A Stylized Birthday Shaker Card Technique

Today's card is one of the Techniques that Terri showed us in July.  This is the "Shaker Card" technique.  

These are very simple to make.  Stampin' Up! has these wonderful foam strips that you can bend into a full circle.  It was super fun to do.  We were shown how to use the Stampin' Buddy to make the inside edges not sticky.  Just run it around the edges.  But you will want to save that circle you punched out of card stock to set on top of the window sheet to keep that powdery stuff from getting on the window.  It's okay if it gets on the window but you have to clean it off so the window is clear.  So it's easier just to drop that punched out piece in the opening, use the Stampin' Buddy and then take the circle out.  As simple as that!!!

To make a shaker card you decorate your card front.  Then punch a circle (or whatever shape you want) on the front. Then you add a piece of Window Sheet that is larger than the opening.  Then you stamp a piece of card stock that goes behind the window.  I piled up my "confetti" and moved it towards the center of the word piece. Make sure your words are towards the top or they will be covered up by the confetti.  Center the words and set the card front in place.  Then use Dimensionals to set the card front on top of your card base.  You will want to double stack the Dimensionals because of the thickness of the foam strip is the equivalence to the thickness of one Dimensional.  If you don't double up, your card front will be droopy on the edges.  

I have not made a shaker card in a long time.  I forgot how fun they are to make, plus I learned about the Stampin' Buddy tip to make the inside not sticky so nothing is stuck around the inside where you don't want it.  Once you stick it, it's on and there's no going back!!

The words here are from the "Stylized Birthday" stamp.  I LOVE a large "Happy Birthday"!!!
