Just Sparkle Shaker Tag Card

Hi everyone!  When I saw the Sparkle stamp set from Shanna Noel and Studio Calico, I just knew I had to have it!  The saying are right up my alley.  And I knew it called for sequins...and a lot of them. I decided to take this opportunity to make a tag shaker card and use all of my sparkling sequins from Studio Calico and Pretty Pink Posh.


I started by creating my "tag".  It's actually the Business Card Holder Die from Lifestyle Crafts.  I thought this would make a perfect holder for all my little round beauties.  I cut it from vellum and added a piece of transparency to the inside to keep the "guts" from seeping out of the slit in the front. In order to cut down on the amount of adhesive I had to use for assembly, I decided to sew my business card holder around the edge.  This way I didn't have to worry about adhesive showing through.


I added lots of sequins to the business card holder.  I mixed sequins from Studio Calico and Pretty Pink Posh to give me a variety of bright colors and metallic gold.  I also added a variety of sizes to make it more interesting.  There's even a couple of star sequins in there.

Since this card was all about sparkle, I found lots of ways to add in even more sparkly gold accents.  The sentiment is embossed in gold.  I matted the card front and sentiment with my favorite gold glitter card stock.  And I added a bow made from my favorite gold thread.  I took every opportunity possible to make this card sparkle and shine!


I have included a how to video below, walking you through the entire creation of this card.  I have also linked all the supplies used in this project below.

I hope you have been inspired by this very sparkly card.  For more inspiration, be sure to follow me on Instagram and subscribe to me on YouTube!
