Card #19 – Shaker Birthday Card
I started by assembling all my supplies.
I’ve been intrigued by shaker cards for a while now. I thought this would be a good time to try one.
This card is a design that could be used for any occasion.
I used pink cardstock (4 1/4″ X 11″) for my base, white cardstock (4″ X 5 1/4″) for the card front and patterned cardstock for the circle backgrounds and sentiment circle.
I began by die cutting the two circles on the card front. Then I die cut the background patterned cardstock, the clear acetate and the two foam rings. A shaker card needs about 1/8″ between the acetate and the patterned paper for the sequins. The foam rings are glued between the acetate and the patterned paper.
First I glued the acetate to the circles using Glossy Accents. I let that dry for a few minutes and then glued the foam rings around the circles. When that dried I sprinkled a few sequins and micro beads into the foam ring wells.
I glued the patterned paper over the foam rings to prevent the sequins from falling out. I finished off the back of the card front by placing foam tape along the perimeter of the cardstock.
Before attaching the card front to the pink card base, I white embossed the sentiment to one of the circles and attached it using foam squares. As a last minute thought, I die cut a smaller circle out of the silver embossed sheet I used in yesterday’s card.
I finished the card by gluing a few pink sequins.
Here is the finished card.

I love circles because I’m really good at making them when I chase my tail.
Another awesome card!
One of the things I like a lot about your cards is they are very versatile – just change the message and it works for something else. You are very creative, but then I knew that 🙂
Thanks Pam. For me, the hardest part is coming up with design. Once I have that then I can be a cardmaking factory just by changing things up.
That is so cool!
Really nice card.
Very pretty card – I love it!
Wasn’t sure what a Shaker card was and then I saw your finished product. Very nice.
