School is out and graduation parties are in full swing! I can't make enough graduation cards! Shaker cards are very trendy now and so are sequins. I decided to use both for my project. Who says a masculine card can't have sequins!?!?!
I made this shaker card for a friend's son who just graduated. Masculine cards are always a challenge, but this came together rather easily.
I used a basic 5 x 5 square as my base, then layered up some of the "We are Family" patterned papers (designed by Lori Whitlock for Echo Park). The "We Are Family" collection of patterned papers are so versatile.
I printed this quote by Kolette Hall Studio from Lori's Shop right onto my cardstock. (Hint, if you don't have an 8-1/2 x 11 piece of patterned paper to run through your printer, tape it to a regular piece of printer paper).
Create the shaker by sewing a piece of acetate on 3 sides of your card, add sequins and punchouts, then sew up the last side. I secured with foam tape and added a simple congratulations banner
For my second project, I made this cute Camera Shaker Card. I had some left over 3D treat cups from awhile back and they fit perfectly in the center "Shaker Part" of this camera. Just enough room for my favorite Peanut M&Ms. :)
Now I have a coupon for you from Lori Whitlock. How about a 30% coupon code you can use to purchase anything in her shop!! Check out all of her new Shaker Cards! Too fun!!
