I was in the mood to make some shaker cards and this file was perfect, click here to go to file:
I did each one a bit different, if you have never made a shaker card before, click here for a you tube video.
For the first card I cut my card base to measure: 4 1/4" wide x 5 1/2" tall. I cut the green layer a 1/2" smaller all the way around and added a piece of washi tape.
My shaker element measures 2 3/4" wide x 3 1/4" high, this is the size the hang tags are when you cut them out. I used some shamrock confetti that I have had for several years inside the shaker. I added a piece of green and white twine to the fold.
My second card measures 5 1/2" wide x 6" tall, I cut 3 chevrons using 3 different green scraps and embossed them using a shamrock embossing folder I made myself, I also wrapped a piece of green ribbon around the chevrons. I added a piece of green and white twine to the fold.
Card 3 measures 5" wide x 6" tall, the lighter green layer measures 3 3/4" wide x 5" tall, I also embossed this with my shamrock embossing folder, added a piece of green ribbon and a few sequins.
I think that my pen pals will enjoy these cards.
Thank you for stopping by to take a look.
