The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store - Born to be a STAR Shaker Card - Quick & Easy!

Hello everyone and happy Friday!  I can't believe we are already almost half way through January.  I know Spring is still way off but I am wishing for warmer weather lol.  Yesterday here in Minnesota it was in the 40's and as I type up this blog post it is -30 (yes that is a minus sign!) with the windchill!  Oh it's so darn cold lol.

Today, is my day to post for The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store but before I get to my post I want to apologize for not posting the winner for the Seasons Giving blog hop.  I have had some personal things going on and I honestly just forgot.  But stop back a little later today and I will be posting the winner for the $30 Simon Says Stamp Gift Card.

Ok, let's get on to the card.  :)

For today's card I used some of the fun pattern papers from the Graphic 45 - Vintage Hollywood collection.  I used one of the cut outs to create a quick and easy shaker card.  This card really came together in less then 10 minutes.  I love shaker card but sometimes I just don't have the time to create them.  So I started looking at the cut outs in the paper collection and a few other collections.  I think you would be surprised at how many of the cut out have areas that can be cut out with a craft knife to create quick and easy shaker cards.

To start I used a craft knife to fussy cut the center of the star.  If you are careful enough when cutting out pieces you can save them to use as embellishments on your card.  Now to create the shaker all I had to do was add a piece of Acetate to the back of the cut out and then add  Foam Tape around the outer edges.  Fill with sequins and add cardstock to the back.  I cut a piece of black cardstock that was a litter larger to give the cut out a background layer.

Before I assembled the card I wanted to add a little sparkle.  I used the Zig Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen to add some sparkle to the large stars on the background paper, the smaller cut out star and the word star on the shaker.

Here is a close up of the shaker.  I filled it with 5mm Black Sequins and Tiny Silver Star Sequins.  I added the cut out star to the top right corner and put a piece of foam tape behind it to pop it up a bit.  I also added a few of the tiny star sequins to the outside of the card.

I used kraft paper to create a A2 top folding card base.  The next time you want to create a shaker card I encourage you to look through the cut outs in your paper collections and see what areas could be cut out to create a little window for a shaker card.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you enjoyed my card share!

  2. I love this, Heidi! I will now have to go and look through my paper stash. I think I have a rooster from the G45 French Country set that could be used as a shaker card.
