Alcohol Ink Shaker Cards | Tim Holtz Bold Text Thinlits

Hello friends! I'm so glad you stopped by to check out my blog! Today I'm sharing a couple of shaker cards I created using the Bold Text Thinlits from the Tim Holtz Sizzix Chapter 1 Release. I used these fun dies to create a shaker box that I then adhered to an alcohol ink background. I only made 2 cards, but I think it would be so fun to make a card for each of the six sentiments that are included in this new die set and give each one a different alcohol ink background!

Keep on reading for a tutorial on how I created these cards that includes step out photos for even more explanation.

Love You Shaker Card | Alcohol Ink Shaker Cards

Love You Alcohol Ink Shaker Card by Juliana Michaels featuring Tim Holtz Sizzix Bold Text Thinlits

The background for this card is from my stash of Alcohol Ink backgrounds I created when I was playing around with the recently released new Alcohol Pearls. I'm seriously SO in love with them! On this background I used Deception Alcohol Pearl,  Cranberry Alcohol Ink and Rose Alloy. These were done on Yupo paper that I then trimmed to 3.5 x 4.75 inches. This was then layered onto a piece of rose gold Metallic Kraftstock trimmed to 3.75 x 5 inches. This was then layered onto a white A2 card base.


Now onto the shakety shake! To create the shaker, I took the Love You die from the Bold Text Thinlits and die cut it from white cardstock. I then trimmed it down leaving about a 1/4" around the outside of the letters. Next, I applied Scrapbook.com 1/8" Double Sided Adhesive Tape on the back side of the die cut and around the outside edges as shown below. I then cut a piece of acetate to this size and adhered it to the back side of the die cut.


After applying the acetate I applied Scrapbook.com 1/8" Double Sided Foam Strips on the backside of the acetate making sure that the ends were touching each other. This is necessary to keep the sequins from getting out of the shaker box.


To fill the shaker box, I added some small hearts die cut from rose gold Metallic Kraftstock using the Stacked Tiles Hearts Thinlits. Having multiples of the same size are really helpful when you need multiples of the same shape.


Along with the die cuts, I added a mix of sequins from the Sizzix Ballet Slipper Sequins and Beads. I poured them out onto the background to get an idea of how much I wanted to add to the shaker box.

Making Tips: 

  • A little trick to adhering the shaker box when working with double sided adhesive tape.  The trick is to only peel up the corners of the adhesive liner and fold them outward. This allows you to place something with adhesive tape onto a card surface with more ability to move it around and get it into position before it is fully adhered to the surface.
  • Gently place the piece onto your card surface. Once you have the shaker box exactly where you want it, press down and then peel off the liner and press down again to firmly attach it to your card.

The final touch on this card was the addition of the sentiment strip. I used a stamp from the Tim Holtz Tiny Text Stamp Set and stamped it onto black cardstock using embossing ink. I then heat set it using my heat gun and trimmed it to size before adhering it to the card.

On this card, I used Villainous Alcohol Pearls, Purple Twilight Alcohol Ink and Rose Alloy to create the background. As on the previous card, I used Yupo paper and layered it onto rose gold Metallic Kraftstock and then onto a white cardstock base.


I used sequins from the Lavender Dust Sizzix Sequins and Beads along with some die cut hearts to fill the shaker. The stamped sentiment is once again from the Tim Holtz Tiny Text Stamp Set.
