Today I’m sharing with you a Shaker card made from the Trimming the Town Suite. This wasn’t a suite I was initally drawn to but after seeing what other demonstrators and crafters have made I knew I had to have a play.
I’m really pleased with how this shaker turned out as its so long since I made one and as there’s no stamping involved it didn’t take long to put together.
To make the shaker part of the card you will need to cut two ovals (or circle if you prefer) which are the same size. For one, the background I cut my image from the one of the scene sheets in the Trimming the Town DSP, the other oval was cut from window sheet.
To make the red frame I took the matching scalloped oval die and also an oval which was a size small than the first and ran them through the Cut and Emboss machine together so I was left with a thin frame. I adhered the window sheet to the back of my fram using the Fine-Tip Glue Pen.
Next take the foam adhesive strips and run one right around the edge of the background oval. Next the oval fill with the Snowflake Sequins and stick the framed oval on top, now you have your shaker.
For the card background cut layer of the snowflakde dsp to 9.5cm x 13.9cm . Wrap a length of the Poppy Parade Ribbon from the All The Trimmings pack around the centre of the paper and adhere on the back with Tear & Tape. Adhere to a Poppy Parade layer measuring 10cm x 14.4cm before adhering to the card base.
I’ve left this card without a greeting but if you wanted to add on then the Trimming the Town DSP has a wonderful sheet full of greeting strips that you could cut up and use.
