Check out my Fun “Faker Shaker” Card!

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today I’m sharing a fun “Faker Shaker” card … Last week I shared the cards from the Saying Thanks Card Kit and during my demonstration (will share the video replay below) that I would create a card using those left over hearts that came off of one of the cards in the kit.

If you’ve seen the video, just bypass it because you know exactly what I’m talking about … If you haven’t grab a cup of coffee, sit back and enjoy.

I really love this kit … as it states, it’s perfect for NEW Crafters / Cardmakers, Busy Moms or Grandmas! Great to craft with your kids (thanks Barb) and they are nice to have on hand when you need a quick card!!

OK … Let’s get to this cutie! I used a “clear” medium envelope to create my shaker card, and all those hearts you see below, they will now be “inside” as the “shaker” for my card.

I cut the front of the cardbase used for the “heart” card down to 4″ x 5-1/4″ … it’s so colorful and coordinates with the envelopes from the KIT perfectly. Then I tucked it inside the “CLEAR” envelope … make sure that the adhesive flap goes towards the back.

You can save the back that was cut off for another card. Next I tucked all them hearts inside the envelope “in front of” the card front. The fact that they are white, really makes them stand out from the watercolor background.

You will need to wrap the excess of the envelope to the back. I use the Stampin’ Seal Plus as it lays nicely on the clear envelope and really holds it in place. Now you can remove the backing from the adhesive flap and pull that around the back as well. This encloses your hearts.

I wanted to add a ribbon behind my greeting so I used the Fresh Freesia Open Weave Ribbon. I attached the ends to the back of my “shaker” and then tied a bow and attached it with a Mini Glue Dot. I chose the Merci as my “thank you” … the greetings in the “Saying Thanks” Kit come in four different languages so it’s fun to find a way to use them as well. I attached the greeting over my ribbon using the Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Then I stamped the “FOR ALL YOU DO” from the Happiness Abounds stamp set … I used my Stampin’ Write Marker to lay color only on those words as it is a larger sentiment. Once inked up, I stamped it on Basic White and cut it out myself. Using the edge of my stampin’ dimensionals I popped it up to match the greeting height.

Now that the “shaker” card front is done, you can mount it onto your card base … I used a Basic Black card base to pull the black out of the greeting and creating a focal point. It draws your eye to it even though it is mounted onto such a colorful background. Interesting!! To finish off my card, I added 3 Fresh Freesia embellishments from the Opaque Adhesive Backed Gems.

Even though the kits were designed for NEW stampers, those of us who are avid stampers also like to have quick & easy cards on hand … and if we want, we can JAZZ them up a bit!!
