Easy Shaker Card Tutorial Using Stampin' Up!'s Shaker Frames

Shaker cards are making there comeback, and Stampin' Up! has the perfect product to make them! The shaker frames are not a new item, I've had mine for awhile now, but in this photo tutorial, you'll see that they work on any shape!

The first step is to die cut your pieces. I've used the Deco Labels framelits here, and die cut one piece of Lullaby dsp, then layered it on my card front and die cut again creating the hole in the card. I also die cut two white frames with the same die and one size larger.

Flip the dsp over and adhere a piece of window sheet over the opening. You can see how many foam adhesive shaker frames you get in a package! I took the second largest frame and cut it in half. I adhered it to the window sheet following along it's shape. Repeat again for the sides of the die cut opening, making sure the ends are touching.

Put the sequins inside the well. Peel off the backing of the foam frames and adhere another window sheet to it. Make sure it is attached well. Add foam dimensionals around the outside edges.

I die cut another label in white and stamped my greeting. To get it centered, I turned it right side down and centered it on the window die cut side, then folded the back of the card over to adhere it. Adhere one of the frames to the inside window.

Adhere the other white frame to the front, and the dsp panel to the card front. This type of shaker card allows you to see the inside of the card. Stampin' Up!'s shaker frames are all circle shaped, but you can easily cut them apart to create any shape!

Thanks for checking out my tutorial, and I hope you give this a try!!
