Welcome friends. Jennifer Snyder here to share a shaker card made with Maja Design’s Everyday Life Collection. This is a wonderful collection filled with warm summer/autumn images and colors.
Today I have a shake card in an “Americana” style, which simply means a shabby chic patriotic style featuring the American Flag. While Maja Design is a Swedish company, we LOVE Maja Design in the U.S. and all around the world! My point is to show how a little imagination can transform the papers to meet your particular needs.
Hope, Believe, Cherish!
Here are the individual papers used from the collection: Hugs & Kisses (both A and B sides), Indoors 2, Home Sweet Home (both A and B side), Art Journaling.
Below is a simple image of how easy this was to create.
I made the base card, then cut out the square to be used for the shaker. The tulle netting will be the window for the shaker. Yep, tulle netting is great to use for simple, quick shakers because it has “slack” or allows for space to let shaker mix move freely.
1. Cut a piece of tulle netting big enough to wrap around the paper square.
2. Wrap the tulle around the paper square like a present, then secure the netting on the back with double sided tape – leave one side open for filling.
3. Fill with fun shaker mix ( I used Crystalz from Buttons Galore and More) and make sure all sides are glued/taped down so mix doesn’t spill out.
I finished off the card with a 3D shooting star button from Buttons Galore, and also with some of the journaling words cut from the fabulous Journaling Sheet in the collection. See the image below. Isn’t that a cool sheet for so many uses.
Thanks for stopping here. Happy crafting.
