Christmas Shaker Card




Hi everyone, it’s Cheryl here, and today I’m showing you a shaker card I made using The Gift of Giving Collection.

This card looks complicated, but didn’t take very long to make.

I began by cutting my design paper to the size of the cardbase, ensuring the foilage pattern would be at the top.

I then foiled that with the Oval Card Maker Frames, which are now unavailable, and my Go Press and Foil machine.
If you’re lucky enough to have this wonderful set, great.
Otherwise you can use any other dies that might be suitable. (You just need an opening on the front.)



Next I used a tape runner on the inside of the design paper, and placed clear acetate over that tape, again, on the inside.

Next I added double-sided foam tape all the way around the opening, on the inside once more. Ensure that all pieces join together, otherwise some of the shaker pieces will come out.

Next add your shaker pieces into that cavity. I added some clear sequins and a mix of gold and white glitter. Don’t add too much or they won’t move around when you seal it off.

I make my shaker cards a little different to other crafters.  After removing the backing paper from the foam tape, I then add another piece of acetate. This seals the shaker pieces and stops them falling out. Since they are now sealed in a clear pocket, it is far easier to place your image where you want it. I do this by adding tape runner over the second acetate piece.


If you would like to see a video of this technique, check this one out on my YouTube channel.


The image I used is a pull-apart from The Gift of Giving Collection (sheet #C0727900).

*Note: You can find smaller versions of these in The Gift of Giving Ephemera Pack, but you will need to make your opening smaller.

Once everything is in place, and you are happy, add the topper to your base card.

And that’s it – you are done!
