4 Shaker Card Ideas With Essentials by Ellen

Shaker cards are a super fun style of interactive cards with a clear window full of bits that shake like sequins and beads!

Our Carly is pretty obsessed with shaker cards and today she is sharing 4 ideas, including a video tutorial on how to make one with layered paper & no foam!

So guys, I’m thinking of changing my middle name to “loves shaker cards” and then I would be Carly Loves Shaker Cards Minner. What do you think? LOL!

Playing with the new Essential Circles, I made a layered shaker that doesn’t need any foam tape and I love how it turned out!

Here’s a quick video of the assembly process…

And I couldn’t resist creating a few sparkly shakers, I know no one is surprised, LOL!

The Essential Circles make great shaker windows for a Clever Sausage birthday card.

The Mondo OMG is also just perfection as a shaker window!!!

I obviously love word shaker windows and I think the EBE YAY die is always a good idea!
