How to Create a Layered Shaker Card | Lydia’s Crafty Corner Video Tutorial

by Lydia Evans

Hello there everyone! Lydia here. Today I'll be sharing how to create a fun layered shaker element on your cards. I'll be using All the Hearts Die Set to create it.

20200110 103906How to create a layered shaker card

To start, I cut the large heart from All the Hearts Die Set into place on a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ panel of Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock. I then ink blended the panel using Cotton Candy, Coral Berry, and Ruby Red Inks. To add a little more interest to it, I added splatters using water and Pure White and Iridescent Ink Sprays. Once this was dry, I flipped it over and started to create the shaker element.

20200110 103939First up was to add a piece of acetate. When that was in place, I added a wall around it and added in some sequins. I then added a piece of vellum on top that I had cut the smaller hearts from All the Hearts Die Set into. As there were little cut-outs in the vellum, I added another piece of acetate. I then added another wall of foam tape and added more sequins. Once this was done, I added a panel of cardstock to complete the shaker element.
