Step 1. Start with a 12×12 sheet of Maja Design paper. You will see both sides of the paper on this card so make your selection keeping both the A and B sides of the paper.
Step 2. Cut the paper in half lengthwise. Trim the paper to 6in x 12in. Yep one 12×12 sheet can make two gorgeous cards.
Step 3. Using the image below, decide which side of the paper is going to be the front of the card and score accordingly. The best way to fold scored paper is to fold into the raised side. When paper is scored, it makes a raised side with a ridge and a channel or indented side. In order to keep your paper from cracking, have the ridge side become the inside the fold.
Score your paper at the 4in and 8 inch marks. Once scored, cut the corners off each end at the 3in mark.
Step 5. Continue to decorate as you wish. I decorated my card with some flowers, floral berries, ribbon and a chipboard birdhouse from Creative Embellishments. The bottom sentiment, “Best Wishes”, is a die cut from Spellbinders.

This card has one additional added surprise because it is a shaker card. I love creating shakers as I imagine the look on someone’s face as they open a shaker card.
After painting the chipboard with cream acrylic paints and creating the shaker section, I added a doily chipboard piece, giving the shaker a nice delicate decorative edge.
