First Holy Communion and Confirmation Shaker Cards

Hello Friends, it feels like it's been a while! I have been soooo busy with work and life that had to take a little break from crafting.

Let's talk about last weekend... not this past weekend but a week ago May 1st weekend... I am still trying to catch up from it, lol!

Let's just say a little busy for me... On Saturday, April 30th I set up for an event that I had been planning for the last 6 months, which was a Celebration of Life for my dear friend Elaine that passed away last year during the peak of the pandemic. Sunday, May 1st was the year anniversary of her passing. Although I couldn't attend the event that I had planned for her, (story to follow) I made sure all the details were taken care of as if I had been there. Thankfully Elaine had many wonderful friends that I called on to help fulfill her wishes for her celebration and according to all that I have heard from, it was a success! Phewww, I lost lots of sleep over this event... but it was worth it all for my dear Elaine. My heart is happy knowing that it went well and my mind is a peace knowing that I fulfilled her last wish.

Unbeknown to me, May 1st was also the same day our Church would also celebrate First Holy Communion and Confirmations. My niece, my cousin's son, and God Son all celebrated their Communion on Sunday morning. Later that afternoon I had the honor of becoming a God Mother/Sponsor to a couple of young ladies that are close friends of the family. Needless to say, I had to be there for these girls. I was sad, that I couldn't attend all the events but somehow everything thankfully worked out in the end. 

CARD RECIPE


To prepare for the weekend I obviously needed to make some Religious Cards for both the Communions and Confirmation. So I needed a design that I could easily replicate and make multiples fairly quickly. This first card was my initial idea for the design, but I quickly realized that this was going to take too long as the embossing involved stamping and heat embossing of multiple stamps and then fussy cutting the cross. So this was the only card I made this way. 

I won't go into details on how the frameless/infinity shakers are assembled only that I used a shaker pocket to make the process more streamlined. For a DIY version of the pockets click HERE.

The gold embossed image was done using the Floral Cross from Studio Katia on vellum paper. The sentiments I used come from the Praying Big Time stamps and coordinating die set from Honey Bee Stamps. For the background of each of the cards, I used the Spring Leaves A2 Pierced Cover Plate. For filler shaker bits, I used a variety of sequins such as the flowers and stars you will see, I won't link to them as many have been discontinued, but for each card, I did use the Cross Glitter.

The next four cards were designed exactly the same, using diffrent colors for a little personalization. These cards feature the Shaker Simple Cross Die from Studio Katia. To keep things simple, I kept the cross die-cut pieces together by adding tape to the back of them to hold all the pieces together. For these cards I also stamped the sentiments on the inside panel of the shaker using the Praying Big Time stamps.

The Bless Script sentiment also comes from the Praying Big Time stamps, then it was die cut using the coordinating die set

So here are the steps to streamline the multiple cards:
  • Dry emboss all the background panels using the Spring Leaves A2 Pierced Cover Plate
  • Stamp out the sentiments on all the panels using the Misti. 
  • Stamp the Bless out 4 times and die cut with the coordinating die.
  • Wrap panels using the A2 Shaker Creator Pocket leaving one side open.
  • Fill with shaker bits.
  • Die-cut Simple Shaker Cross.
  • Glue Cross to the front of the Shaker.
  • Glue the die-cut script Bless to the top of the Cross.
  • Finish the Cross with a coordinating pearl.
  • Attach shaker front to the card base.

As you saw, the difference in these cards was just the colors and the shaker bits to coordinate.

Honestly, I made these last 4 cards in under an hour and a half. Coming up with the design took the longest part of that. But once I had it figured out it went quickly.

I hope you were inspired by my cards today. I know it's Communion and Confirmation season and hopefully, these will inspire you to create some Religious Shakers if you need them. 


Thank you for stopping by and until next time... Happy Crafting!

Trifold See Through Shaker Cards | Honey Bee Stamps

Card Making, Stamping, Die Cutting, handmade card, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, Stamps, how to,

Happy Cyber Monday Crafty Friends! Hope you found some great deals this weekend.

