Super Simple Christmas Shaker Card!

Hey there fellow crafters!  Today, I want to share a really easy, super cute shaker card with you.  These cards can be assembled in minutes, especially once you've got your stamp all picked out!  These cards are great for mass production, because you're just cutting your cardstock and the gluing everything together.  One little trick is going to make them a super easy treat to make!

Supply List:
  1.  Colored 8 1/2 x 11 inch cardstock.
  2. White cardstock.
  3. Glitter tape/Ribbon
  4. SHAKER STICKERS!!  (We're cheating, I know!  I got mine from Dollarama.)

First, you need to cut your card base.  I used Michael's Recollection 8 1/2 x 11 inch cardstock in blue for my snowman card, and green for my Christmas tree card.  Cut the cardstock in half lengthwise so that you end up with two pieces of cardstock that are 4 1/4 x 11 inches long.  Fold these in half to create a top folding card.

Next, you need a piece of white cardstock that's 4 1/8 x 4 7/8 (you can change the measurement depending on how much white you want).  Now, determine where you want your shaker to be.  Lightly place the sticker to determine placement, and then use a light pencil stroke to remember where. Once you've done this, it's time to stamp your sentiment!  Then, place the shaker sticker back and press it firmly onto the paper.  Then, use a glitter or metallic pen to draw a border around the outer edges of the white cardstock.

Place your glitter tape/ribbon so that the bottom of the tape is just over a quarter of an inch from the bottom, or to your liking.  Now, mount the card on fun foam (or use foam tape), and stick the panel above the glitter tape.  There!  You're all done your simple shaker card!
