Easy and Quick Shaker Card

I know you have all seen shaker cards all over the internet and so have I, but I had a customer request for this card she said they intimidate her for some reason. So she asked if we could show her step by step how to make an easy one. This is the results below. I love making them, you can put anything inside for the shaker elements, just use your imagination.

Video Tutorial:

The supplies I used are linked below the video.

The dimensions are a regular top folding card 5 1/2"x 4 1/4". Score in the middle of the 11" side at 5 1/2".

Outside frame dimensions is same as card base, all I did was come in 1/2" from all sides and cut out the middle to create the frame part. The acetate is 4x5 1/4". I just used a stamp set I had for the trees, Nuvo glitter drops in White blizzard to create the snow and an old stamp set for the Merry Christmas. To make the glitter drops have even more of an impact add white glitter to them while they are still wet. Glue a few of the sequins around on the page so they will stay in place this help create the illusion of snow falling in your card.

Put all your pieces together and you have a lovely shaker card, quick simple and oh so fun!!
