Hanging Bauble Shaker Card

Following on from yesterday's bauble shaker card, today's card takes the oncvept one step further.

"Peace on Earth"

An aperture is cut in the front of the card in a size larger than the bauble. Holographic silver card behind the aperture provides a nice backdrop.

Two baubles are stamped and heat-embossed on white card.


Each of the stamped baubles is placed behind acetate and a bauble frame cut from black and silver card, with foam tape between the frame and the white card to provide space for the shaker elements. I like to use a mixture of seed beads and sequins in colours suitable to match the card.


The two bauble shakers are sandwiched together with a length of silver twine between them and glued together with PVA. The sandwich is left to dry before fixing into the aperture in the card by hanging from a brad.


As a final embellishment, a couple more baubles are stamped & heat-embossed then diecut and fixed to the front of the card with Pinflair to raise them a little.

OK, that's the end of the shaker cards for now. I'm not saying there won't be more this year, but I'm not saying there will be either :-) Have a great weekend everyone. Maddy x
