How about a fun shaker card for my special day? It’s my 10 year anniversary with Stampin’ Up! today! Woo Hoo! I can’t believe that I’ve been a demonstrator for 10 years! I’ve LOVED every year of it! I’ve met tons of great friends and have learned so many great things. I can’t wait to see what the next 10 years will hold!
Today’s card is one that I designed for one of my upcoming classes. It’s perfect for my anniversary isn’t it? One of the presenters at Leadership Conference showed us how to make these fun shaker cards. I couldn’t resist making my own. The shaker frame is made using the On Film Framelits Dies (#132969 $29.95) and a large Cello Bag (#102210 50/$4.95). The new cello bags are perfect for this because they don’t have a seam in the back like the old ones. I die cut the “polaroid frame” from a Silver Foil Sheet (#132178 2/$3.95). Then what you do is attach your cello bag to the back of the frame with Sticky Strip. You can either cut Stampin’ Up! Sticky Strip (#104294 $6.95) in half or you purchase narrow sticky tape online or from your local craft store. Adhere the tape to the bottom and two sides on the back of the frame. Line up the cello bag just below the opening of the frame and along one side edge. Your cello bag is bigger than the frame so you’ll have to trim it. Fill your cello bag and then use your Sticky Strip to close up the cello bag.
For the shaker portion of my card I punched out stars from Silver (#124005 2/$4.95) and Champagne (#127885 2/$4.95) Glimmer Paper using the star punch from the Merry Minis Punch Pack (#126882 3/$16.95). You won’t find these little punches in any catalog but they are still available.
To finish off the card I ran the background piece through the Big Shot with the fun Decorative Dots Embossing Folder that you can get for FREE during Sale-a-bration with a $50 order. FREE stuff! Woo Hoo!
I will try to do a tutorial on the shaker card next week when I get back from the mountains. It’s pretty easy and makes such a FUN card! Have a great day! Take care and Happy Stamping!
