Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop - Shaker Cards


Welcome to the Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop-this month we are sharing Shaker Cards!  They are so fun to make and certainly fun to receive!!

I have two Shaker Cards to share - my first is a simple way to make a shaker card -

For this Shaker Card, I used products from the Festive Birthday Suite found on pages 10 and 11 of the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.

I created a simple panel using white cardstock as my base,  I slipped this panel into a clear envelope.  Before sealing the envelope, I added a pinch of sequins from the Brights Sequin Assortment.

To finish the card, I stamped the llama, complete with his festive blanket and a small flower. No fussy cutting needed here- I used the Fiesta Time framelits to cut out these shapes! To finish the card, I created two banners with the Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper and Fiesta Time framelits.

I think this llama is so cute!  We have a "thing" for llamas in my family, and this card will be gong to my daughter Anna this week for her birthday!  

Cuts for this card:  Base - Tempting Turquoise 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", Melon Mambo 4" x 5 1/4",  Whisper White 3 3/4" x 5"

My second shaker card is full of sneak peeks from the upcoming Holiday Catalog!  These products will be available September 1 when the Holiday Catalog goes live!

The minute I saw the Detailed Santa thinlet dies in the Holiday Catalog, I thought - shaker card!

Shakers cards have a wow factor to them, but they are actually pretty easy to create!!  For my card, I cut the Santa thinlet with Whisper White cardstock (be sure to use the Precision Plate - it is a must have for these types of detailed dies!) and adhered a piece of Window Sheet of the same size to the back of this piece - ( 4 inch square).

I also cut 4 inch square with Real Red cardstock- this piece creates a "box" or "frame" that holds the beads, sequins, punched pieces or whatever you choose to use to make the card shake!  To create the "box" - I used the new foam adhesive strips  - they are like dimensionals but in strips - they are sticky on both sides,  and make creating shaker cards super easy!

This photo shows the box I created to hold the beads for my shaker card.  When you do this, you want to be sure to make the strips tight so that no beads/sequins can escape!  I added a few beads and placed the Santa/Window sheet layer on top of this. 

The beads are now secured in the box and this piece can be attached to the card base.

To finish my card, I added a greeting - this is from the Greetings From Santa stamp set that is bundled with the detailed Santa thinlets.  I used some baker's twine to attach three jingle bells to Santa's beard.

Cuts for this card:  base - Real Red 8 1/2"x 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4", Whisper White, Window Sheet and Real Red cardstock - 4 inch square.

 At the bottom of the post I have listed the products used in both of these shaker cards.  Please let me know if you have questions!  If you don't have a demonstrator, I would love to have the opportunity to serve as your demonstrator!
