Lot of Bots Shaker Card

This little robot just cried out for some bolts in the shaker piece.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! stamp set Lots of Bots and the new In Colors Dusty Durango and Soft Suede for this card. Never made a shaker card? They are fun cards to make and to give. Follow the tutorial below to make your own shaker card. 


 Draw a pencil line across the middle of the square piece of cardstock that will be the shaker.  My cardstock piece is 2-3/4" x 2-3/4".  Line up the pencil line with the tabs on the 1-3/4" Circle punch and be sure it is centered at the sides.




Place strips of Sticky Strip around the edge of the cardstock.








Peel the backing off the Sticky Strip and adhere a square piece of Window Sheet.   








Place dimensionals or mounting tape all around the window. The smaller your shaker items the tighter the frame will need to be so the items do not escape out the gaps.





Peel off the backing on the dimensionals and add the shaker filling. I added 7 nuts in the 4-40 size.





 Stamp your image and colour.







Image face down, place the stamped image onto the dimensionals. Complete card and adhere shaker box to card front.

    What a fun shaker card! I had thought of using nuts instead of brads, but not to do a shaker card with them! Very clever!

    And I love the colors, too!
