When I was thinking about what I wanted to do with this cute koala, I thought he would look cute framed in a shaker card. To start the card, I cut the koala from white cardstock and sponged him with Tea Dye and Antique Linen ink. The blanket and baby bottle were colored with Copic markers.
Then I cut the card base and shaker pieces. I tried an experiment and instead of using foam tape to create my shaker box, I cut three layers of white fun foam with the Wide Circle Frame die.
After the glue had dried, I brushed the insides of the foam with some baby powder to make it less "sticky" (just in case some of the glue seeped out from between the layers and glued the shaker frame to the card base -- just on one side.
I constructed the koala using foam pop dots and glue. It was at this point that I realized that he really should be sitting on a rug and cut one from another piece of patterned paper, which I glued to the inside of the acetate.
I did enjoy making this shaker card and hope you might give it a try.
