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.
• 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.
Add an oval to your digital mat and resize to 5.75x4.25 inches, add a square to your digital mat and resize to 6.75x6.75 inches and then centralise the two shapes.
Cut the shape out of kraft card.
Cut the shape out of foam. Cut a piece of acetate measuring 6.50x6.50 inches and stick to the foam using red liner tape.
Stamp the script stamp on to the Kraft card with the versafine ink. Cut the leaf dies out of yellow, brown, red and orange card. 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. On the Scan and cut, add an oval to your digital mat and resize to 6.00x4.50 inches. Add one more oval and resize to 5.25x4.00 inches and centralise the two shapes. Cut out of yellow card and stick it to the Kraft card.
Cut red card measuring 7.25x7.25 inches and orange measuring 7.50x7.50 inches and glue the red to the orange card.
Using the distress oxides and blending tool, blend the three inks together on a piece of white card measuring 6.50x6.50 inches.
Die cut the tree and punch out brown, orange, red and yellow leaves. Glue the tree and leaves to the inked background. Glue to the red and orange card.
Stick the leaf topper to the foam. Add some loose leaves to the centre of the shaker card and then stick the foam to the inked background.
