Graduation Shaker Card

I've been wanting to make this card since last year, but didn't get around to it in time. This is a basic shaker card using some things that I had from a previous Paper Pumpkin kit, but I also show you a workaround with some current Stampin' Up!© supplies.

I made this in silver and black so it can be used for any graduation, college, trade school, home school or high school. I love shaker cards, I think they are so much fun. One thing to note when mailing, you will need extra postage because of it being a little bit thicker, but if you are hand delivering, no worries.

The only thing that I would change is using black Dimensionals instead of white, when adhering the shaker front to the card base. I'll do that when I make my gold versions.

The basic dimensions:

Basic Black

Card base 4-1/4" x 11", scored at 5-1/2"

Scrap for cap 4" x 2-1/2"

Basic White:

Front: 4" x 5-1/4"

Back of shaker: 3-3/4" x 3-3/4" (I did 4" x 4" in the video but this will work better)

Silver Foil: 4-1/8" x 5-3/8"


Dies for top white layer and circles. I used my retired Stitched Shapes and retired Rectangle Stitched dies. You could substitute Every Day Details, it has both circles and rectangles, or whatever you have in your stash.

The stamp set that I used for Congratulations is Loveliest Tree #163714 but you probable have one in your stash.

The template for the graduation hat will be in my Digital Download on this site, if you want to use the same on that I did.

This card and the gold version will be available in my Card Shoppe, along with other graduation cards.

This is a link to the confetti the I purchased on Amazon. There are also several other colors available. I like this one because it doesn't have a graduation year in it. But if you would like that option those are available.

I'd love to hear if you give this a try. I had a lot of fun making it and am looking forward to making more. Make sure to subscribe to my blog, Facebook group and my YouTube channel!
