Handmade Cards

Birthday Shaker Card

I wanted to make a special card for my Dad’s birthday and shaker cards always look great.

I used some bright paper to coordinate with the bright colours of the sequins. The double sided paper has a calmer grey pattern on the opposite side, which works really well as a backdrop to the sequins.

Shaker cards can be fiddly and time consuming to make but they are really worth the effort when you see the end result.

  • Lawn Fawn – Party Balloons die set
