Sweet Ice Cream Shaker Card

Last November when Stampin' Up! was having it's virtual OnStage three day extravaganza, one of the techniques that was shared by Rosie's Creative Cottage, was how you can make a shaker card using Stampin' Up!s clear envelope. That blew my mind! 


I have to try that I said to myself. So I designed this card for a product based class I was offering using the Ice Cream Corner Suite recently. Check out this short video of the shaker card in action!



Helpful Tips:

You can see the retired sequins that I used for the "shaking" part, but you could use glitter, or small punched shapes. What I like most about this technique is by raising up the ice cream cones with dimensionals it provides the space needed for the shaking to happen!

You will build the ice cream cones on the Designer Series Paper, then attach to the Bumblebee layer. Then insert into clear envelope.

The clear envelope will need to be sealed and a small amount folded over and secured with scotch tape, then secured to the Cinnamon Cider card base. I recommend using tear and tape to secure it well.

Another cool thing to try is to stamp your greeting directly on the Designer Series Paper using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  Just make sure your stamp is inked well and apply even pressure for a few seconds before removing stamp.



Here's a cute idea for the inside to try.


Products used and available to purchase in my online store (click the link below):

Top Fold Tent Style Cinnamon Cider card base - 5-1/2" x 8-1/2", scored at 4-1/4"
Bumblebee card stock layer 4" x 5-1/4"
Ice Cream Corner Designer Series Paper 3-3/4" x 5" for layer and extra pieces for cones 
(I recommend cutting a 1-1/4" strip so you won't be wasting paper when you punch the cones.)
Rainbow Glimmer Paper  
(Punch the colors shown being careful not to waste paper.)
Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch
Clear Envelope
Scotch Tape (used for clear envelope and for attaching the scoops to the cones 
before placing unit on card front.)

I plan to make more of this style of shaker card and I hope you will give it a try.
