Bauble Shaker Card

A bauble shaker card is much easier to make than the snowglobes I've been sharing lately, and if you fancy having a go at a shaker card, this is a good one to start with.


The stamp is from a set that came free with this month's issue of Simply Cards and Papercraft. I stamped in black archival and heat-embossed with clear holographic powder, then cut out with a larger die than usual to leave room to stick down the acetate.

Fix a thin layer of foam tape all around the outside of the stamped image.

Cut a matching aperture in the outer card (the black and silver card above) and cut a larger diecut from acetate, then glue the acetate behind the outer card with glossy accents.

Fill the stamped image with seed beads, then stick the foam tape to the acetate. I add some more foam tape behind the outer card to fix to a card front.

I hope you can follow that! If not, let me know in the comments section and I'll endeavour to do a picture tutorial.

Entered for the following challenges:
