Beautiful Full Front Flat Shaker Birthday Card
Updated: Nov 17, 2021
Hello Everyone and thank you so much for stopping by to check out this beautiful full front shaker birthday card!! Let's jump right in.
For this card I started out by blending my background with a Balloon stencil from Simon Says Stamp and three Distress Oxide Inks in Salvaged Patina, Shaded Lilac and Wilted Violet. I did use some Pixie Spray on my stencil so it didn't move while I was blending over it. For the sentiment I cut out 3 layers in white cardstock and one layer from Holographic cardstock of the Happy Birthday Wafer Die from Simon says stamp and layered them up creating a more Chipboard look to the sentiment.
Now I needed to make my shaker pocket, I used stamp packaging and trimmed it down to fit about the coloured panel, I used some scortape to make sure the pocket can't go anywhere to leak out my shaker bits, I sealed up all but one side and scooped in some Distress Glitter and a fun sequine mix and sealed the last pocket side. I adhered my sentiment on the shaker pocket and used some acrylic blocks to hold it in place. All I needed to do now was adhere my shaker pocket to my A2 sized Base.
I love how this card came out and hope you will try your hand at making some flat shaker cards, I have a full video tutorial if you would like a more in-depth look at how I make the shaker pocket or how this card came together please check out the video below, I also have a full supplies list below the video if you want to know exactly what I used.
