Shaker Graduation Card

Making shaker cards can be quite addicting, I think…

A family friend has graduated from high school and is going to Michigan State in the Fall.  I created his graduation card using Emerald Envy to represent the colors of his new school.

The background is the neutrals color designer series paper.  I used the large number framelits for the year, and I had leftover sequins from the December paper pumpkin kit — yes, I separated out all the red sequins!

RAWR! Shaker Cards…

Made some really fun shaker cards using the No Bones About It stamp set.  This card does take a little preparation, but the reward is sooooo worth it!!

Your top layer will have the window sheet adhered underneath to keep the confetti inside.   Then dimensionals (I used leftover strips from the December Paper Pumpkin, but the outside trim of the dimensionals can be used, or just many dimensionals close together) are added to create depth.  This layer is 1/4″ smaller than the layer beneath it. Stamp images on layer beneath it.  Place confetti on top of image and make sure it’s inside the window of the top layer.

This whole piece is adhered to the front of the card.
