The bonus lessons for the wrap-up day of the Clear and Sheer card class were on shaker cards. I’ve made a few shaker cards in the past, but I’ve always used acetate for them; it had never occurred to me to use vellum, so I had to give it a go.
And I really like the result. From the distressed embossing on the front to the way the sequins and the background paper are muted by the vellum, and not forgetting the sound the sequins make against the vellum. I really ought to revisit this technique…
