I was always afraid I'd do it wrong.... a Shaker Card that is... so I thought no better way to learn than to just DO IT!
I created this Detailed Santa Shaker Card for one of my stamping days with Cindee, and I love all the layers of Glimmer paper, shimmer and shine! I am NOT a glitter girl.. so adding the loose glitter to the "shaker recipe" nearly put me over the edge.. but I did it! :) And it's SOOOOOO pretty!
The Detailed Santa thinlit die is a WINNER.. it's so amazing.. the detail in the design is gorgeous! Find it on page 11 in the 2016 Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog or #141836 in my online store.
The Best Wishes for the season stamp comes from the Holly Berry Happiness set (pg 27 Holiday catalog #142061), and the round Celebrate stamp is found in the Here's to Cheers set, (pg 39 Holiday catalog, #142098 wood, and #142101 clear mount).
I've got LOTS of step by step photos below to show you what I did to create this great card.
Patty's Shaker Card Filler Recipe:
First, here is the "recipe" for the glitter filler in the shaker card. Of course you can add anything you want, but this is what I tried.. equal parts of Silver Glitter, Mica Flakes and Metallic Sequins. You'll find these embellishments on pages 177 and 181 in the annual catalog and on page 41 in the Holiday catalog. Put them all in an empty embellishment container, and shake it up, then dump it into your shaker card.
Below: Step by Step: the 8 steps I used to create the Detailed Santa Shaker Card:
I started with the folded Real Red Card, then die cut the borders on the Shimmery White panel, stamped the greeting, and layered it onto the folded red card. Then I attached the Real Red Glimmer paper with multipurpose glue, and added the adhesive foam strips. OK, now you are ready for step 1 below..
As I mentioned.. I'm really not a glitter girl.. so when I opened my glitter (no, I had never opened it before!) I LAUGHED out loud at the "sealed for your protection" labeling!! :)
Below: the supplies and dimensions I used for my Santa Shaker Card:
I just had to add this cute celebrate stamped image.. I love how the swirlies coordinate with the swirlies in the Santa Beard!!
This stamp is found in the Here's to Cheers stamp set, pg 39 in the Holiday catalog. It is die cut with the Layering Circles framelits and layered onto a scalloped real red circle, also die cut with the Layering Circle framelits.
And then... check this out... look how pretty this card is even without the "shaker card" layer... you can just put the Detailed Santa on top of the red glimmer paper and it's still amazing!! We tried it both ways, and loved it both ways... in the photo below, you really can't tell but we did put the window sheet over the red glimmer paper.. you don't have to.. but it looks really neat!
Hope you enjoyed the Shaker Card today!!
