Gold Star Shaker Card

A shaker card is perfect for celebrating anything. People just love a card that does something. And it doesn't matter your age.  Kids love 'em and so do grandpas.

The card is even more fun when the shaker window is a special shape. For this card the shape is a balloon - although with the Baker's Twine bow its hard to tell the shape isn't just a plain circle. I made the shape with Stampin'UP!'s Balloon Framelits die

I love all the gold on this card. Gold Baker's twine, gold embossing on the sentiment (from a set called Sassy Salutations). And Gold Foil backing paper.

The stars in the shaker window were punched from a scrap sheet of gold foil paper using the Confetti Stars Border Punch. I used the Confetti Stars punch on the bottom of the white piece too so that the gold foil paper would be visible through the holes.

How to make a Shaker Card:
1. Punch or die cut the hole
2. Adhere a sheet of Acetate over the back of the hole (to keep in your little pieces)
3. On the back of the acetate, use foam Dimensionals, to create a wall around the hole.
    The Dimensionals have enough depth to allow the little pieces to move around. 
4. Add your little pieces and cover with a backing material. 
    You should now have sealed shaker compartment
5. Adhere to your project.