I am back again today with a couple more Trifold See Trough Shaker Cards featuring goodies from Honey Bee Stamps. I told you I had a shaker addiction and I wasn't kidding, lol!

So let me tell you all about this first Rainbow Trifold See Through Card. Isn't she so pretty!?!

Card Making, Stamping, Die Cutting, handmade card, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, Stamps, how to,

Here is how this colorful creation came together.
  • Cut a Slimline Cello Bag to 4 5/16 x 6 1/2" for a vertical A2 size card. 
  • Slide a piece of acetate inside the clear bag cut to A2 size.
  • Fill the clear bag with glitter and rainbow-colored confetti, sorry the mix I used had been discontinued. But I just used a few sequins from each color of the rainbow.
  • Cut a small sliver from the bottom of the front of the card base panel. This will make it easier for the card to close once it is all assembled.
  • Flip the card base upside down so that the fold is on the bottom and the opening is on the top. Like a “V”. Face the panel that is shorter towards you (see the previous step).
  • Place the filled clear bag in front of the upside-down card base and align the sides and the bottoms together. 
  • Fold the overhang of the bag (1 Inch) over the top of the upside-down card base and crease the Cello Bag fold with your fingernails. This will create the flap that you will glue to the back of the card base.
  • Cut the corners of the bag above the crease mark.
  • To the back of the upside-down card, base add 2 strips of double-sided tape. One just under the edge of the card base and one ½’ below that one. Remove the protective piece from the double-sided tape.
  • Center and align the bag in front of the upside-down card base and press the cello flap down onto the double-sided tape.
  • Lay the card flat so that you can still access the opening of the shaker pocket. 
  • Slide a piece along the entire width of the card using double-sided tape. Place the tape strip just above the creased edge of the cello bag flap. 
  • Remove the protective layer and press the bag shut. This will seal the shaker pocket and keep glitter and shaker bits from flowing into the top opening. 
  • Add an extra piece of clear tape along the edge of the cello flap for extra insurance.
  • To finish the back of the card base, glue an A2 panel cut to the same size as the card base. This covers up the bag's flap and becomes the backside of the middle panel of the tri-fold.
  • Finish the front of the panel by adding the holographic rainbow layering snowflakes dies
  • Stamp out the sentiment from the Bitty Buzzwords: Holiday in white and heat set it using white emb. pwd. Cut the strip and add it to the front of the panel.
  • Next, die-cut the holiday from the Bitty Buzzwords: Holiday Dies. Stack and glue three layers of white and then glue it to a black shadow layer. I used a white pearl to dot the "i". Glue the Holiday to the front of the card front to finish off the sentiment.
  • Glue rhinestones to the centers of the snowflakes.

To create a stopper, and keep the front panel propped up and displayed, I glued another snowflake to the bottom panel of the trifold.

On the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Bitty Buzzwords: Holidays The Merry and Bright sentiment just ties the whole card together.

This next Snowman Trifold See Trough Shaker Card was done the exact same way as the previous card. I used silver chunky glitter from Martha Stewart that was not included in the list below, but I bet many of you already have this in your stash!

Card Making, Stamping, Die Cutting, handmade card, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, Stamps, how to,

To the front of this see-through panel, I added the cutest snowman from the Build A Snowman Dies. To the snowman's hat and scarf, I added some white gel dots and a frosting of glitter.

In the image below, you can see the clear see-through front. Behind the snowman, I added a couple of trees from the Pine Tree Dies. To add snow to the trees, I added glue across the tree and the tips that were then covered in glitter. The Season's Greeting Sentiment comes from the Bitty Buzzwords: Holidays stamp set heat embossed in white.

Since I had some snowflakes left from the previous card, I added another snowflake to the front of the card panel that I then finished with a large sequin and a crystal in the center.

To the bottom panel of the trifold, I added the surprise element of a gift card holder made from the Gift Card Pocket Die, die-cut from vellum, and stamped with a sentiment from the Snow Family Like Ours stamp set.
