Butterfly Shaker Card with Sequins

Here's a fun card - its a shaker card filled with sequins. You can make a shaker card with any shape, I used a butterfly die for this card.

If you're thinking of trying a shaker card I have a few suggestions. 

First thing to think about is placement of the images.  On this card I stamped the sentiment first and then diecut the shape. You can stamp the rest of the imagery around the sentiment and the hole. 

Second: regarding order of operations.  
  • Decorate the front first - because it will be "lumpy" and impossible to stamp on after you've created the shaker part.
  • Remember to adhere the window sheet to the back side of the hole BEFORE you line it with dimensionals - OK I confess, I've done that and you feel really dumb as you're ripping off the dimensionals.
  • create your "well" for the shaker elements (sequins on this card) but fill it BEFORE you remove the sticky backing
  • Use a separate sheet of paper over the hole to close it. Then attach it to the base.
