Let's Get Rustic Masculine Shaker Card Tutorial
Here's how to build the shaker box on this 5 1/4" x 7 1/4" card:
- First, use Eileen Hull's Mailable Frame Die to cut a panel from Rustic Seven.
- Next, carefully cut the "v" shaped flap away from the base. Set this aside to use in some other project.
- Now, cut along the scored crease line in the die to create two separate pieces: a plaid window piece, and a collaged piece.
- Next, stitch burlap ribbon around the perimeter of the window, if desired.
- Then, cut a piece of clear acrylic cardstock the same size as the window piece and glue to the BACK side of the plaid paper.
- Now create an elevation for your shaker card using foam tape, or sections of waste chipboard. I used 3 layers of 1/4" wide matboard glued together to create my elevation. If you use foam tape, you will want to use at least 2 layers to give the shaker elements room to move around.
- When the elevation is adhered to the back side of the plaid paper, fill it with your shaker elements.
- If using foam tape, remove the liner and adhere the word collage panel to the back of the shaker box. If using waste chipboard, you will need to place adhesive on the edges of the word collage paper before adhering.
- Finally, hot glue wooden buttons in the corners of the shaker box where the burlap intersects.
- Then adhere the shaker box to the bottom card layers.
We'll also use the components to make this playful sentiment panel.
