My first Shaker Card

I've recently seen many shaker cards and decided to make one.  The card is 5.5 x 4.25.


I used the following to make the card:
  • Mama Elephant Make a Wish stamp set
  • Stampendous Detailed Silver and Gold embossing power
  • Spellbinders circle die
  • Various colored sequins
  • Martha Stewart Iridescent Hearts and Stars glitter
To make the card: 
  1. For the front of the card, cut a piece of patterned paper to 5.5 x 4.25. 
  2. Using the Spellbinders circle dies, select a die that is large enough for the stamp.  Decide where to cut the circle on the pattern paper, and cut the circle.
  3. Stamp the sentiment on the card front (I used the pattern paper as a template as to where to stamp)
  4. Back the circle with acetate.
  5. From the Make a Wish stamp set, randomly stamp stars with Versamark, and emboss with gold and silver.
  6. Using foam tape, tape around the circle, making sure that there are no gaps (or the sequins and glitter will fall out!)
  7. I added the sequins and glitter to the card front, making sure that they were clustered around the sentiment
  8. Line up the patterned patter to the front of card and attach it firmly.
  9. Since it seemed that there was more needed to the front of the card, I added some additional sequins.
