I’ve been loving the entries so far in our latest challenge
There are so many different ways to make a shaker card, but today I wanted to share
a quick and easy way to get that fun shaker card made in a jiffy!
Today I’m using Hero Arts Kelly’s Outline Letters.
I love how fun this set is, but I’ll admit I was a bit hesitant. I’m not the best with customizing sentiments
and making sure the letters are straight and evenly spaced, but here’s a
TIP: use the grid that the stamp set comes with! Or use any type of graph paper to help align everything!
This was a lightbulb moment for me…haha!!
I took heavyweight cardstock (110lb) and die cut a window using a stitched rectangle die.
Then lined up all my alphas (using the grid) to stamp out “CELEBRATE.” The “E” was tricky, but I just left
enough space to stamp where it was needed. “YOUR DAY” was stamped out at once.
Of course it’s not a Niki G. card without Hero Arts ombre inks
to add color to the letters.
I wanted the sentiment to be the focal point so I used the Hero Arts Grey to Black ombre ink to
add some pizazz to the frame. I thought the little fill in shapes would be perfect
and really liked using them like confetti!
Now for the shaker part! I used some plastic packaging (you know the kind we all accumulate
from buying tons and tons of crafty products!) and die cut a rectangle slightly larger to cover the window.
(using a die cuts right through both layers of the plastic packaging
to create the sandwich you need to put your shaker bits inside).
I added some mini silver stars from my stash and used washi tape to adhere on the inside.
That completes my card!! I like these kinds of shaker cards because they go through the mail with ease
and I don’t have to worry about the bulkiness in the envelope.
