3 shaker card ideas with catherine pooler designs

I love how easy it is to create an extra special handmade card with a shaker element! And using rainbow colors & patterned paper feels like the extra cherry on top!
The new Catherine Pooler Forever 13 makes middle-school-aged Carly so happy! It is so bright and fun! It reminds me of my beloved (and long lost) Lisa Frank sticker collection and having parties a Skate King (the roller rink everyone went to when I was a kid).

My first thought (as it often is) was to create some shaker cards to add even more color and more fun!
For the first card, I made an "infinity" or full panel shaker card. I love how it turned out with that rainbow stripe paper! If you haven't made an infinity shaker yet, here's a how to video that might help. And definitely try it! It's so fun!!!
I LOVE giant word dies and the Essentials by Ellen Mondo OMG seemed to be the perfect addition to this collection.
And another thing I love to do is pair stamped words with die cut ones. For this card, I masked the sentiment stamp twice with some low tack tape right on the stamp before inking. I place tape over the part I don't want to stamp, ink it up and then remove the tape before stamping.

For the first mask, I covered the bottom of the stamp so only "let the" would stamp. Then I die cut "good" underneath it. And finally stamped "times roll" underneath with the same tape masking technique.

I hope your day involves something with rainbows & sequins. I'm sending lots of love to everyone during this stressful time!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
