Hello crafty friends!
I have another video for you today – and its a shaker style valentines card. For this video, i used a technique with funky foam (also called fun foam or craft foam) to help build up the layering around the aperture, as the die i used was quite intricate. This is a technique that the awesome Jennifer Maguire used in this Inked Shaker Card video – check it out. It was a fun guest blog for Kristina Werner’s site. You should definitely pop on over to check out both of these crafty ladies.
I also have a tip for any UK crafters who are interested in shaker cards – i picked up 10 bottles of seed beads for £4 at a local Tiger store, and they come in the cutest little glass corked bottles! So Cute!
Here’s the video:
(did you notice the new intro and music! YEAY!) <3 If you are interested in making shaker cards, you should also check out the blog and YouTube Channel of Nichol Maguouirk, who is the shaker card queen!
The best tip for shaker cards that i picked up from Nichol, is to use the rectangle dies from Lawn Fawn to create the elements for your card. This makes the whole process so much easier, especially assembly. I have both the large stitched rectangles and small stitched rectangles – they are probably my must used dies! They are the best for creating framed shaker cards!
Thanks for joining me, and i have another video coming soon, this time using GELATOS! oooohhhh!
