For the graduates in my life this year I have made a fun shaker card. I expanded on the shaker cards from an earlier post.
First I printed the sentiment on the paper using my Pazzles' software to print and cut. Next I cut out the square for the window. I used acetate to "close" the window. As in the previous post, I used foam tape to raise the whole top layer of the card. This allows the sequins to shake. I personalized the card of each graduate with his school color. Using a number of layers to mat the card gives depth and classes it up. I added a mortar board (cap) on top of the "window" using foam tape as well. I think these turned out quite lovely.
