EASY DIY SHAKER CARDS

Hey, everyone! Ken here with Ken's Kreations!

A huge trend currently in the card making craft community is shaker cards. I LOVE any card that encourages the recipient to be interactive with it. Shaker cards are at the top of the list, as they not only encourage people to use them but usually generate a HUGE smile! However, sometimes make shaker cards can be a huge task. Now you will find many tutorials on how to build your own shaker cards, but I have found a way to make shaker cards in less than 5 minutes. How? Well, let's chat about that! 




Recently scrolling through Facebook, I found a company called Queen & Co which has some amazing products! But the items that caught my eye were their Shaker Card Kits! Now they offer a few different kits that caught my eye. The first one was the Shaker Shape Kit which comes with metal dies, foam risers, acetate sheet and enough product to make about 2-6 cards. These kits also feature a refill item called Shaker Card Kits Foam Kit. The other item Queen & Co offers is the Foam Fronts Shaker Card Kit. so what is the difference and how do you use them?

 To show off how all the products differ and how to use them, I decided to host a LIVE video on YouTube! This was part of my Make-It-Monday LIVE Series.

Remember this was a LIVE YouTube video. A couple of things to remember is that during the live feed I answered questions from viewers as I walked through the entire process. We try to state the question before answering it. This is a MUCH longer video than most of my other videos due to the LIVE nature and NO EDITING. 

Below you will see other photos of the projects and all the supplies I used in the video. If you use these links, it helps support Ken's Kreations! This will bring more content to all of you! to find out ALL the ways you can support Ken's Kreations make sure you CLICK HERE.



Now, I know a lot was covered in this video! So I wanted to break down everything we chatted about! Below you will see other photos of the projects and all the supplies I used in the video.

Every time I host a Make-It-Monday project, I plan the project ahead of time and do a mocked up version of the card, and the other card is the one created LIVE during the broadcast. You can see the slight differences in the cards below. The one I created during the broadcast I wanted to focus on more of a pink, red and green combo. However, because of the Shaker Shape Kit creating the cards were easy! In fact, the one card I made in preparation of the video was created in about 10 minutes!

The Shaker Shape Kit is the HUGE hit right now. These are innovative theme shaker sets. These versatile sets are ideal for cards as well as layouts. Each set includes dies and coordinating foam shapes. The themed kits include adhesive foam shapes, acetate covers, metal dies and a storage package. Depending if you use multiple elements on the card you should be able to make anywhere between 4-8 cards with each kit! CLICK HERE for a quick video tutorial on these cards!
PLEASE NOTE, the Shaker Shape Kit DO NOT include any toppings or decorations. Here are all the options you can get:



And I already know what you are going to ask. What do I do when I run out of foam shapes. Well, Queen & Co has you covered!


Every Shaker Shape Kit offers a Shaker Foam Refill Kit that allows you to continue with the fun and magic of these cards! These Shaker Foam Refill Kit come with 9 foam and acetate covers that you can order. You can also store these in the Shaker Shape Kit storage pouch. You can find all of these designs:
Now I understand some people do not want the hassle of dies, or maybe the cost of the Shaker Shape Kit is too steep. Well, in my research of these shaker cards I also found another amazing item offered by Queen & Co that also helps you make shaker cards in a pinch. 


The Foam Front Shaker Cards are another amazing offering from Queen & Co that are a little more budget friendly. Create shaker cards in just minutes with the Foam Front Shaker Cards Kits.
