Progressive Cardmaking Class 2 Day 5

Day 5 was all about shaker cards. I own the foam strips, can find clear acetate or packaging for the shape to hold something, but could not locate sequins to use, so I improvised.

I cut balloons with Lawn Fawn balloon dies on white cardstock. Then I selected the patterned paper I wanted to use to place behind the balloons. This is an Echo Park birthday collection. I found cardstock that would work with the patterned paper, cut and scored it. Then I went looking for sequins. I really do not have many and couldn’t locate any that would really work, so I found buttons. There are colors of buttons that may not be the best for this patterned paper, but I decided to let it go and use them. I added Nuvo drops to the front of the card and this time they did stay clear. The greeting is also from Lawn Fawn. This is probably the second shaker card that I have ever made.

  1. Lisa, I love that you made a shaker card! Your buttons may not be exactly what you were looking for, but they work perfectly. I find shakers lots of fun to make and you can use anything inside, depending upon size and what you use for your “window”. Great job on your card!
