I haven't tried too many shaker cards yet, mostly because of the ridiculous amount of foam adhesive it usually takes. I recently saw one of Kristina Werner's shaker cards and just had to try my own version.
I've had two new, beautiful nieces in the last few months so I thought a baby card was appropriate. I stamped and colored the little elephant with my distress inks and watercolor brush, and set him aside to dry. Then, I watercolored a background and after that was dry, sewed a piece of clear acetate over the top, leaving one side open until after I filled it with glitter.
I then stamped the greeting, and adhered all the pieces on top of the acetate with my ATG. I did put a little piece of foam adhesive behind the balloon, though, to pop it up for a little dimension.
It was super simple to assemble, and I am loving this way to make shaker cards!
