I'm back today on the Clear Scraps Blog to share a cute shaker card project. Clear Scraps has a wide variety of shaker designs for any holiday or occasion. They have added so many new designs to play with.
For my project, I chose the new "Onesie" baby shaker. You can get yours here Baby "Onesie" shaker
The first thing I did was assemble the shaker. I made some of my own confetti from the matching scraps of paper I has left over. I used a regular paper hole punch to make my confetti. If you have a baby design punch that would be fun to use also. I added some sequins, Doodlebug shaped flower/square pieces and also added some pastel colored beads! The possibilities are endless!
Next I took the bottom shaker piece and I traced it onto the piece of paper and cut it out. Then I glued my paper to the base shape. You can also paint or emboss the base if you wish. Trim any excess paper with an xacto knife. I also took the top chipboard layer and painted around the top edges with acrylic paint. Let dry.
Next you can start adhering your next chipboard layers and add adhesive to the back and place one on top of the other. Fill the inside of your shaker with whatever you chose. Then glue the acrylic sheet layer on top. Be sure to remove the protective film from both sides of your shaker before gluing it down. Add your last painted chipboard piece on top.
Now it's time to make your card. I started with a 7x5 inch white card. I choose one of the papers from Prima Marketing "Heaven Scent" collection and cut it to the same size as my card base. Then used glue to adhere my paper to my card. For the next card layer, I cut it slightly smaller than my first paper, leaving about 1/4 inch showing around the edge. I added some pop dots to the back of my second paper card layer, then adhered on top of my previous card layer.
Next you can decide how you want to decorate the front of your card, and where you want to place your shaker element. I fuzzy cut a few elements I wanted to use for my card. Then inked the edges.
I added pop dots to the back of my fuzzy cut pieces, including the little bird. I took a short piece of string and glued on the back of my baby piece before adhering it to my card. I added some Stickles glitter to the fur on the baby booties, and on the birdie wings. I also took a few Dazzle flower stickers and adhered them on top of the baby piece with the bow at the top. Lastly I added a few Prima Crystal gems and scattered them about on my card base.
I hope you enjoyed this shaker card project today and I have inspired you! I'm sure any mother to be, would love to receive a handmade card you created especially for them! Thank you for stopping by the Clear Scraps Blog today! Be sure to check out all the great products from Clear Scraps!
