Cookies n Milk Mini Shaker Card

I may be addicted to making shaker cards! Made this one a while back when I was a Dirty Girl for the first 6 months this year at SplitcoastStampers.

The papers are by Doodlebug Design from the February 17 Simon Card Kit. If you don’t subscribe you really should! The long thin panel is cut from a paper which is all banners. The little image is from what I call a ‘cut apart sheet’. You know, those ones with all small tags or images meant to be cut apart and used separately. I’m always so happy when I see a paper pack with those types of papers! I super carefully cut the center out of the milk bottle and adhered it to a scrap of cardstock. On that scrap I built my shaker walls with foam tape. Then I added some glass glitter. It doesn’t stick to the acetate like plastic based glitter. I made sure to not add so much glitter that the little face was obscured. I love that the glass glitter appears white like milk!

Enjoy, Rebecca

Hi! I’m a disabled SAHM of three wonderful boys. Married since 1997 to Tim. I love crafts, creating art, sewing, needlework, making jewelry, reading, watching movies and snuggling with my fat tabby cat, Jesse. My boys are all on the autism spectrum so it’s a chaotic but fun life. I live in a small town north-east of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It’s in the middle of corn fields and horse farms while still feeling like a suburb.

  1. Really adorable, Rebecca! I would never have thought to try a small shaker, but it looks like it has the same impact. I have two questions: How can you tell if your glitter is glass? And: How did you camouflage the ends of the fabric trim you used?Many thanks for another great card idea!
