Hi Stamping Friends!
It's the last day to register for my Cool Treats Stamp Camp & Sale-a-Bration. Don't miss out!
The sweet Sprinkles Embellishments from the Cool Treats suite of products are sensational for shaker cards! Today I'm sharing the simple shaker we'll be making at our Stamp Camp! Attendees will have plenty of leftover Sprinkles & Designer Series Paper from their class kit to make even more shaker cards on their own!
Hope you can join us at my local class or with a Class-To-Go Kit!
Cool Treats Cherry On Top Shaker Cards
Shaker cards are so fun and the Sprinkles embellishments, with its tiny sequins and mini pearls, makes it easy to create a quick interactive card! I wanted to keep this card simple, putting the main focus on the shaker and the coordinating DSP.
Background Basics—This card begins with a Pool Party card base. I adhered the 3-3/4" x 5" Tasty Treats Designer Series Paper to the 4" x 5-1/4" Early Espresso layer with SNAIL. I applied the adhesive all over the back, so the DSP would be secure even after cutting out the circle.
Shaker Window—Next, I die cut the 2-1/8" circle shape from the front layer using the Layer Circles Framelits. I used some Tear & Tape Adhesive to secure the Window Sheet to the back. I also tied a double-knot of Pool Party Stitched Satin Ribbon around the layer.
Shaker Sentiment—I colored directly onto the Cool Treats stamp with an Early Espresso and a Watermelon Wonder marker, then stamped the greeting onto a 3" x 3" piece of Whisper White. To position it correctly onto the card base, I added some SNAIL to the back of the greeting, lined up the window layer over the top (without adhesive), then centered the layers onto the Pool Party card base.
Shaker Sprinkles—I used Foam Strips around the perimeter of the backside of the window to make the shaker sides. TIP: You'll want to make sure there are no gaps in foam—this is how the sprinkles are contained! I added more Dimensionals all over the entire back of this layer, so it's all popped up when mounted.
To assemble, I placed about a teaspoon of Sprinkles sequins over the top of the sentiment in a heap. Then, I peeled away the backing paper from all of the foam and carefully mounted the window layer over the top of the sprinkles & sentiment layer. Make sure that the foam is secure all the way around the window, then shake it to test it out!
Two Cool—My second version just has the background card stock colors flip-flopped and a Peekaboo Ruched Ribbon instead.
Inside The Card—Don't forget to decorate the inside a Cool Treats greeting in Early Espresso, some Tasty Treats Washi Tape and a little Silver Foil spoon, die cut with the Frozen Treats Framelits! So sweet!
