I have taken another step on the ladder of card making, and this step is know as the Shaker Card Rung. Yes, after getting my hands on some recent sequin goodness from Pretty Pink Posh, I decided it was time to take the plunge. I know what you’re thinking: “But Cathy, how can someone who was goth in college make a turnaround in life to love shiny things?” All I can say is, stranger things have a happened.
Famous last words.
But look at all that room to grow!
I am in love with the finished card! I can’t stop shaking it (which apparently is the point of a shaker card!) That rainbow stenciled background was inspired by this video from card master Nichol Spohr.
While this card has a lot of steps, it’s actually pretty easy to create. Granted, I have no idea if the process I used to make the shaker is the way it’s done, but it worked for me!
The finished card size is 4.25 x 5.5. In the video, I said 4.5 x 5.5, probably because I was so geeked out at the shaker aspect, I lost my mind temporarily.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to annoy my husband with shaking noises. But honey, listen! It shakes!
