This card was very easy to make. It is a shaker card where the sequins are inside the card. Shaker cards always were a bit tricky to make but Stampin’ Up!® showed me a much easier way to make them using Clear Envelopes during an OnStage meeting. OnStage is a “convention” that Stampin’ Up!® puts on for all Demonstrators. I always learn so much from them and love attending whether in person or virtually. Unfortunately, most of them are virtual right now due to COVID but they are still fun.
To make this card, I first made the shaker part of it. All I needed to do was put a bunch of Sequins For Everything into a Clear Envelope that I had cut down to fit the area I wanted it in. Then you just seal it with Tear & Tape to keep the sequins inside. Next I used the large die from the set called Brilliant Rainbows and cut it out of a piece of Basic White card stock for the front of the card. I also used it to cut out the colors in Pool Party, Daffodil Delight, Pale Papaya and Flirty Flamingo card stock. I stamped the sentiment in Pool Party ink. I used temporary tape on the back of the white card front and stuck it to a Flirty Flamingo card base so I could easily line up the colors behind it. Then I adhered each color in the same sized slot using Multipurpose glue. When it was dry I could lift up the Basic White piece because I had used the temporary tape to stick it on. I used tear & Tape to adhere the shaker part over the rainbow colors and then again to adhere the white card front on top.
Shaker cards are so much easier to make using the Clear Envelopes and I am sure the recipient will love the added surprise to it.
