Thanks — Sequin Shaker Card

Hi everyone!

When I saw this amazing sequin shaker card from Laura Bassen, I knew I had to make one. Even her very cheerful and happy process video in making the shaker card drew me in.

I have never made a shaker card before but with the fast popularity sequins are gaining, I knew it was a definite must to create.

I didn’t have the die cut that Laura used from Kelly Purkey so I had to improvise.

Here is my card —

and the front panel with the sequins spread out

Thanks Shaker Front Panel

 

I started this card with a standard size card folded on the top from some Bazzill card stock in Patina. I die cut the 3rd biggest frame from the Sizzix Majestic Labels #2 on some polka dot paper from the Doilies 6×6 paper pad from Ki Memories. I also diecut the same shape from fun foam to use as the dimension for the sequins. I placed a small sheet of acetate to the back of the patterned paper panel.

For the sentiment, the die cut the Simon Says Stamp “thanks” die from some Blue Calypso paper from Bazzill and placed on top of the acetate. The die that Laura used had a built in sentiment, the thanks die cut acted as the built in sentiment.

Putting the card together was a struggle because I did not plan ahead for adhesives. I started with the card base, then the foam piece. I put some mixed pastel sequins I’ve had forever in my stash then the front panel with the acetate. I used my Xyron sticker maker to put some adhesive on the thanks die cut and adhered it to the center of the acetate.

That’s it for this card. Thanks for reading.
