I am happy to announce that I am the newest member of the Scrapbooks By Design team! For my first design team post, I created a sequin shaker card using Newton’s Nook stamp set with some Lawn Fawn patterned paper and dies.
I love the look of shaker cards, and I found the perfect way to get the sequins to sit correctly and not get stuck was to use ‘fun foam’ to pop up the window instead of pop dots or foam tape. I used to have trouble with the sequins getting stuck in the corners when I used pop dots or tape – I find those work best for square or rectangle sequin window shakers.
The background I created using a watercolor brush and Lawn Fawn’s Wild Rose ink to match the patterned paper I chose from the 6×6 Let’s Polka Mon Amie paper pad.
I hope you like the card – I am always happy to share techniques or measurements, just leave a comment. Each and every comment is welcome and appreciated!
