Hello! Marybeth here today! I have a Christmas shaker card to share with you. Using this beautiful: Seed Snowflake Joy die along with : Tidings of Joy clear stamp set both from Poppystamps.
I cut two panels. I added acetate to the top layer and vellum to the bottom layer to hold the sequins in place before adhering to the main card.
There are many ways to make a shaker card. For mine I took the time to have thinly cut foam tape around each letter and snowflake to keep the sequins in a separate place. You could also cut about four layers and glue each together.
I try to leave the backing on till the very end so that the sequins wont stick to the foam tape. Right before I fill with sequins I use my embossing buddy so the sequins wont stick to the sides. Be careful not to bump your card or you could have many sticking to the tape. Once filled I put the panel with the vellum on top, then place on the front of the card.
Thank you for the visit today! I hope you have a wonderful and blessed Christmas.
