Shaker cards are all the rage right now in the crafting world!
Believe it or not I don't own a lot of sequins and have never made a shaker card.
I used 2 different techniques to create the shaker cards.
The one on the left uses foam squares to create the 'pocket' for the sequins. The card on the right uses a different technique that is a bit difficult to explain. Instead of foam I used several layers of cardstock to create the pocket for the sequins. I learned this technique from Lucy Abrams (she has a picture tutorial to follow).
While a little more challenging I prefer the second technique because it gives you a polished look when viewing the card from an angle.
My dad REALLY liked his card.
