Lawn Fawn // Holiday Shaker Card

Hello friends! Here's my first attempt in making a shaker card. Let me tell you, the first time aint easy. The sequins kept on sticking to the sides of the window. I could have left it alone. But my OC side, couldn't keep still. After a few more attempts, I managed to make it work. It was so worth it. I love how it turned out.

For the background of each window, I used plain card stock that I embossed with an embossing folder. I chose the triangle background embossing folder since the pattern looked like small Christmas trees. After that, I heat embossed it with Judikins Iridescent Sparkle embossing powder to add shine and more texture. The sentiment "warm wishes" was heat embossed on layered vellum sheets.

I also layered vellum over the grass. The top portion of the vellum was also dipped in the Judikins embossing powder to add more interest.  

Will definitely try to film a process video of my next shaker card.

While I was working on this card, my dear husband tried to do some copic coloring as well. He's hilarious!


  1. fantastic! I fear shakers! I've only made two and both time, I had fights with the sequins! Great job!

  2. I'll admit that I have only tried this once to semi-success, but I read that if you powder the edges of your tape (before you pull off the strip) that the sequins won't stick. It did seem to help, but didn't totally fix my problem. Loved your card. If I post at Google, this won't show up. WordPress doesn't think I am who they tell me I am. So I'm trying Anonymous. Hope you get to see this. BeverlyBL
