Hey friends, it’s Victoria! Welcome back to another quick card tutorial!

Know someone who is celebrating an anniversary soon? Why not make them a rad anniversary shaker card using the Man Glitter Stamp Set from the April 2020 Subscription Box!

Recommended supplies for this project include:

  • Man Glitter Stamp Set (April Subscription Box)
  • Nesting/Layering Shape Die (any shape)
  • Acetate (to make the shaker element)
  • Bristol Paper (or smooth white card stock for coloring)
  • Alcohol or watercolor markers, pens, or paints (for coloring image)
  • Black stamping ink and an acrylic block
  • Gems or sequin
  • 5 x 6 1/2 inch card base
  • 4 3/4 x 6 1/4 inch solid card panel
  • 4 1/2 x 6 inch pattern card stock panel
  • Foam adhesive

To begin, create two stamped images using the man and woman stamp and the “rad” stamp from the Man Glitter Stamp Set. For this card, I stamped all the images using Versa Fine Black Ink.

Color the images using the medium of your choice (ex: watercolors, color pencils). I used Zig Clear Color Real Brush Pens to color the images for this card. Fussy cut all of the images, leaving a slight white border around the edge of each image.

Next, create the shaker element by using a layered shape die, acetate, and white card stock. For this project, I cut three hearts using the Traditional Hearts and Layering Basics Die Set by Tonic and Window Acetate by Taylored Expressions.

First, using a shape die of your choice, cut 1 solid shape using a piece of acetate. This will serve as a window for your shaker element. Next, cut 1 solid shape out white card stock. This will be the base of your shaker.

To frame the shaker element, cut an outline of your shape using a two nesting dies. Position a smaller die in the center of the larger die to create a frame. Assemble the shaker element by pouring sequin, gems, or glitter on the shaker base.

Add thin foam adhesive the border of the acetate shape and adhere to the base to contain the shaker elements. Lastly, adhere the shape frame on top of the acetate shape – this will add a finishing touch to the shaker element and hide the foam adhesive.

Next, stamp the “Happy Anniversary” sentiment on the pattern card stock panel. Adhere all of the panels to the card base as shown. To finish the card, add the shaker element and the stamped images to the center of the pattern card stock panel.
