Window Shaker Card

Hello Kre8tors! Welcome to my blog if you’re new, and welcome back if you’ve been around for awhile! Thank you for coming! Today I’m sharing these fun Window Shaker Cards with you! Shaker cards are a great way to send an interactive hello in these strange times. I love how bright and cheery they are with those fun sequins swirling about between the window sheets. Which is your favorite? The Honey Bee or Peaceful Poppies?

I think my favorite would have to be the HONEY BEE card! I just can’t get over those adorable little bees floating around inside the shaker. And those BRIGHT iridescent sequins are really calling to me right now!

Having to stay inside is making me crave brightness like never before, and the shimmery, rainbow-y goodness this card gives is just so refreshing and makes me happy!

I used the Stitched Rectangles Dies to cut out the window on this Honey Bee card, and I stamped the bees in Petal Pink ink. I used the coordinating Detailed Bee Dies to cut them out very quickly!

On the inside I stamped the flowers on a separate scrap and cut them out, although looking at this now you can just stamp them flat on the card! Silly me! 😉 I used Mint Macaron to also stamp the sentiment about 1-1/2″ below the score line on the card base. I added a large bee with glue dots to the inside lower right hand corner so that it would be concealed by the sequins until the card was opened.

I’m so happy with how this card turned out! Truth be told, I actually made the Poppy card first, but I messed up and wanted to make one even better! Turns out, it was a good thing I made another video, because I was able to show how I used the Stitched Rectangle Dies and also made the same card with just the Paper Trimmer!

Can you tell what’s wrong with this version? Leave me a comment on this post or on my video and let me know what you think it is!

I really do love the red, black, clear, and gold sequins in this Poppy card though! If it were Autumn, I think this card would definitely be my favorite of the two.

And of course those Poppy Elements are so wonderful to add a quick bit of fun inside the card! It really makes a huge impact, I think. Be sure to check out my YouTube tutorial below and SUBSCRIBE to my channel if you haven’t already! It really helps me out!

Measurements:

Whisper White Card Base: 4-1/4″ x 11″, Score @ 5-1/2″
Whisper White Card Mat: 4″ x 5-1/4″
Cut a rectangle “window” from the front of the card base and card mat so you have a 1″ border all the way around each piece. Optionally, you can use the Stitched Rectangle Dies.

Pop Out Panel Card

I am loving this Pop Out Panel Card I saw online from Kevin Devine of Divinely Designed. You can check out his video at: https://youtu.be/zHVW6IX3J4M

I used Falling Flowers and the May Flower Framelits Dies to decorate. All of the measurements for this card are in the video.

One of my favorite types of cards are the 3D or Interactive cards. This is the first pop out panel card I’ve made and it was a lot of fun. The template is simple to create, the longest part about making this card for me was stamping, coloring, and cutting all those little flowers! But I enjoyed every step of it, and that’s what this is all about!
