Vase Shaker Card

Shaker cards are not my forté. Almost every shaker card I make I end up having to re-do it, because I put the foam in the wrong spot, the acetate in the wrong spot, or too much glue which got all over the acetate. Yep, shaker cards are not my thing. I know this, so I do my best to really pay close attention to what I’m doing when I make one. I did pretty good on this one. It only took one attempt. 😁

Supplies used:

  • Altenew Poppy Garden Stamp and Die set
  • Copics W-1, W-3, W-5, Blender
  • Accent Opaque White Cardstock Paper
  • Vase Die
  • Momento Tuxedo black ink
  • Simon Says Stamp Sequins Flowering Clover
  • Altenew Misty Morning Ink
  • Acetate
  • Simon Says Stamp Craft Tacky Glue
  • double sided tape
  • Heffy Doodle Classic Sentiments

First, I die cut the flowers, stems and leaves. Then I used the outline paper to position my cuts and line up my stamps on those cuts – then used my positioner to stamp my image. I usually don’t do this, but I find I spend less time lining up my stamps than I do a die on a stamped image. This is something I plan on doing more often in the future.

Cuts made first, then stamped

I used my warm grays to add some colour but wanted to make sure there was a lot of white showing as well. DISCLAIMER – this is my first time using my copics on a project. I just got them and I’m in love with how well these work.

I then used my vase die and made a cut on my panel, but I didn’t use the entire length of the die. I took a blade and cut the vase short. I knew I wouldn’t need the height of the full vase.

I attached my acetate, cut out another vase on craft foam for the back of the panel, and attached my stems between the foam and the panel. I added my sequins and pulled out my Altenew Morning Misty for the background of the vase.

I didn’t screw this up.
Misty Morning worked really well as a background colour for this vase.

Then I lined up my flowers, used press’n seal to keep them in place and used foam tape to give the front flowers dimension.

I used the happy birthday sentiment from Heffy Doodle Classic Sentiments on a banner strip and positioned in across the vase. And finally, I added some sequins for a little something extra.
