AAA Birthday – Game #9 A Shaker Card and…a Kiwi Accent!

Hi again everyone. This month AAA Birthday has another great challenge to start 2020. I am exicted to begin the new year with not only a Shaker Card but my very first Process Video to boot! Time to create a Shaker Card everyone and I love flat shakers so visit my YouTube Channel and see how I made it. Hop on over to the AAA Birthday blog and see what the Design Team has created and a special welcome to Vita Thai as this months guest designer.


  • My Favorite Things Beary Special Birthday (Image), Polar Bear (Sentiments) stamp sets and Blueprints 27 (Tag) die
  • Bristol Smooth Cardstock
  • Sullivans Holo Multi embellishments
  • Alcohol Markers
  • White vellum

Ta Dah…if you want to hear what I sound like, below you will find my very first process video – I hope you enjoy it.


  • Ink blended Distress Oxide Inks Salty Ocean and Blueprint Sketch over Bristol Smooth cardstock (4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches).
  • Cut vellum to allow 1/4 inch flaps on all sides (4 3/4 x 6) and score at 1/4 inch.
  • Cut off corners of vellum for easier attaching to background.
  • Place double sided tape along all sides of the back of the ink blended panel and attach three sides to panel, leaving a top opening pocket for addition of shaker elements.
  • Add shaker elements to pocket and seal up last side.

Note: Image was previously coloured so not included in instructions.


  • I coloured a piece of cardstock with Copic Marker YR04 to match the bear image.
  • Diecut tag using My Favorite Things Blueprint 27.
  • Stamped sentiment with black Ranger Archival Ink.


  • Attach sentiment strip to front of card with dimensional tape, and image with glue dots and glue.
  • Adhere a few of the shaker embellishments to the front of the card with Glossy Accents.
  • Adhere card base to side opening white cardstock with doublesided tape.

I hope you’ve been inspired to create a shaker card and join us in this months challenge.

Thanks for stopping by and have a good day.

  1. Oh Pip, what fun, loved your first video. Amazing shaker card, thanks for the tip with using vellum, agree with less bulk specially when posting overseas.
