Creative Cafe: A Star Spangled Father’s Day Card

Posted by Yana Smakula on

Hello friends! Yana is here sharing an interactive Father’s Day shaker card. Shakers are always fun to not only make, but to play with, and I’m sure the recipient will be thrilled to receive a card with a bit of a twist to it.

Pretty much any die cut shape can be turned into a shaker by either using a lot of foam adhesive or die cutting the shape multiple times and adhering layers together for a chipboard-like piece. The latter works best for detailed intricate die cuts where foam adhesive is too difficult to adhere/hide.

Spellbinders supplies:

S5-244 Cascading Stars

PL-001 Platinum Die Cutting and Embossing Machine

T-001 Tool 'N One

Other supplies:

Tan, brown and cream cardstock; patterned paper (Bo Bunny); clear acetate; spray adhesive, glue and foam adhesive; clear stamp (Hero Arts - Dapper Dad); clear embossing ink; white embossing powder; heat tool; anti static powder tool.

Learn how you can make this shaker card by watching the video below:

Thank you so much for stopping by today, have fun die cutting!
