FMS 580 – Brother Scan N Cut happy dance

This week’s challenge over at FMS is a fun one with a LOT of room for interpretation. There are a variety of ideas presented by the Design Team for your inspiration but I hope to provide one more. When I saw the sketch (below), I immediately thought of cards I had seen in the past with a bunch of shaker windows.

But how to create something like this? Well, my amazing hubby gave me a Brother Scan N Cut for Christmas this past year so I got to work creating a template for cutting a frame with openings just like the sketch. I cut four pieces out of Hammermill 100lb card, stacked and adhered them eliminating the need for dimensional adhesive. Woohoo! After coloring and cutting out an adorable image by StampingBella, I pulled out sequins and some leftover die cuts to create this:

Heehee! Shaker cards are so fun. Every time I have given one to an adult, it’s been met with a childlike joy. Isn’t that the best? Here’s a closeup for another look…

Thanks for stopping by to check out my card. I hope you enjoyed it!


    • Hi, Linda. Sorry for the delay! I wanted to provide recommendations but was out of town w/o my computer. I recommend these youtube channels: Papered Chef, Alonda Craft and the Brother Scan N cut channel. They helped me to learn how to use the Canvas workspace, especially the ‘canvas overlap’ options which allow you to merge or remove shapes within shapes. By simply using the free shapes provided on the app, you can create card fronts with windows in the shapes and locations you want to use. I cut 4 per page so they could be stacked and provide enough space for the sequins. Hope this helps!
