Shaker Graduation Card

imageI’ve never made a graduation card before, and really I had no idea where to start. I knew the card was for a lady who had just finished teacher training.  Where to begin? I rummaged through my stamp sets for ages and then thought about digital stamps.  This is a new field for me but I often see lots of lovely cards on Instagram using Gerda Steiner stamps so I had a look there and found a really cute owl, and it was on sale for free.  I’m not sure how long it will be on offer for but here’s the link go check it out!


I printed it off, fussy cut it out and then coloured it in with copics.

Next I turned to my card base and pulled out my lawn fawn let’s polka paper – isn’t this teal heart paper so pretty? I used my MFT peekaboo dienamic to make a window, stamped a woo hoo sentiment in charcoal ink on the card base, added sequins and acetate, stuck it down and had a flat shaker window. I didn’t want extra bulk on this card so I just used normal double sided tape so it doesn’t really shake as such but I still love the look of all those sequins.


All I had to do then was add some strips of patterned paper, my sentiment and some more sequins and assemble the card.  I added a wink of Stella over my owl and sentiment for a little shimmer. Would love to hear from you, the comments box is at the bottom of the post, thanks, hope you have a great day!
