Creating a faux shaker card.

It’s Tutorial Thursday! Today we are creating a faux shaker card.

You are probably asking what this means…a faux shaker card. It means it looks like a shaker card without the pocket sealed. Everything is glued down.

Here is the card that is being created with instructions and video to follow.

  1. Cut Thick Whisper White Card Stock with the Paper Trimmer to 4 1/4″ X 11″. On the 11″ side score at 5 1/2″.
  2. Cut Basic Black Card Stock to 4″ X 5 1/4″.
  3. Take a piece of Whisper White Card Stock and cut out from the Heirloom Dies a rectangle and then emboss.
  4. Cut a piece of Window Sheet to a little bit beyond the opening. Attach to the frame with Mini Glue Dots.
  5. Attach the frame with window sheet to the mat with Adhesive Foam Strips. Tip: You might want to put a dimensional or two on the top if the strips don’t come all the way up.
  6. Take a piece of Whisper White Card Stock and cut to 1 3/4″ X 4″. Punch with a Tag Topper Punch. Use the Trio Punch to round the corners. Take a piece of ribbon or a strip of paper for the top of the tag. Tip: To keep the ribbon cinched tight use a glue dot on the middle of the knot.
  7. Insert into the pocket to create your faux shaker card.
