Description :
Surprise your Valentine with a beautiful shaker card! Here’s how you can make one!!
STEP 1
Cut the Card/chart paper into the desired size and fold it into a card. Cut a design sheet into the same size as the chart paper. I have used the “Love in Paris” – premium edition from papericious which is available in the Hobby Ideas store.
STEP 2
For the frame of the shaker card, I picked up this beautiful felt sticker again from the Hobby Ideas store. Cut another piece of chart paper and a vinyl sheet to the same size as that of the felt sticker.
STEP 3
Trace out the center portion of the felt sticker onto the chart paper.
STEP 4
Cut out the traced portion using a paper knife. This is the visible area where we will have the shaker elements.
STEP 5
Stick the felt sticker by neatly aligning it with the cut portion. The felt sticker is self adhesive. Furthermore, stick this onto the vinyl sheet using Fevicol.
STEP 6
Prepare the card base by sticking the design sheet onto the card paper. On this card base, stick the cut out portion of the chart paper(from step 4) using Fevicol.
STEP 7
Use a double sided tape to work around the chart paper cutout. Make sure that you have sealed all the edges so that the embellishments donot fall out. Refer to the image.
STEP 8
Throw in some embellishments. There are a variety of embellishments available in the Hobby Ideas store!
STEP 9
Peel off the exposed side of the double sided tape and stick the Felt sticker frame onto it.
STEP 10
Further embellish the card using embellishments of your choice. It could be sequins, stones, half pearls, crystal, etc. Use Fevicol to stick these.
STEP 11
Using Rangeela paper glitter- Red, you can write a small message on the surface of the card.
STEP 12
And your Valentine’s day shaker card is ready!!
