Floating Shaker Card with TAWS


Welcome! Today I’m on the Alley Way Stamps blog sharing a how-to video using their adorable Halloween stamp set, Ghoul-Friend.

I created a floating shaker card. The basic idea, is that the shaker is suspended in between two layers so it looks like it’s floating. You can get a better look at the card by watching my YouTube Tutorial, below, or on my channel.

I’ve been on a total oval binge lately. I feel like 90% of the projects I create these days, start at my computer in Silhouette Studio where I’m setting up a stitched oval cut file. To me, ovals kind of feel like a window into a story.

For this card, I knew I wanted to try a floating shaker idea that I’ve been contemplating for a while. I’m so happy that it turned out well and that the sequins do really look like they’re floating when you shake the card! Also, I think the charcoal glitter paper is the perfect finishing touch for a glam Halloween card.



That’s it for today. Hope you’re having a great weekend! Until next time,

  1. Hi Julia. Love the card. And, you were exactly right about the glitter frame around the shaker window. It made all the difference, especially with the glitter paper behind it. This is the first video I have watched of yours and I found the background music a bit distracting (I hope you don’t mind me saying). I found you through TAWS, just in case you like to know.
