Today I am sharing a fun shaker card with a twist. The shaker element can be removed! I learned this cool trick from Connie Stewart.
The layers on my shaker element are cut as follows:
3 7/8” x 3 7/8” Whisper White Cardstock
3 ¾” x 3 ¾” Real Red Cardstock. I used the Seasonal Decorative masks and the Real Red Glitter embossing powder to create the sparkly embossed stripes on the layer. Love this!
The polka dot crumb cake background on the inside of the shaker element is 2 7/8” x 2 7/8” designer series paper. I cut out one of the gingerbread houses from one of the prints in the designer paper pack and adhered it to the background. Such a fun way to use the designer paper.
I used the Layering Squares Framelits to create the Real Red, Whisper White and Early Espresso frames on the front of the shaker element. I added a 2 ¾” x 2 ¾” piece of Window Sheet behind the frames and then added the Foam Adhesive strips along the window opening. I added some Mica flakes before adhering the background piece to the foam to close the window. Looks like it’s snowing!
To create the easel on the back of the shaker element I cut a 1” x 7 ¾” strip of Whisper White cardstock. I scored the strip at 2 ½”, 3 ½”, 4 ½” and 7”.
Fold the strip as shown and adhere the top together. I used Tear & Tape to be sure I had a strong hold. I then adhered the easel strip to the back of the shaker element.
I cut a slit between the 1 ½” x 2 ¾” marks 2 3/8” over from the front bottom edge of the 4 ¼” x 1” Real Red card base. The easel adhered to the back of the shaker element will slide down in the slit.
Super cute right?
