How To Create A Stunning Summer Shaker Card

Hi all

Today i have a fun summer themed shaker card to share today. The papers are from the Summer Feelings collect avalible from Cherish the memory.

Start off by covering a 6 x6 card with blue paper and then half the card with the wood effect paper.

To create the shaker box you just need a set of nesting dies. Choose the size you want the box to be and pop the smaller nesting die inside the larger one to make a frame. Cut out two frames from paper and craft foam. If the craft foam is a distracting colour you can paint over it with acrylic paint.

Next cut out a sheet of pattetened paper for the base using the largest die and again out of acetate for the window.

Glue the craft foam frame to the base and leave to dry before adding micro beads and glitter shapes.

Seal the bax with the acetate top and once that has dried, add the frame cut from pattetened paper.

Adhere the bix to the catd and then glue cheese cloth around it like a frame.

Add micro beads, craft stones and die cuts around the cheese cloth frame.

You can leave the chese cloth as it is or dab blue ink over it to add a bit of colour. I used watered down acrylic paint on mine.
