Although I am showing them today as tree ornaments, note that any of them can be adhered to an A2 card front. Just add a sentiment, and you’ll have yourself a finished holiday card!
Here’s a quick review of what these Shaker Card Kits include as described on the Kat Scrappiness “Shop” page:
- Shaker Element Shape Base (3mm thick)
- Transparent film cut to fit the shape perfectly
- Decorative Frame Overlay.
You can use the decorative frame overlay the way it is which is a milky white color or you can change the color with any medium you choose such as ink, markers, watercolors, paints, etc. Anything you can use on paper/cardstock, you can use to color your frame the color(s) you’d like.
When the shaker is completed the approximate height of the shaker portion is 5mm.
Let’s get started! My first shaker ornament was created using the “Winter Village Ornament Shaker Card Kit.”
I colored the outer ring with a C9 Copic Marker, and then painted the village scene with white acrylic paint. For the background I used an Echo Park Christmas patterned paper and filled the shaker with Kat’s “White Snowflake Sprinkles.” As I will do for all four ornaments, I attached a handmade embellishment at the top using a hot glue gun.
I used the “Cardinal Bird Ornament Shaker Card Kit” for my second ornament.
I painted the frame overlay with red acrylic paint and used a patterned paper from PhotoPlay’s “Kringle & Co.” paper pad for the background. For the shaker element, I combined Kat‘s “White Snowflake Sprinkles” and “Red Jewels.”
For my third ornament, I used the “Snowflake Ornament Shaker Card Kit.”
I painted the frame overlay with white acrylic paint and used a black and white checked paper, again from the PhotoPlay’s “Kringle & Co.” paper pad, for the background. Kat’s “Christmas Red Sequins” provide the “shake.”
My final ornament features Kat‘s “Ornate Christmas Ornament Shaker Card Kit.”
I painted this frame overlay with silver acrylic paint and used a red and black checked paper from the same PhotoPlay’s“Kringle & Co.” paper pad. Inside the shaker ornament, I adhered several of Kat‘s “Sparkling Clear Jewels.”
