’s nice to do these at Christmas. A bit of sparkle never goes amiss and you often want an extra special card for family or friends.
This is the first design of shaker card that I made – it has a simple circle aperture and inside I’ve placed sequins and little wooden horses from the Dala Horse baubles and horses embellishments pack. I love that they fit! Shaker cards are quick and easy to make once you’ve got your head around how to put them together – I explain everything in this short 5 minute YouTube tutorial.
You can do any sort of design on the front to finish it off, but if you’re stamping straight on the card I recommend doing that before putting together the shaker element inside.
Here’s another design similar to the first but I’ve cut out some of the paper designs from the Dala Horse paper pack and used them as embellishments at the top instead of the banner, sequin trim and horses as above. Once of the nice things about the paper packs is that you can cut out lots of the elements and use them in different ways on your projects.
