Hello Everyone! Stephanie here sharing my shaker card I created used BPM stamps designed by Pam Bray. I have only made a few shakers in the past and this one is by far my most successful :) No shaker contents stuck on the sides! I love the sketchiness of these stamps. They work perfectly for this shaker but would also be amazing in any of your mixed media projects as well. So lets jump into the process...
versa mark ink
Begin with a 4x6 white cardstock and spray some inks on it. (blue and red).
Then splatter white ink on top. Let this dry.
Stamp the circle scribble with versa mark ink all over the background. Dry.
Take some 4th of July sticker sayings and place around the background. Keep the edge of the card blank.
Stamp Bald eagle on white cardstock and cut out. Set aside till the end. Now make the top part for the shaker postcard. Cut out a 4x6 piece of pattern paper. Next cut a window from that. Cut a 4x5 piece of acetate and glue it to the pattern paper.
Take your foam tape and run it around the pattern paper. I did 2 layers. Add sequins. Use colors that go together. Peel the backing off the foam tape and stick the bottom layer that was worked on earlier.

Hello, hello! Samantha here and today I'm going to show you how to make a shaker card. Shaker cards are my favorite cards to make.
I know that they can seem really intimidating at first but I assure you that once you get the hang of it you'll be an old pro in no time.

You will need the following:
Blue A2 sized card base
White card panel cut to 5 3/8" x 4 1/8" (card panel 1)
White card panel cut to 5 1/8" x 3 7/8" (card panel 2)
Sticky embossing ink
Gold embossing powder
Coloring medium of your choice
Sequins, beads, or gems of your choice
Acetate or plastic packaging cut to 5 1/4" x 4"
1/4" wide foam tape (I prefer to use tape that is 1/4" in thickness as well)
Using sticky embossing ink, stamp the large and medium feathers all across card panel 1 and use the medium feather to stamp numerous times on heavy weight vellum. Cover both in gold embossing powder and heat set.
Fussy cut the feathers from the vellum and set aside.
Stamp the bird onto card panel 2. Color with the medium of your choice. I used markers and colored my bird to look a little like an American Gold Finch. Adhere card panel 2 to your card base.
Turn card panel 1 over. Measure and mark on all four sides at .5". Cut along the lines. Alternatively you can use a die but sometimes I like doing it this way.
This gives us the frame for the front of the shaker card. Place double sided adhesive along the inner sides of the back of the frame and place double sided adhesive along the edges of the acetate or plastic packaging.
Remove the backing from the adhesive and place the acetate onto the back of the frame.
Take your foam tape and run it all along the outside of card panel 2.
Before removing the backing from your foam tape fill the well with some of your vellum feathers and any other shaker filling you'd like. I went with sequins and clear acrylic gems. Attach the frame to the foam tape and glue a few of the feathers to the outside of the frame.
That's all! Not so hard, is it? I cannot wait to see what you are inspired to create with your Blank Page Muse stamps! Be sure to tag us on social media so that we can ooh and ahh over your work.
