Hi there! This is Daniel West with Del and Artie, I’m so glad you’re here with me.
Shaker cards can really bring a smile to just about anyone. Today, I’m going to share a shaker card tutorial with you to make the project a lot less mysterious. Your friends will still wonder how you did it, though! I also created a video tutorial for your convenience.
Baking powder, cornstarch or talc-free baby powder
Die cutting machine
Stamping tool (i.e. large acrylic block, MISTI)
Strong liquid adhesive
Follow these step-by-step directions to complete your card:
Begin by cutting a 4.25 x 5.5” card panel out of a sheet of the Mars cardstock.
Die cut the word SMILE out of the panel about a third way from the bottom.
Emboss your sentiment just above the peek through die cut.
Trim a piece of acetate to 4 x 5.25 and adhere it to the back of the panel behind the die cute window using a strong adhesive. (I use scrap pieces from stamp sets).
Create a card base out of the Pure White 100lb cardstock. Make sure you score before you fold for a clean line! (Visit ourScoring Paper 101 page to learn how.)
Add some double-sided foam tape around the outer edges of the card base and remove the backing. (I prefer the Brutus Monroe Foam Tape for shaker cards because it is double-thick and I only have to lay down one layer of tape. If you use another brand, you may need to use two layers of tape.)
Pour your sequin mix into the center of the card base.
Adhere your panel to the front of the card base over the sequins and shake!!
