How to Make a Shaker Cake Card

The coordinating dies for the Big & Bold line take big stamping to a whole new level. And today, I want to share with you how to use the Birthday Cake stamps and dies to create a shaker card.

You can watch me create a shaker card on last night's Del & Artie Live, here. In the video, I used the Sympathy Rose stamps and dies, but the process of creating a window and backing it with acetate and popping it all up on foam tape is the same.

To create this card, I followed these steps:

  1. First, I stamped the Big & Bold Birthday Cake image with black ink.

  2. Then, I colored in the cake layers in rainbow order, leaving the rest uncolored.

  3. Next, I stamped and die cut the layers out of another panel and colored it in with Neutral Gray and Violet Copic markers.

  4. Then, I covered the slice with a mask and airbrushed a rainbow background down the top two thirds of panel.

  5. After that, I adhered a sheet of acetate behind the die cut panel with liquid adhesive.

  6. I poured some Crater Lake Sequins from Catherine Pooler on to the first cake, then popped up the window panel with foam tape.

  7. To finish off the card, I stamped and trimmed down a sentiment and added it to the front.

To create the second card:

  1. I score a card base with a bone folder and a Scor-Pal to create a diamond scored pattern on the front.

  2. Then, I stamped and die-cut the cake slice and colored it with cream colored Copics.

  3. I backed the slice with acetate, poured some Vegas Baby sequin mix under it and popped it up over the card base with foam tape.

  4. Next, I created a sentiment strip for the front from the Best Life stamp set.

  5. To finish off the project, I used the mask from the first project to cover the slice, then airbrushed the card with Copic YG23 and splattered it with Nuvo Gold Mousse and a little water.

I hope you enjoyed these projects as much as I enjoyed creating them. Thanks so much for spending a few moments with me today!
