Welcome to the Totally Techniques Blog Hop! I’m Lynsay Mahon, from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Each month we feature a technique and our team showcases their creative talents, using that technique!
This month, our selected technique is “Shaker Cards.” There are a couple of ways to do shaker cards, but my favourite is definitely the simplest! Take a look at my creation using this simple shaker card method:
This method uses a clear envelope to create the shaker part. Let me show you how I made this:
After you’ve stamped the images you’d like on the card front, slide it into a clear envelope and push it to one edge of the envelope. Add whatever shaker elements you’d like to include. I created paper confetti using the leftover hearts from the Detailed Hearts Die.
Once the confetti is in, close the flap of the envelope, using the tape that’s already on the flap to seal it tight to the card front. Then add a piece of Tear & Tape to the edge of the card front to be able to hold the excess envelope tight to the card front.
I’d recommend using Tear & Tape to hold the card front onto the card, as this element is a little heavier.
Here’s the finished look:
