Posted by TheDocraftsTeam, 04 Apr, 2017
Shake things up this Easter with a contemporary shaker card, perfect to make with the kids for their grandparents, or just as a sweet surprise for a loved one. However you are celebrating the day, make sure its filled with family, fun and plenty and great food!
1. Trim a sheet of green spotty Paws for Thought paper a little smaller than an A5 card blank and adhere on the front. Cut three pieces of cardstock to the same size and snip an aperture in each, 1.5cm in. Glue together and back with a panel of acetate, cut to size. Stick two strips of 3D foam tape on top of each other and fix around the edge of the frame. Set aside for later.
1. Die cut three filigree eggs from silver mirror board and around 20 mini eggs from silver and coral. Hand cut roughly ten eggs from white cardstock and place them all in the middle of the card front. Stick the shaker panel on top.
3. Cut a strip of plain white cardstock into a fishtail banner shape; it should be a little shorter than the width of the card. Trim another slightly smaller one from yellow cardstock and mount on top. Freehand, cut a bunny shape and stick to the banner, along with a die-cut ‘Happy Easter’. Glue to the card front to finish.
