Mom's Shaker Card

Today I wanted to share with you a Mom's Shaker Card by

Card Recipe:

Purple Cardstock
K&Company - Floral Dreams Patterned Paper
Cream Cardstock
Papered Flowers
.007 Clear Craft Plastic Acetate
Old Michael's Stamp (Happy Mother's Day)
Quick Dry Adhesive Glue

In order to assemble this card, you will need to cut your card base once, then cut the solid Mom piece once in acetate, once in your chosen patterned paper, and once in plain cardstock. You will also need to cut the Mom outline once in the same cardstock as your card base then cut it several times to build your shaker walls, I cut 9 of these for my card.

Glue your front outline onto your acetate piece and set it aside to dry. Next, adhere your other outline pieces one by one on top of your patterned piece using wet glue so you have a little wiggle time.

Fill each section with different colored sequins. You could use glitter, small beads or confetti instead. The trick is not to add to much.

To seal your shaker sections, carefully add glue to the top of your shaker walls and pop your acetate panel into place.

If you would like to make one of these for your mom, please visit this link (Team KnK) where you can pick up the cutting file directly.

Happy Mother's Day to all of you!!!
