The theme of January’s card class was “shaker cards” and in addition to the Valentine card shared in my last post, attendees were also able to make a birthday shaker card and an all occasion shaker card. 
Birthday Shaker Card using Stampin’ Up! Big Day and Sketched Birthday Stamp Sets with Birthday Bash Designer Series Paper

All Occasion Shaker Card using Stampin’ Up! Hello You Thinlits Dies, Crisp Cantaloupe Card Stock and Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper

The technique for the birthday card was varied in that the shaker sequins were “sandwiched” between two pieces of window sheet and a circle cut from the card front.  This makes it possible to see the birthday sentiment stamped on the interior of the card through the shaker area.  To create a “photo” effect on the shaker of the all occasion card, the square framelits were used to cut an area from a texture embossed rectangle of card stock.  When you’re looking for a fun card to make and to send, consider the shaker card!
