I am thrilled to be joining the main MFT design team as we share shaker card inspiration ALL week! And you know MFT doesn't celebrate without lots of prizes so be sure to visit the main MFT Blog to find out how you can win supplies to make your own shaker cards and to see the fantastic cards that the design team created!
The theme of the first day is to share tips and tricks for making shaker cards and I have thought of a few that seem to help me when I create a shaker card.
#1.) Don't go crazy with your "shaking" material. If you fill up your space with too many sequins and doodads your card won't shake, therefore you have a pretty boring shaker card. ;)
#2.) Start out with a small shape, such as a small circle, or square. As you get more confident in your shaker card skills you can increase your shaker space.
#3.) Be sure to line the entire die-cut shape with foam. Any space left open will be a magnet for sequins and they will eventually fall out.
Here is the shaker card I created just for today using the adorable new Birdie Brown You Gnome Me stamp set and matching die-namics. I had SO MUCH FUN creating this card!
MFT Shaker Week will take place April 13-17 and I am sharing cards each day! Yay! Be sure to check back tomorrow, I have a card I can't wait to share. Have a great day and thank you for stopping by!
