A Shaker Card

Today`s workshop a Shaker Card

 here are the basics of a shaker card explained – look out for part 2 soon – as I have more ideas of how to use this in a slightly different way

1. Take your frame – I have used this one printed from the Cardmakers Year cd – cut out the aperture and I have used gold pentouch to edge the centre rim and this one has been matted with gold mirri to strengthen the frame – detail here of how to do that


2. Place double sided tape around the aperture on the reverse of the frame – then add the acetate to that


3. Place double sided foam around the inside of the frame – ensuring that there are no – so when you add your shaker bits none will fall through – if you are using bigger embellishments in the shaker part you will need to make the foam tape higher so that it gives room for the bits to actually shake 


4. Take an image or blank piece of card and make sure it fits behind the frame – if you are using an image then check it`s in the middle


5. It needs to cover the foam tape on the reverse of the frame – but don`t stick it down yet just set it aside – Just check it`s big enough then


6. Add you bits you want to shake – to make it to full remember the depth of the foam

I have used the Glitter Girls Crystal Blossoms and the 2 colours here match the frame


7. Remove the foam tape and add the prepared image or card if you wish – then I have added foam tape to the remaining edges so the whole piece is at one level and makes it nice a strong


8. Now add it to your base card


9. Then I have added organza ribbon and some roses to just tie the whole card together

Thanks for the question and please add more to this month`s as there are only 2 at the moment – not that they mind i`m sure as they have more chance of winning !!!

Please Dorthery Jupp if you are looking in – get in contact and i`ll send your prize out

Details here of all the bits going on at the moment

Thanks again – Suzanne
