Buffalo Plaid Shaker Card

Do you love the look of Shaker Cards but find them a little intimidating to make?  I always thought they would be really challenging.  BUT once I discovered the Keepsake Envelopes from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L, the creation of Shaker Cards got a lot easier.  Today I am going to show you how I created a simple Buffalo Plaid Shaker Card featuring Keepsake Envelopes.

I knew I wanted to keep things simple with a white background because I wated to be able to incorporate the trendy Buffalo Plaid patterned paper I had on hand.

I started things off by adding white cardstock into this envelope. It's the biggest envelope in the pack measuring 5 inches X 4.6 inches.  I then added sequins into it.  I did spend some time debating whether to use a patterned paper in lieu of white.  Ultimately I thought that would make things too busy so I stuck with white.

I cut out a 5 inch by 5 inch frame and used my E-Z Runner® to secure that to the front of the Keepsake Envelope.  Next I peeled the adhesive backing off of the Keepsake Envelope and adhered it to black cardstock.  I cut the black cardstock to be a 5 1/4 inch square so it would act as a mat for the shaker.

Following that I pulled out my Crafty Foam Tape and used it on the perimeter and center of my black cardstock. I attached that to the base of my card which was already covered in the same Buffalo Plaid patterned paper. Although I thought it might not work to have them up against each other, I actually like how unique it looks!

Lastly I added embellishments - a sticker sentiment and a couple stickers along with a ribbon bow.  I secured the ribbon with a couple of Dodz Adhesive Dots Mini  to make sure it would stay in place.
