GORGEOUS SEQUINS! Fast Shaker Card Idea – Make a Card Monday #284

Happy Monday, all! Today I made a quick and easy shaker card using a gorgeous assortment of sequin mixes from Lucy’s Cards. I also used a new die and coordinating stamp set from Waffle Flower!

(Wondering what I used in this video? Everything is linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post, or in the text below. Compensated affiliate links used when possible).

I first die cut the Big Dots die out of white cardstock and stamped the “Happy Birthday” from the Big Dots Sentiment stamp set in black ink.

To create the shaker area, I adhered clear window plastic to the back of the die cut. Then I folded foam tape back on itself (to create a double layer of adhesive), and then cut narrow strips of foam tape to go around the outside of the die cut. I also added horizontal rows of foam tape to separate the rows of dots.

I used five sequin mixes from Lucy’s Cards (some are not for sale anymore, so I’m including links to similar color mixes): Conch, Sweet Shop, Peppermint, Caribbean, and Aurora Borealis.

Thanks for stopping by today! I’ll be back soon with another card video. :)

    Adorable and love your use of the rainbow within rainbow sequins. You’d have a little more space on the edges if you cut it on the full size of the front of the card rather than leaving a frame?

    Gorgeous shaker card Kristina, I love all the beautiful sequin mixes.
    Thank you so much for showing this idea.

    I have a piece of alcohol inked (rainbow style) Yupo that I punched some little circles from, but saved for another use when I found one (never throw away those Yupo scraps LOL). This could be it!!!! It’s a 4 x 6 so I can cut it down to a perfect card size. I think it will turn into a colorful birthday card for someone. Some larger holes in places and some sequins to shake it up and thank you! You inspire in many ways! :)
