Class Projects - Shaker Cards

Hi All

So we had another class on Tuesday and we would like to share with you the Shaker Cards we created. We really enjoyed teaching the ladies how to construct these and we're so happy that they enjoyed it too.


We started with a basic card using the medium Butterfly thinlet die and a stamp from Watercolour Wings.
Card Size 10.5cm x 10.5 cm
Frame 8.7cm x 8.7cm with 1cm border
We used the Stampin' Trimmer to prepare the frame which was much faster and accurate than using a knife.


The card base is embossed but it works better debossed as Andrea suggested during class - this is why it's great to craft with others and share ideas! 


We then created a Christmas Shaker Card using the Sheltering Tree stamp as well as the sentiment and bow from the Wondrous Wreath stamp set.
Card Size 14.8cm x 14.8cm


The tree was embossed in silver before sponging Island Indigo and Night of Navy for the background. Embossing the tree catches the glitter flakes on the branches which we prefer.


For the last project we made this Shaker Bag using the Mini Treat Bag thinlits and the elephant from Zoo Babies set.


Some of the silver hearts confetti were raised with foam pads to catch the sequins, papers and glitters. The sentiment was coloured using Tempting Turquoise marker which made stripes on the card to match the elephant and the Go Wild DSP.

What do you think of these Shaker Cards? 

If you or know of someone that might be interested in joining us at our classes in Basingstoke, please don't hesitate to contact us. Or pop in to Hobbycraft (Winchester Road, RG22 6HN), Tuesday 18th August, 3pm - 5pm for a chat and some stampin'.

Thanks for looking and happy stampin'
