Shaking the Stars – 1st birthday fun!

I’ve been wanting to have a go at a shaker card for ages now!  There’s lots of tutorials out there (have a search on youtube), but the basic premise is:

  • Cut out a shape using a punch or framelit
  • Add window sheet to create a see-through front
  • Add some depth using foam to the reverse side along the outline of your shape – Shaker Frames (great for circle shapes) or Stampin’ Dimensionals work well
  • Fill with confetti
  • Take the backing off the foam pieces
  • Attach to your card

I got a little fancy and made the shaker section a peep hole style card, so that you could see through to the inside of the card where I placed a sparkly “1” for the birthday girl.  The final version took me a few drafts (I kept doing things around the wrong way!) but I’m delighted with it.  Fun, fun, fun!  Try one – they make an impression.  Kelly x
