Jillibean Soup + CardMaker Blog Hop | Shape Shaker Card Tutorial

Hello everyone and welcome! Today I'm sharing two festive Christmas shaker cards. I created these cards for the CardMaker and Jillibean Soup Blog Hop using the new Holiday Shape Shakers by Jillibean Soup! You'll find all the blog hop details below. First, let me share a bit about these fun products.

If you aren't familiar with Jillibean Soup Shape Shakers, let me tell you a little bit about them. They are a super quick and easy way to make the popular shaker cards you are seeing all over the place these days. Most methods for making a shaker card can get a little confusing and time consuming. Jillibean Soup has taken all that stress away and turned them into a fun and easy project that anyone can create!

Begin by selecting one of their die-cut card bases. They have several shapes that include a small circle, a large circle, a square, a jar, a cloud and a star. Each of these cards has an opening already cut into them. The cards also come with envelopes and they are sized to large enough to fit the shakers. For this card, I used the Small Circle Card Base.

Next, select some stamps to decorate your card. On this card,  I used the new Ornament Stamp Set which is made to work perfectly with Small Circle Card Base. I stamped the ornament using red ink and did some gold heat embossing when I stamped the hanger and sentiment.

Next, select the coordinating Shape Shaker. For this card, I used the Small Circle Shape Shaker. This is a plastic shape that has adhesive around the outside edge and it will become the shaker part of the card.

Now the fun begins! Fill the shaker with sequins, small beads, die cuts or even a stamped image. Designer Tip: Before you fill the shaker, rub it with a dryer sheet or cotton ball soaked with rubbing alcohol. This will help decrease the static when you add the sequins.

Open the card all the way. Place the filled shaker into the opening on the card.

Remove the adhesive backing, and carefully lift up the card and filled shaker.

Carefully close the card by bringing the back side of the card toward the side with the filled shaker. Rub your fingers around the plastic shaker to adhere it the the card.

There are so many fun ways to create and play with the Jillibean Shape Shakers. Here is another shaker card I created using their Jar Card Base, Jar Shape Shaker, and Jar Die Set.


Instead of stamping on the card front, I used the Jar from the Jar Die Set to die cut a piece of patterned paper to fit the opening of the Jar Shape Shaker. To help me determine where to position the die, I used the card as a template.

The stamps on this card are from the Snow Globe stamp set. I stamped the sentiment and image on the inside of the card. I then filled the shaker with sequins and adhered it to the card. For the final touch, I added a little jute bow.

  15. Great cards! I love that you stuffed the ornament full of the sequins but didn't in the second card so that one could see the background of that shaker! LOVE the chevron background in the second shaker card! Thanks for sharing.
