Let's shake things up shall we? Shaker card kits and pattern paper are a great combination to add a splash of bright color and happiness to a birthday card! Sharing these fun cards will surely surprise your next card recipient. With just a few steps you will be giggling with happiness too. So let's get started.
For your supplies, you will need a Queen & Co. shaker card kit, a Queen & Co. die plate, some pretty double sided pattern paper, sequins, sugar toppings, glue and a smile. Yup, a big fat smile! LOL

First you will need to die cut the front panel for your shaker card. Decide which side of the paper you would like to be on the front of you card and what side will be your butterfly embellishments.
Next glue down your die cut panel onto the front card panel supplied in your kit. I use regular glue for this step but you can use adhesive if you wish.
Remove the paper cover from one side of your foam card front and adhere it to a A2 card base. Now you are ready to fill up your shaker with diamond topping or sequins. I decided to fill every other one of my butterfly openings with one of the butterflies I had left over from die cutting my front panel. Be resourceful and use those "scrap" pieces.
Your card is looking great already.Remove the paper cover from the front of your foam card front and place on the sheet of acetate to keep all your bits in place. Add the cover piece of card front panel with some glue or adhesive and you are almost done.
Stamp on a birthday sentiment and add some of the leftover butterflies to the front of your card with foam tape for some added dimension. Here comes the fun part, start shaking that card. LOL I feel like a kid every time I do it.
Making shaker cards is so much fun. Pairing it with pretty pattern paper just takes your card to another level. If you have a ton of paper you're just sitting on, pull out that paper and get shaking.
