Altenew | Easy Two Layer Shaker Card

Hi friends!

Today I want to share an idea for an easy two layer shaker card. Shakers can be a bit more time consuming and even intimidating than regular cards. At least they always intimidate me. I can spend in fact more time working on a card with complex masking or another time consuming technique, but still shakers for me seem much more difficult.

In the card I’m sharing today though I used one tool that helped me to divide the time spend on a shaker twice. And this tool is the Dog Rose Panel Dies.  After die-cutting these two panels almost all elements of the card were already done (boom!).

I die cut the top Dog Rose A Panel out of a white cardstock panel and the Dog Rose B Panel out of a light teal cardstock panel. These dies die cut rectangular panels with beautiful intricate floral design that are meant to be layered. In order to make a shaker I needed to connect those rectangles with the cardstock panels they were cut out off. To do so I inserted the die cuts into the corresponding panels and taped them together on the back.

After that I adhered piece of acetate on the back of the white panel – the front/top layer of the shaker. Then I adhered pieces of acetate to the front and back of the teal panel – the middle part of the shaker. I adhered acetate to the front and back to prevent shaker filler fro getting under the die cut elements.

Next I foam mounted the white panel onto the teal one placing some shaker filler inside. For the filler I choose white and teal sequins and seed beads.

Then I foam mounted this structure onto a dark teal cardstock, also placing some shaker filler inside.

Lastly I white embossed a sentiment from the Birthday Greetings Stamp Set onto a Jet Black Cardstock strip and popped it up onto the card.

Thanks to this wonderful die bundle I was able to easily create an interesting two layer shaker with very little effort.
