It's never too early to get a start on your holiday cards. Today I have a fun, interactive card to share with you. It will have you thinking cool thoughts during these hot, humid days.
Shaker cards are so much fun and they are super easy to make. Everyone who receives a shaker card is immediately WOW'd by it! They will think that you spent hours making the card, but the truth is that you can create this card in under an hour. Just let everyone think you spent hours making it.
I love using the thick Whisper White card stock for a nice, clean card base. It makes the Dapper Denim on this card pop.
Inside of the shaker portion of the card, I stamped the snowflakes in Smoky Slate. If you wanted a more subtle effect, you could stamp them off first before making your final stamped image. That would make a very light shade of Smoky Slate and will bring even more attention to your sentiment.
To create the "confetti" for inside of the shaker, I used the star confetti punch and some silver glimmer paper. The stars are the perfect size for a shaker card, and the glimmer paper adds sparkle! Then I quickly added another sentiment and some additional snowflakes to decorate the interior of the card.
TIP : Do your interior stamping first. That way if you make a mistake, you can just stamp an new card base rather than having to take the shaker element off and transferring it to a new card.
