Autumn Shaker Card

Created by Helen Kirkham

I love creating shaker cards. I find them fairly simple to create if you follow these easy steps, but once they are completed they look more complicated than they actually are. This is a fun project to create and using a few dies and stamps you can create a beautiful background paper as well.

Helping hand:
• When creating a shaker card, use a powder tool on the acetate to stop static cling.
• If you struggle to remove the cover of the red liner tape use a pokey tool to lift it off.

Ink the edges of the leaves with the distress oxides and glue to the Kraft card. Snip away any parts of the leaves hanging over the edges. Ink the edges of the Kraft card.
