VIDEO: How to Wow – Shaker & Shadow

Jul 13, 2017 | Birthday Cards, Congratulations Cards | 1 comment

Welcome to another Tic Tac Toe challenge! Team X is in the house this week – and I have TWO How to Wow videos for you!

This week’s featured designer is Shannon Fralish. She has such a fun design featuring the bottom row. I was inspired by top row – Shadow, Layers, Square.

Play along at the Tic Tac Toe Challenge - Inspiring you 8-ways each week! Find us @tttchallenge or New challenges every Thursday!

So, here we have a square card, with a square cutout, along with layers to make a shaker card, and a fun shadow on the sentiment. This is one of my most favorite cards recently. It looks equally as stunning in person as it does in the photo below.

Today, I have not one, but TWO How to Wow videos. I couldn’t decide whether I wanted to share how I made the fun colored embellishments in the shaker card, or how I accomplished the Lemon Lime Twist shadow on the sentiment. SO, I did both!

Now you can totally make this card too! Here’s some other tips

  • Don’t overfill your shaker. There needs to be enough room for the contents to shake and not get stuck. While you’re at it, only make the shaker space slightly larger than the window. That way, you’re not needing to add more shaker stuff than you need.
  • The shadow technique can be done with just about any sentiment. It’s best to use black for the main image so when you stamp the shadow, it doesn’t show through
  • The finished size of the card is 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 – that way, if I want to send the card, I can fit it in a regular sized envelope and not need extra postage!
