Creating Kindness: Shaker Cards

Hello March!! So happy to see you. And I see you have brought some friends who are ready to get all shook up, hehe!

The guest teammate this month is Emma Goddard, be. sure to give her a sweet welcome. She is a sweet lady!!

This month, the Creating Kindness team is focusing on Shaker Cards. Who can resist a shaker card? No one I have ever met.

To be honest, I made this card yesterday. We hadn't even been home from vacation for more than 12 hours. I was tired and uninspired. But, I had taken a few stamped watercolor panels and my Daniel Smith watercolor palettes with on the vacation, and this panel was one I created on the cruise.

It stared at me, telling me it needed to become a card. And I had a moment of discovery! I could turn this pretty panel into a shaker card in two shakes and a wiggle! (that is one of my favorite things to say, BTW. Makes my patients smile every time! )

Here is how I did it:
  1. Use a double stitched rectangle die and cut out the center of the panel. 
  2. Cut a piece of plastic packaging saved from a stamp set envelope. You know, the soft and flexible stuff. Cut that a little smaller than the outer panel dimensions, and adhere it to the back, over the hole. 
  3. Glue pieces of coaster to the back around the hole. 
  4. Tape a couple loops of washi tape and tack the center of the panel to the back of the plastic, right side showing the front, then apply glue to the back of just the center panel. Line it up on the card front, and glue it down. 
  5. Lift the window panel off, wipe center panel and the back of the window with antistatic powder tool. Place a pile of shaker bits on top of the center panel. Glue the window panel  to card base, lined up over the center panel. 

I added a quick sentiment to the front, and it is all done! Not so intimidating, right!?

Don't forget to stop at the rest of the projects!
