Tuesday Tutorial

I simply adore shaker cards. They are the cutest little creations and so simple to make.  Today, I am going to show you how to create the frame for this Easter Shaker Card using the Slice and Weld features in Cricut® Design Space.


Design Space Instructions:
1. Begin by inserting a 5″ Square and 6″ Circle shapes then ALIGN CENTER and WELD.

2. Insert a 4″ Square shape then ALIGN CENTER and SLICE.

3. Insert Hoppy easter pop up card – #M1067BD into your Canvas and DELETE everything except the Bunny image.
4. Align the Bunny image against the inner left side of the frame. SELECT ALL and WELD the images.

6. Resize the image to the size needed for the front of your card.

I chose to embellish my card with images from our Flower Market collection, Gimme Some Sugar papers, and Make Waves Sequins.  I also chose to add some shimmer using our Bashful Shimmer Brush on the flower and bow.


I hope you take the time to try to create this shaker card frame in  Cricut® Design Space.  Many people avoid creating a shaker card because the can be difficult to mail. If you do not like the bulk of shaker cards, our Memory Protector Flip-Flaps are perfect for creating shaker cards without the bulk.  I can’t wait to see what you create!

  1. Gorgeous card …love your paper selection and all the embellishments ….what material did you use to hold the sequins in?….and wonder if you couldn’t just do a ‘faux’ shaker and attach the sequins with a look like you have pictured above!!! 🙂 Thanks for all your tutorials!

    1. I used a piece of acetate with foam tape for my shaker, but, like I stated in the tutorial, you can use a Flip-Flap and “attach” the sequins in place so that they card is a little flatter. I am glad you enjoyed the tutorial. 🙂
