Happy Friday, all! When I first started creating shaker cards a few years ago, it was a bit intimidating! But I’m here today to show that shaker cards are super fun and EASY! By breaking it down to a clean and simple design, I hope it makes shaker cards more approachable.

I think shaker cards make the perfect birthday cards! So when I saw Studio Katia’s Satin Rainbow Confetti mix, I just knew I had to create a birthday card! The new Shellebration stamp set worked out perfectly, too. Isn’t that little turtle with the party hat so cute?
The key to keeping your shaker card super easy, is to use foam tape, double it back on itself, and then remove the release paper from both sides. This allows the foam to bend and morph to the exact shape of your shaker window. Once I heard of this tip (for a reader, too!), it completely changed shaker cards for me. Suddenly, shaker cards were so easy! The frustration of creating the shaker area was eliminated.
I hope you enjoy today’s video! Thanks for stopping by!
