I saw this card kit at one of my favorite stores and decided to get a couple to put together. I bought several different ones so we will talk about the others later.
This one was a shaker card, meaning you put glitter or something small behind a piece of acetate. Everything was included in the kit to make 6 cards, 2 of each design.
I should tell you that I have never made a shaker card. I know how to but haven’t really ever made one. I didn’t think about how much of the glitter/confetti to put in. The directions didn’t say. I saw that the kit comes with 6 cards and 2 packs of confetti, so a third of the pack of glitter per card?
Well, those of you with experience making these will know that it was way too much!!! I didn’t really get it right until about halfway through.
My next mishap was the aligning. They had all the adhesive already so I just peeled and lined up the card front. Well, I guess I’m not too good at that either!!! They are all off at least a little! Then at least one side is sticky. My solution was of course good old baby powder!
I’m posting this to tell you all that no one gets it right the first time and that’s ok!!! If you get a card from me and you can’t read the sentiment because of too much bling in the shaker card, know that I love you so much that I wanted you to have a BIG, BIG party!!!!
