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.
Paper: Neenah Classic Crest – Natural White – Cover – 80lb smooth, Gold Poster Board
Accessories: Amazing Paper Grace Dies, Spellbinders Snowflake Snippets, Spellbinders Simply Said Alphabet , PL-001 Platinum™ Die Cutting And Embossing Machine with 8.5″ Platform, The Paper Studio – Pearls, Satin Ribbon
Happy weekend y’all!
I bought this Die Set from Christine in the UK after I saw it on her Spellbinder website …..thank you for another take on how to use it!
Love Your Blog!
Really beautiful card. I love shaker cards, particularly for children but that’s not to say adults don’t think they’re cool too!

Lots of love from Patricia xx
So sparkly and crisp and a little mysterious! Love it!! Thanks!!
Love this card Becca! It looks so elegant and beautiful!
Lovely. I don’t think I have seen this snowflake set before now. Shaky, shaky, shaky! Your link to MFT did not go to your “how to”.
Simply stunning! Of course, doing this in white and gold really brings out the beauty of the card. I’m simply having trouble seeing how each of the die cuts is secured. Silly me!
Thanks for sharing!
Simply beautiful!!! (As always)
Absolutely stunning! Off to search for the dies!
So beautiful, just love the card!! Thanks for sharing, be blessed.
Oh. My. Gosh! This is absolutely lovely, Becca. I don’t know how you never run out of ideas. Thank you for sharing this. You never cease to inspire me.
Woohoo! So much fun to see you expand just a little by making this shaker card. I love ?? Shaker cards! They just make me smile. ?
This is such an elegant version, perfect for your style of design. And I love this die set. As soon as I saw it I thought “shaker cards”! Seems like it will be a wonderful die set for Christmas this year.
Good morning Becca, oh my goodness this absolutely stunning? I love it!!!
Have a good one!!!
This is a wonderful, creative card!! I love everything about it! You are always so clever, Becca. Thank you for sharing your creativity and beauty!
This is BEAUTIFUL, BECCA! I TOO LOOOOOVE Shaker Cards/Interactive Cards! There are SO MANY DIFFERENT TYPES of “Interactive Cards!” I am ALWAYS LOOKING for new ones! But, this Shaker Card is SO ELEGANT & JUST GORGEOUS with the delicate gold snow flakes, AND the the blocked areas! ;) Yep, I do believe you are RIGHT about the letters being glued on AFTER you forgot to stamp! It is the easiest! LOL ;)(I think that goes with being excited about the card you are making! I do it too!) ;)
I simply adore your cards and am gradually adding to my die stash. I love the combinations of gold and white. What gold paper do you use? The craft stores rarely have it.
Your bows always are so beautiful. Do you have a tutorial anywhere on your site showing how you make your bows?
I found the videos on how you tie your bows.
This card is so delicate & elegant!
Becca, would you share where you get your gold poster board?
I’ve been unable to find any.
I have no words for this!!! Took my breath away. I am continued in utter awe of your talents.
Much Love and Happiness be returned to you as you give to Us!
Beautiful card Becca!!!
