Today I’m sharing a fun shaker card with a oldie but goodie technique (that is actually totally new to me!) that I learned from my friend Gina of Gina K. Designs. The technique? Creating your own patterns using the Scor-Buddy. Today is also the release day for the brand new Rest and Refresh release from Simon Says Stamp! Check out the full release here to see all the new products.
There is something so lovely about the tone on tone effect you get when you use any embossing folder on cardstock, but I do not have a pin striped folder, so I created my own embossed panel with the Scor-Buddy and the scoring tool. So easy to do!
For my shaker window, I stacked a bunch of foam tape cut into pieces. In past videos, I’ve done the old take your piece of foam tape and fold it in half method, but sometimes, it’s too sticky if you put it folded side in towards your shaker, which I always do and the result? My sequins stick to the foam tape, even if I try and add powder to that folded edge. But literally in the past day I realized, if you place the sticky folded side away from the shaker window, well heck, that might be a better solution. Long story short: there are many ways to make a shaker. I chose one and you can see it in the video, but upon rethinking it, I think I’ll go back to the fold tape in half method.
Here’s a better look at all the sentiments included in the Say It All Friend stamps I used for my card.
Here’s the clip showing you how I created this card project:
