Hello from Sandhya of Sanju’s Creations. Today, I am sharing how I created two birthday shaker cards with alcohol ink backgrounds and Unity stamps. I made one masculine card in blues and a feminine card in peachy shades.
Technique Details for Birthday Shaker Cards
The best part about these shaker cards is that they are flat and easy to mail. The key to making these flat shaker pouches is a pliable transparency sheet for inkjet printing. This acetate holds up well, doesn’t get scratched easily, and creates this bubbled-up effect perfect for a shaker card. It is also easy to fold over as you can see in my process video below. HD video is available on my YouTube Channel.
In my video, I also show how I create fun alcohol backgrounds that are great for card panels. If you follow me on Instagram, you will know that I am doing the 100-day project playing with alcohol inks. Connect with me there to follow along my alcohol ink journey. Here are some close-up pictures of the shaker cards.
