StampFairy with a new challenge to create shaker cards! They may look intimidating but I can tell you if I did it you can too! This is my first shaker card ever, but it won't be the last because I love this technique! It's a really perfect way to draw attention to your image and add some fun at the same time.
Lenny Happy New Year and Lenny Cupcake images from StampFairy. They were colored in Copics and cut out. I glued the cupcake image onto a circle background for the shaker part of the card and Lenny with the balloon was glued on top of the shaker itself. I filled the shaker with seed beads that I had on hand. The papers are the "Grandma's Kitchen" collection from We R Memory Keepers - Simple Stripes, Dippity Dot and Rich Ribbon. I found these papers at my local Michael's store. The sentiment is stamped on the DP and cut out using Spellbinders' Ribbon Banners dies.
There are several tutorials out there on making shaker cards. I followed a tutorial I found HERE at the blog Spyder's Corner which I thought was pretty easy to follow. We also have a tutorial at StampFairy, which shows another way to create a shaker. Either way yields incredible results :)
