Shaker Card – Technique Tuesday

See the card below, really there should be a video attached because the frame is built up so that the sequins can move and shake around in there!  So much FUN!  Perfect for your fun-loving, bright friend who needs a great celebration card! And, before you tell me that this looks too complicated for you, stick around and I think we’ll both agree you’re more than suited for this project. 😉IMG_6527The first thing you should do to start out is to cut out all your pieces for the shaker piece.  I found that that border around the Stampin’ Dimensionals, the one that you might even throw out (heaven forbid!!) is perfect for bordering your window.  Depending on the size of window you make you can use the entire piece or cut down and piece it around the window.  I cut my Whisper White cardstock to 3 7/8″ x 4 3/8″ and the Window Sheet to 3 3/4″ x 4 1/4.”  Cut a window out of the white cardstock (your choice of size, but using the square dies would be the easiest).  Decorate the white window as you desire.  I stamped a confetti design.  After you have your opening cut out, adhere the clear window sheet to the white cardstock.  Then, line your window (what will be visible once it’s turned over) with the flat edge of the dimensionals.  Once you have a complete edge around the opening, peel off the strip to reveal the sticky edge.

Then, make a small pile of sequins or filler of your choice.  I love sequins because they’re pretty inexpensive and they’re sparkly!  Perfect for a celebratory card!  And carefully lay down your window around the pile of sequins.  Press down securely around the window where your dimensionals are to be sure it’s in place.  Ta-Da!  Embellish as you wish and Finished!  That wasn’t too bad was it?
