Festive Fourth of July Card

By Card Making and Paper Crafts Contributor Heidi. Follow Heidi on Instagram @bluescallopcreations.

This time of year brings lots of cookouts and fun activities at friends’ and families’ homes—especially for the 4th of July.   It’s always nice to bring a dish or small gift for the host, so why not include a fun little note as well?  I found a great way to use the Sizzix Scribbles & Splat die cut set just for this purpose.


I thought a shaker card would be fun, but I didn’t have any type of firecracker die to use as an opening.  Cut to me flipping through my dies and I came across this die set.  Great for backgrounds, but why not try the “splat” for my fireworks I thought?


I took a panel of white cardstock and die cut 2 of the “splats” onto it at a diagonal.


To create my shaker, I adhered some clear cardstock over the back of the panel and added foam tape around the edges making sure the corners touched.


Before covering my blue notecard with the shaker window, I adhered some white cardstock to the front and poured some multicolored seed beads onto it.  Be sure to add a lot, because you want to be able to see them (they roll around a lot).  I chose the beads because they make a fun sound that kind of mimics the sound of fireworks.

To finish off the card, I added sentiments and stars using some 4thof July themed stickers from Sticko.

Here’s another version where I covered the small holes with silver Stickles glitter glue.  You could try other colors too to see what works.

Thanks for joining me today.  I hope your summer is getting off to a great start!
