Rainbow Shaker Card and Video Tutorial

Cathy ZielskeCards, Tutorials26 Comments


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.

I even laughed a few months back, seeing this bead tray on one of Jennifer McGuire’s videos thinking, “Well there’s one thing I’ll never need.”

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!

    That card looks absolutely AH-MAY-ZING!!!!!! Wow!!! Now the hard decision of who to send it to starts (and figuring out who will appreciate and love it the most). *whispers* I probably would keep that one for myself! πŸ˜›

      Ha! I know… part of me wants to keep it to always remember the First Shaker Card. πŸ™‚

    Love this. Tittle. πŸ™‚ Tilde is used in the spanish language. I say this with love, not to correct. I like to spread the trivia. No reason I should keep this to myself.

    I laughed during this whole video, but it was definitely laughing with you! You were so funny and real – loved your instructions, they were very easy to follow! It’s such a beautiful card. If this is your beginning work, can’t wait for your journey to continue. Congrats. (I’ve heard Laura Bassen call the dot over the “i” a tittle, I believe.)
