Mother's Day Shaker Card | MFT Stamps

I don't know about you, but I'm so happy to see that shaker boxes are back! I remember the first time I made one. It was probably 10 years ago and I can honestly say that they are just as much fun to make now as they were back then! After recently getting the new MFT Stamps Stitched Circle Frames I was inspired to try my hand at making them for my Mother's Day cards. I thought they would be super fun to use for creating a shaker box filled with sparkly sequins!

I used a great technique that I saw on a video by Jennifer McGuire where she used Fun Foam to create the thickness in the shaker window instead of a bunch of foam tape (which is what I have normally used). I really loved this technique and the foam cut like butter with my Cuttlebug.

To decorate the shaker box window frame, I used the new MFT Modern Blooms stamp set and die set. These are one of my new favorite stamp sets right now! I love that that stamps have coordinating dies. With the use of a little foam tape, you can add some great dimension to your projects.

Along with the sequins, I also included some tiny little glass micro beads that I found in my stash. I'm pretty sure that I've had these since I made those first shaker box cards all those years ago. LOL!

I didn't have a Mother's Day sentiment stamp, so I printed my sentiment on white cardstock using my printer and a font called Ostrich Sans...my new favorite font!
