Easy Peasy Shaker Card

Happy Wednesday! Nicole here and I am back with a quick and easy shaker card to share. Shaker card has been really popular in cardmaking and I thought I would share a hassle-free way to create them!

Shaker cards can be intimidating to create so I wanted to show you a way that you can easily make them and also keep the card clean and simple. Also, stretching stamp sets is a fun way to get more for the bang and I am showing you exactly that in this project.

- To create a flat, smooth, and nicely dimension-ed shaker card, try using fun foam pads instead of foam tapes. This is much more easier way to put together a card.
- Add adhesives first on to the layer before adding sequins to the shaker area! It helps so the small embellishments don't go flying out everywhere.
- To maximize the use of your current stamp sets, try putting sentiments together as a focal point of a card. Great way to get more bang for your buck!
