It’s Stephanie [IG: @beautybystarlet] back again on the Mommylhey blog with an exciting DIY Shaker Card post using the “YOLO” and “Royalty” stamp sets along with the gorgeous sequins from the April Little Bits Box!!
If you haven’t heard of shaker cards yet, you’re in for a real treat!
I picked out scrapbooking cardstock to match my Mommylhey sequins.
If you have a die cutting maching, this would be the time to use it! <3 If not, no worries! If you have a circle hole punch of two different sizes you can definitely make this work as well. I decided I wanted rounded edged shaker cards so I made one cutout with a hole (front side) and one cutout without a hole (back side). Since I am making two shaker cards today, you’ll see double the supplies in this photo. As for the rings, you’ll want to cutout 5 per card out of a cardstock of your choice along with one circle cutout in acetate paper.
Next, add some glue to the backside of the front of your card with the cutout. I used tacky glue to circle around the opening and then laid down my clear acetate paper.
The following steps are simple! Add some glue around the outer border of the clear acetate and start stacking those rings! You’ll do this a total of 5 times since you’ll have 5 rings. Next, add those sequins in!
Now, back to our stamped images! I used the adorable princess girl from the YOLO stamp set and colored her in with my favorite copic markers!
For my first shaker card, I decided to put the princess inside of the window. I decided to glue her to the back part of the shaker card in this first example.
In my second shaker card, I decided to stamp one of the sentiments inside! I used the “You are Royalty” (Royalty) stamp with the Mommylhey “Sky” Pigment Ink for a beautiful finish. Repeat steps 1-3 to create the front side as we did in the previous shaker card.
TA- DA!!!! That’s it! Shaker cards are beautiful accents to all occasions! Use them as cards, gift tags, name cards or even room decor!
