Simple Painted Shaker Card

Hello Everyone!! Shanta here,

Today I have put together this DIY on how one can make a quick Shaker Card by using simple painting techniques. A shaker card is a card that has a some embellishments put into a section of the card such that these move when you shake the card.

Here’s how I got to making the simple shaker card.

I used couple of shades of Colour splash on the card surface and blended those to prepare the night sky. This serves as the background or base of the shaker card.

On another sheet I drew the outline of a little girl and her cat.

Using a paper knife I cut out along the lines.

Using Mont Marte acrylic paints I gave a wood veneer finish to the outer frame to make a window frame, painted the little girl and the furry fella.

I put a two-way tape around the base card and poured in Twinkle Melange as the shaker element.

I then placed a vinyl sheet over the two-way tape. Thereafter used craft glue to stick the painted layer. I then added a sentiment sticker on one side of the card.

Here’s another look at the complete card

Here are the materials that I used to make the card:

OHP Sheet

White Card Stock

Craft Glue

Color Splash- Grape Crush

Color Splash- Ocean Mist

Twinkle Melange- Silver Stars

Paint Brush

Mont Marte Acrylic Paint

Cards are a wonderful way to make a wish for any special occasion and events.

I hope you liked the concept of making something handmade with a little painting. to wish your loved ones this year. Do share your projects with me and do let me know how you liked mine.

Cheers,

Shantha
