Forest Shaker Card Tutorial

Hi friends! I hope you are well and that you had a good weekend. We got quite a bit of snow and the boys are happy. Today I have a shaker card to share with you.


We have a Shake It Up theme at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog this week. I am looking forward to seeing all the projects. Don't miss the fun shaker project by January guest designer Anita Rao

One of the first cards that I made was a shaker card and I still love making them. This  week, I made a forest themed shaker. By changing the colors you can easily change it into a winter scene instead, but I felt like using shades of green today. Shaker cards are such fun and will always bring a smile to the recipient.

Die cut six pine trees with the Poppy Stamp Evergreen Trio set and ink with Rustic Wilderness and Pine Needles.

Stamp the background with the SSS Old Letter Background stamp and Green Leaf ink. This gives a nice texture to the background.

The main sentiment is a Theories Quote Chip which was inked with Rustic Wilderness and coated with a layer of Glossy Accents.

The second sentiment was stamped with one of the stamps from Anna's Flowers and the Green Leaf ink.

I also used two butterflies from Tim Holtz Field Notes Snippets.

The shaker was backed with a paper from Tim's Field Notes Ephemera pack, which had wood themed illustrations.

I like the combination of Rustic Wilderness and Pine Tree Distress Ink. Mount two of the trees with foam tape.

Shaker cards are a little hard to photograph because of all the moving and shiny parts. There are a couple of snowflake sequins in the mix, but they might also be flowers.

I like adding mica flakes to shakers and since they are usually smaller than sequins, they mix well together.
