Today I’m going to share all my best secrets for making a simple Shaker Card! When I make these cute little cards I like to make sure there is no fussing about just a quick, simple and reliable technique! If that’s not enough, I’ve made this card using the stunning Starburst sprays from Lindy’s! This year I decided to try out a rather different color combination. I’m a little in love with Rose Gold, so have combined Silver, White and Rose Gold together on this card.
When dry your papers will have a stunning shimmer perfect for Christmas, gotta love those Lindy’s Starburst sprays!
Flick a little Silent Night Silver onto the lightest coloured piece of card. This will be the top layer.
Add some Sidewalk chalk spray onto the darkest piece of card and dry with a heat gun. This will be the base card.
Use two coordinating dies to cut the images for the shaker scene – one from the lighter Starburst sprayed card and one from the darker piece.
Create a little pile of glitter, sequins and whatever else you would like on top of the base card – place it directly in the centre of where the cut out hole will be positioned and then layer the front panel directly over the top.
Of course I filmed the whole creation step-by-step so you can create your own shaker card along with me if you like. You can watch the process in the video below and see every little detail – enjoy!
