Handmade Card – The First Shaker Card I Made

何年か前から流行っているシェーカー・カード(透明の窓からスパンコールなどが入っていてシャカシャカするカード)を初めて作りました。子供っぽすぎるのではと敬遠していましたが、なかなか良い感じ。でも、型でカットした紙にカットに合わせてスタンプをするのがとても難しくて何度も失敗したり他にもいろいろ失敗し、なかなか手強いカードでした。(Jennifer McGuire さんのこのビデオの中のカード参考。)

Shaker cards have been very popular in the card making world in the last few years but this is the first one I ever made.  I first thought it looked too childish but finally thought maybe it’s cute – I’m happy with the way how it looks.  I must admit this took me forever to complete, though.  After cutting the window with a die you stamp a few stamps – it was so hard to get them in the right (or close to right) places!  I don’t know how people do it so easily on videos.
