Tea Shaker

 Shaker cards are easy to make as long as you have all of the necessary supplies. They are also fun to receive at any age. Make someone smile with this card.

   A Nice Cuppa

   Melon Mambo A-2
   Have a Cuppa DSP 3-1/2 x 3
   Window Sheet (Acetate) 3-1/2 x 3

   Archival Basic Black

   Shaker Card

   Cups & Kettle Framelits Dies
   Mounting Tape (Foam Tape)
   Fast Fuse 
   Elements to fill shaker window

First, I die cut my shaker shape directly on the card front. I chose a tea cup.

I then stamped my sentiment on the bottom and the heart of steam on the top. 

Next, I adhered my window sheet (acetate) from the back of the card front. It covers the opening of the cup.

I then added my foam tape or mounting tape all around the die cut. I placed it directly on the acetate. I am working on the left panel of an opened card. 

FYI: By using foam tape, I have created a wall all around the tea cup. Make sure there are no breaks anywhere around it. Otherwise, your sprinkles will fall out. 

Now, I add sprinkles or shaker elements on the acetate or window sheet. You can use anything you want. I had some micro beads, red glitter hearts, and other sequins.

I then took the tape off the foam and adhered the DSP to seal the shaker. You can easily add a complete panel to cover the shaker portion. I left mine alone. You can also add the shaker portion to the front of the card. 

You can find a tutorial to create a shaker card HERE. There are many ways and versions of shaker cards. Get creative and make your own.
