Shaker Card

I used an adorable stamp set from Waltzing Mouse Stamps to create a super fun shaker card. The set I used is called A Cottage Home. I love this set as depending on how you colour the image it can be a general house, a christmassy house, a haunted house, the possibilities are endless!! This technique is very easy but looks great….

Step 1 – Colour your image as you like. I used Inktense pencils on mine. Cut it out.

Step 2 – Using a craft knife cut out the windows. Partially cut out the door so that it opens.

Step 3 – Using acetate cover the windows and door opening from the back.

Step 4 – Using foam tape tape all around the edges of the image. You want to make sure there are no gaps in the foam pieces, you need to create a full seal. Mine doesn’t look pretty but it does the job!

Step 5 – Fill with beads, sequins or confetti. Make sure whatever you fill it with is not any taller than your foam wall. Cut a piece of backing paper to the size of your foam wall. This will be the back of the house and keep all the beads in place.

Step 6 – Admire your house!

Step 7 – Prepare your card base. I used a fun mix of pink, yellow, grey and orange striped DP and matted this onto grey card. I then created a grey card banner to mount the house on. I created some ribbon loops with some fun polkadot ribbon. I also added a sentiment on a strip of pink paper.

Step 8 – The finished card….Front door closed over….

This is such a fun way to get more out of your stamps!
