Square Shaker Card + Video!

Good Afternoon!!  Today, I am bringing you a shaker card tutorial.  I love shakers - they are so much fun, and the possibilities are endless when it comes to making them, and what you can put in them.  No wonder they are so popular.  For my card today I am using Mama Elephant's Sunny Skies stamp set as well as sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.  I recently picked up some of the new iridescent colors that Paulina has in her shop!

I started out by die cutting a piece of my favorite white card stock and a piece of the Sea Glass Card Stock from Simon Says Stamp using one of the frames from the Small Stitched Square die set from Lawn Fawn, and then I used the coordinating balloon die from the Sunny Skies set, and die cut two balloons from my white panel to create my window panel for my shaker.  I, then stamped onto my Sea Glass card stock the balloons from the stamp set using Lemon Yellow ink, and Raspberry Jam ink, both from Hero Arts.  I stamped the basket from the stamp set and the sentiment 'Sunny Skies Ahead'  onto my white window panel.  I then adhered a die cut piece of acetate to the back of my white panel to complete the window panel.  Then, I covered the back of the panel with foam adhesive before adding some fun sequins. 

I added the Sunshine Glow and Strawberry Burst Iridescent sequins to my windows, and then I removed my foam adhesive backing papers to expose the stick side, and then I adhered my stamped panel.  Success!  Time to give it a few shakes!   To finish the card, I die cut another piece of Sea Glass card stock with another square frame and adhered that to a 5x5 white card base.

If you are interested in seeing how this one came together - I have the how to video below.

Thanks for stopping by!!
