Good Tuesday Tutorial morning to you...this is Lisa. Its my turn to make a little inspiring (I hope) tutorial for you.  My Marine son has been home visiting before he deploys to Afghanistan next month. Such a blessing. 

Now onto our tutorial. Today I will show you how easy it is to make a shaker card using Color Digital Images.  

Here is the Color Digi Shaker Card we are making today. 
Using two Digis:
ICE CREAM SOCIAL COLOR (banana split image_

First we'll start with the inside of our card.  My black card base is 5 x 5, fold at the top, from a piece of 5 x 10" cardstock.  The inside white cardstock piece is 4 3/4 x 4 3/4".  In Publisher I placed my png banana split outline image from ICE CREAM SOCIAL COLOR DIGI  and then washed it out to make a faint image so you can still write over the top of it. Then I placed the png sentiment from BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION DIGI and recolored it red.  You can learn how to RECOLOR digital images in the past HOW TO RECOLOR YOUR DIGIS WITH DIANE tutorial. 

Here is our front panel.  The png colored banana split image is printed onto white cardstock cut to 4 3/4 x 4 3/4".  In Publisher I placed the png Happy Birthday sentiment also from the ICE CREAM SOCIAL COLOR DIGI directly onto my image.  The png image is transparent so you can place on top of another image.

This is front panel 4 3/4 x 4 3/4" that will go over our image.  I used the largest Spellbinders Circle Nestabilities die from the large circles set.  I embossed the circle edge as well. 

This is how they will overlap each other. 

 Place score tape on the back of your red panel to adhere our acetate (clear cardstock). 

Now adhere your 4 3/4 x 4 3/4 acetate piece to the back of your red front panel. 

Place 1/8" thick diemsional tape on the back with no gaps along the edge of the die cut out so your fill does not fall out. Then put 1 teaspoon of candy sprinkles on top of acetate in circle.  Then adhere second 4 3/4 x 4 3/4 piece of acetate. I did this to contain the sprinkles and so there is a barrier between them and my image since it is candy. 

After adhering acetate, adhere your image panel then cover with score tape to adhere to card front.

Now you are ready to adhere to your card front.

Here is what it looks like adhered to the card front.   You're done. Wasn't that simple.

Here's another Color Digi Shaker Card I made using HANG IN THERE COLOR DIGI
