Shaker Card Obsession

So, I know shaker cards have been around for a while.  But, for some reason I never cared about them until now.  I have become obsessed with shaker cards.  I am not sure why but I just love them all of a sudden!  I bought a bunch of micro beads on clearance at Michael's, so I'm ready to make a whole slew of 'em!


When I made this card, I hadn't yet accumulated all my beautiful micro beads, so I used my hole punch and punched a ton of holes to fill the "window".


I'm really happy with the way it turned out!  I cut "Thanks" using my Silhouette Cameo.  I used a fancy font, then welded the letters together.


For the window, I used acetate paper.  I found a really good deal on this through Amazon. It's by Grafix and you get 25 sheets for about 10 bucks with free shipping if you're a Prime member.  Love this stuff!  You can buy it here:



Have you ever made a shaker card?  If so, I'd love to see it!  Please share!
