Easy shaker card tutorial with Virginia Nebel!

March greetings!  Today I’m sharing with you a very quick and easy window style card, this is a great way to use up your sequins, rhinestones and beads stash. All you need is a clear cello bag and your choice of filler.  I’m going with green sequins to coordinate with some fabulous Simple Stories Charmed Life pattern papers.

Tip:  You can purchase little clear cello bags at a packaging store or save them from the packaging of your craft purchases.



Scoop some sequins into the cello bag.  Grab your card front and punch a small circle for your window.  Flip your card front over and adhere the cello bag filled with sequins lining it up to the window.

Use foam adhesive to glue the card front to your card base and voila you’ve just made a cute little shaker style window card!




Didn’t I say that was easy? have fun adding shaker windows to your cards!
