Peek-a-Boo Shaker Card

Welcome back for our final day of shaker cards! Today's shaker card is a fun peek-a-boo style, you get a glimpse at the inside of the card through the shaker window.

For my card today I used the fabulous Mason Jar Mug Die-namics. I die-cut the mug our of a panel created with the Blueprints 24 Die-namics. I adhered the acetate to that panel and created the shaker box. For this shaker I was careful not to add too many sequins and beads. While I usually like to be generous with those, it was important here to keep the amount low so the inside of the card could be seen.



On the inside of the card, I stamped a simple sentiment from the Mason Jar Labels stamp set and added a pile of sparkling ice cubes and a slice of lemon. I carefully lined the sentiment up with the shaker window to make sure it would show in just the right spot on the front of the card.


On a card like this, I think the little details are really important. One of the things I always do when making this style of card is to add another piece of card stock to the inside cover of the card. I don't want the recipient to see any of the adhesive or card stock from the inside of the shaker.


Thanks so much for joining us all week! I hope you have enjoyed all of the different shaker cards, and more importantly, I hope you will try one yourself! Don't forget to share your shaker cards with us on Social Media. We can't wait to see what you create!
