Squeal . . . don’t you just love shaker cards? Oh, I sure do. Good morning sweet friends, today I’m using a favorite new die set from Spellbinders – Snowflake Snippets – one of the many new holiday dies. I mused about what I might make and tinkered with a couple of things and then it whispered ‘Shaker’ :-) Since I loved the idea, off I was to see if I had glitter or something fun to pour inside. So here’s the truth this was easier than the cards I normally make, just dies, acetate, foam tape and glitter. It has been a while since I’ve made one . . . okay . . . years, but there are lots of great tutorials out there for basic shaker card making – here’s one I did HERE for MFT Stamps a while back and I followed the same steps today.
What to do after you put your shaker card together and decided you should have stamped first? You grab your favorite letters and glue a word down, lol! I particularly like this alphabet Simply Said Alphabet, and the word Joy seems to be a good fit and I didn’t have to risk goofing up my card.
