Hello my friends at the ScrapbookPal blog. Penny here today with a shaker card for you. I live a stones throw from Clearwater Beach, Fl and while I was there recently, I thought…oh oh oh I have to make a shaker card with sand and shells. So if you are reading this tutorial from somewhere cold weathered…I hope this cheers you up!
Just a note before I begin…. have you ever finished a card and then thought…hum, I don’t really care for that? Well this happened to me with the card you see pictured above. In the future, I would cut a second oval for the shaker part so you don’t see the Paisley embossing behind the sand…just saying!
Let’s make a card…………….
Cut a base card 5 1/2 x 4 1/4.
Cut a beige card stock just a bit smaller than your base. Dry emboss.
Cut a piece of Kraft card stock 5 1/4 x 3 1/2. Dry emboss.
Die cut desired oval from Kraft card stock. Die cut oval from clear plastic sheet and attach.
Die cut thin foam three times (to give height for shells). Cut centers from foam ovals. and attach.
Attach all embellishments to card base EXCEPT shaker.
Turn shaker embellishment upside down and apply glossy accents to foam leaving about a two inch opening at the top free of glue. Flip and attach to your card front. LET DRY !!!
Gently lift unglued portion to pour in sand and tiny shells. Apply glue to this top portion with a pin or craft knife and let dry.
(I know you are tempted to shake it..but don’t! Your sand will adhere to places you don’t want it to be…trust me!)
Hope you enjoyed the card and may you have a really crafty day.
Thanks for stamping by…..
