  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Use white cardstock of 4.5" x 5.5". Using the MFT die to cut a hole where u want the shaker to be.

    Step 2

    You get an inner square measuring 3" x 3"

    Step 3

    Use a regular square die that is slightly smaller at 2.5" to cut the border

    Step 4

    This is what you get.

    Step 5

    Cut another white cardstock measuring 3" x 3" to stamp the image

    Step 6

    Cut an acetate measuring 3" x 3"

    Step 7

    Finish colouring the stamped image. I used glossy accent on the heart to give it a shine!

    Step 8

    Cut a foam sheet measuring 4.75" x 5.75" and cut another square measuring 3" x 3". Make sure it aligns with the 1st square on the white card

    Step 9

    Add double sided adhesive to back of white card and adhere to foam sheet

    Step 10

    Adhere

    Step 11

    Cut another white cardstock measuring 9.5"(folded in half) x 5.75". This is your card base. Cut the 3" x 3" square again. Align with previous squares cut

    Step 12

    So you have the white card adhered to foam sheet that is adhered to white card base. Stamp caption.

    Step 13

    Use double sided tape behind foam sheet

    Step 14

    Add your "shakees" for your shaker card

    Step 15

    Close the card and align the shaker card to the inside of the card base and adhere

    Step 16

    Here's the card when opened. Tip: stamp your caption, in this case, You're My Type, on top of the image rather than below so that the shakees doesn't cover the words

    Step 17

    And here's the finished card! Happy Valentine's Day everyone!
