A Real Shaker Card This Time


Happy Wednesday, peeps!  You all were so gracious about my faux shaker card from Sunday’s post, I thought I would prove to you that I honestly do know how to make a real shaker card!  This idea was rattling around in my head for a while after I received Sprinkles of Life and I finally took it to fruition…no pun intended:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Sprinkles of Life Shaker Card Stampin Up

I used some Farmer’s Market DSP and the new Tags & Labels dies to make my shaker window.  I stamped and punched out the tree, bird and apples and assembled the whole thing with a window sheet and foam tape. 


It’s really cute IRL!  I added a couple of banners and stamped the sentiment on an Itty Bitty Banner to finish it off.  And here’s a hint about punching out those small images with the Tree Builder punch.  Stamp your small image on a narrow piece of scrap cardstock (we all have plenty of them, right?):


Slide the strip into the specific punch area from the back….you should be able to wiggle it through the slot fairly easily:


Then just punch!  You won’t have a bunch of other punched pieces flying around!   Here’s my little apple, and I still have more cardstock on which to stamp and punch!


We are on vacation, so I am going to take a little bloggy break, but I’ll be back on Sunday with my Paper Players creation!  Enjoy your week!
