I don’t know about you but I love shaker cards!  We always think of giving them to children but I have several adult friends that enjoy these cards!

I wanted to design a card for valentines that didn’t have the usually hearts and such. (Although I love those as well).  This Bundle was perfect.

Stampin Up® comes out with suites that include Stamp set bundles, Designer Series Paper, Ribbon, etc but this bundle did not have any paper to go with it!  So what to do?  Design your own paper!

Now this bundle did come with some fun coordinating items such as the Frosted Beads Assortment and the Gumball Machine Shaker Domes so I used those to create this fun card!

Card cuts:
Card Base: Thick Basic White – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4
Card Stock: Basic White – (2) 3 3/4 x 5, 1 x 1
Gorgeous Grape – (2) 4 x 5 1/4, 3 1/2 x 4 1/2 
Specialty Paper – Silver Foil – 2 x 2
1. Using the Stitched Rectangle Dies:
* Cut out the center of one of the 4 x 5 1/4 pieces.  Adhere the frame that is left to the front of the card base.

* Set aside the inside piece which should be about 3 1/2 x 4 1/2 

2.  To create your background it’s best to use a stamparatus if you have if not you can do it by hand.

*Using the following inks – Gorgeous Grape, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Bermuda Bay and Polished Pink.

 * Next using the long border stamp either (set it up on the stamparatus or apply to a long block)  Then stamp image onto the top of one of the 3 3/4 x 5 Basic White piece in Daffodil Delight.

*If using the stamparatus move down a hinge then reink with next color and stamp again or move down 3/4″ and stamp in next color. The order I used is Daffodil Delight -Gorgeous Grape- Bermuda Bay – Granny Apple Green – Polished Pink. 

*Then using the gumball images stamp in Daffodil delight in lower open section.  Move up to next section use the Licorice image and stamp in Gorgeous Grape, Next use the Heart stamp and stamp in next section using Polished Pink – Move to next section and using Granny Apple Green stamp the gumball images again – last move up to last section using Bermuda Bay and stamp the Licorice image again in this section.  

3. Using the Gumball Machine Dies:

* Using the Gumball die cut out an opening in the Basic white piece that you just stamped on about 1 1/2″ from top edge and centering. 

* Take the 3 1/2 x 4 1/2 Gorgeous Grape piece and apply some Adhesive strips to the back, cut out the Gumball bottom, Detailed Gumball bottom piece, Gumball top and the two strip dies for the top and bottom edge of the Gumball top.  Leave enough space to cut a strip that will be 1/2 x 3 1/2. 

*Now build your pieces for the Gumball machine together and set aside.

* Using the Silver Foil cut out the embossed machine front and the handle.  Set aside.

* Using the 1 x 1 Basic White piece stamp the small 5c coin image in Gorgeous Grape then use the die to cut it out.  Set aside.

4.  Using the Gorgeous Grape strip that you cut previously rub with an embossing buddy, stamp sentiment in Versa Mark ink, cover with White Embossing Powder, flick off excess powder then heat up with heat tool.  


1.  Pull off the front tape from the Gumball Machine Shaker Dome and fit it into the Stamped Basic White piece from the back side.  

* Apply adhesive to the back of the paper then pull off the tape from the back of the Gumball Machine Shaker Dome.  (This is where you need to be careful)

 * First place the bottom only to the card front.  Hold the rest away from the card front.  Then add the Frosted Beads to the dome.  Turn the card away from you and lay face down onto your table push down and attach it all together.  

2. Turn to front side then add the Gumball Machine bottom below the dome and the Gumball top above the dome.

* Using a Round black brad attach the silver handle to the Silver Gumball machine front. 

* Using a mini glue dot slide the coin into the slot on the Silver machine front. 

*Using Mini Stampin Dimensionals adhere the Silver piece to the front just above the flap that opens.  

3.  Adhere the sentiment label above the Gumball machine as shown. 

4.  Inside of card:

* Using Bermuda Bay ink stamp the sentiment in the center of the other 3 3/4 x 5 Basic White piece and the small gumball machine in the lower right hand corner. 

*Adhere to the Gorgeous Grape matte.

*Adhere both to the inside of the card.
