DIY Flower Vase Shaker Card


Hey everyone!

I have a bunch of birthdays coming up, so I wanted to stock up and make a few cards to have on hand using supplies that I have been hoarding and hadn't tried out yet! Anyone else have that problem? LOL!

Today I want to share with you a really cute DIY Flower Vase Shaker Card.
This will make the perfect birthday card for one of the ladies in my life!
Who doesn't love flowers?!


The first thing I did for this card was stamp and clear ink emboss with WOW! embossing powder onto some 80lb Neenah cardstock. The stamps I used for this card come from Stampendous - Bouquet for you set. I then water coloured the images in staying with the wells of the embossed areas. Once I was happy with the colouring I loaded the paper onto my Silhouette PixScan mat, scanned it and did the trace of the image and then cut them out!

Here is a cell phone pic I took after the cut (sorry for the bad quality).
I can't tell you how much I LOVE, LOVE my PixScan mat! No fussy cutting required!!!

Want to know where I got the vase cut out?!
It is actually a die piece to cut out bows from American Crafts - Dear Lizzy - Fine and Dandy (the banner also came from this die set). When I cut out the top layer of the card I made sure that my big shot would stop cutting the bow by having the top plate end where the bottom of the vase would be. I then just used a craft knife to cut the piece out. So easy right? Sometimes you just have to look at the supplies you have in a different way to stretch out your collection!


The rest of the shaker was assembled like any other shaker card. I used some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh, Martha Stewart Glitter and some Recollections Microbeads. I then added the top layer of the card to a piece of coordinating green scrap I had and mounted it onto A-6 Card base.

Hope this DIY Flower Vase Shaker Card, has inspired you to create something similar and maybe look at supplies you have in a whole different way!

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Crafting  :)
