Shaker Cards

We are looking at shaker cards this week and I hope that you like the variety of ways that we have created them for you, I must say I am excited by what the team have in store for you this week. The thing that they will all have in common if foam tape.

First this week we have a card from Gill

GillI know it is early for Christmas, but I am sure that some of you have started your cards already. Gill has used an old, but still available Francoise Collection stamp Christmas Trees.

The trees have been stamped in black and coloured.

The bit that I always find tricky about shaker cards is that the loose pieces get stuck on the tape at the bottom of the panel, so I think that Gill has been very clever in using the pattern on the paper to disguise any stuck pieces at the bottom of the panel.

I really like the way that Gill has created the shaker part in the centre of a square card, and used the same paper, which is an old Magenta one, which I think I have in my stash!

The beads that Gill has added make a really good finishing touch.

Don’t forget that Gill has step by step on Gill’s Crafty Journey.

Thanks for visiting see you soon!


One thought on “Shaker Cards

  1. Love shaker cards and have made quite a few recently. They are very “on trend” currently so looking forward to the Woodware team take on the theme. Gills card is very clever and uses the patterned paper to its best advantage. I can remember that design too!
