How to | Shaker Card with Sequins and Glitter11:30 PM
So, I'm not particularly a fan of interactive cards - that is, when I have to make them myself - but a shaker card with sequins and glitter? Yes, please!
I was commissioned to make this for a friend and thought I'd quickly document the steps. If you want to make a card with this technique, too, you can follow my tutorial here.
Step 1 - Fold a card from cardstock and die-cut a window into it.
Step 2 - Cut a piece of acetate to size leaving it at least 1/4 in than the window in your card base, then glue it down on the inside, e.g. with Glossy Accents.
Step 3 - Decorate the window and card base to your liking and find a piece of patterned paper to find behind the window.
Step 4 - Before you glue to patterned paper on the back of the window, make sure you leave an inch without adhesive or if you also use glue tape, leave the backing on this portion. This will be, where you will fill the window later. Note: The glue tape will help to keep the glitter inside the shaker window. If you plan to only use sequins a few dabs of glue to hold the paper in place are absolutely fine.
Step 5 - Sew around the edges of the die-cut window. Make sure you leave out the portion where there is no glue so far.
Step 6 - Fill the shaker window with sequins and glitter. When your finished remove the backing from the strip of glue tape.
Step 7 - Continue the sewing line around the window. Finished shaker window!
Thanks for coming by!
PS: Speaking of glitter and sequins, did you see Shanna's newest class "Sparkle"? That tiny sneak looks so fab already!
