Shaker Cards for Easter

Shaker Cards for Easter

Happy Easter everyone.  Jennifer Snyder here sharing my Easter shaker cards made with the new shaker chipboard sets from Creative Embellishments.  
 
Do you love shaker cards? I must say I am absolutely obsessed with making them.    They are always fun to make, fun to receive and create smile.  Nothing like knowing you are making a card that will bring joy to someone.
Creative Embellishments also has a fabulous variety of new shaker card designs.  The sets come with a pre-cut and perfectly sized acrylic piece to cover the shaker.  That’s really important because the acrylic piece is the most critical and difficult part to create when making a shaker at home.
I used the Bunny and the Egg shapes for my cards today.

This is a close up of the bunny shaker card.  I painted all chipboard pieces with ivory acrylic paint, and added some pink cardstock for bunny ears and nose.
I filled with sequins and crystals, then sealed the top with the pre-cut acrylic piece.  I did use good adhesive to seal the top ( Beacons 3-in-1glue).
Here is the second card created.  This is the traditional egg form painted with acrylic paints, then trimmed on the inside with lace and patterned paper for some egg-stra fancy embellishing.

I filled the egg card with adorable wood veneer pieces from Creative Embellishments.  They are perfectly sized to use as shaker card filler.
I simply painted with acrylic paints to look like traditional Easter candy – marshmallow peeps and jelly beens.
