Shake it Up, Baby! Beginnings Baby Boy Shaker Card Tutorial

Hello, Friends!  Kathy here with another fresh and fun baby card design.  This Beginnings Baby Boy Shaker Card Tutorial will shake up your crafty adventures in all the right ways!


This 5" x 7" shaker design is a sort of "hybrid".  Part card, part folio, part baby book it's the perfect baby gift.  It would also look great on display at the baby shower, or work for nursery decor. 

I combined some Spectrum Robin's Egg Blue papers and Brown Micro Checks paper with the gorgeous designer papers and stickers from the  Beginnings 12x12 Collection Kit. I love the fact that they are perfect color matches for the kit and really stretch out my collection papers.


Shaker cards really add a fun, fresh element to any card design.  I've prepared a Snapguide Tutorial with step by step instructions for creating the card base, shaker element and inside folio.





That 1/4" spine allows you to add all sorts of goodies to the card interior.





Detail stickers make great journaling spots  I simply added them to folded cardstock, then trimmed around to shape.  Add little buttons or paperclips for even more fun.

Use 4" x 6" images from the cut apart page to fill the large pocket on the bottom of the card.  Photos can be mounted on the back, turning this card into a mini baby book.


Don't you just love these sweet images?

Beginnings Baby Boy Bib Overall Card



I was having so much fun with these darling papers that I had to make another card.  This baby boy bib overall card uses more of the Robin's Egg Blue Spectrum and Brown Micro Check Papers.  I also used this pretty print from the Beginnings 6" x 6" Bundle.


Mount small Details Stickers on cardstock and then tuck them in the pockets.


Fussy cut images and add more Details Stickers to decorate the inside.  Don't you just love this striped Robin's Egg Blue Spectrum print?

I hope I've inspired you to get out your Authentique papers, scissors and glue and get your craft on.

Thanks for stopping by!
