Taco Tuesday – Hola Shaker Card

Hello crafty friends!

For my first Taco Tuesday card I chose to make a shaker card. This is especially neat because I was able to “float” the letters with clear thread. The exact method for this technique can be viewed in the video tutorial.

Initially I had not thought to draw a white stitched border but the card just did not feel complete without it. Which is why it is not in the video but I did photograph it.

To add some additional texture I embossed the acetate sheet with a diamond patterned embossing folder (all supplies listed below). And for the contents I used sequins and clear microbeads.

I am including the video below if you’d like to see the entire process for this card.




  • Yellow pattern paper – Recollections 12×12 paper pack (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″)
  • Blue pattern paper – Recollections 12×12 paper pack (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ —Inner Frame is 3 5/16″ x 3 1/16″)
  • Acetate sheet – Repurposed (cut slightly bigger than inner frame)
  • White cardstock with printed words – Recollections


  • Darice cream sequins
  • Clear microbeads – my stash
  • Marvy White gel pen


  • Clear thread – my stash
  • Foam tape – Craft Specialties
  • ScorTape
  • Glue Dots
  • Pattern Embossing Folder – Spellbinders # SES-002
  • Fiskars paper trimmer
  • Exacto Knife
  • EK Success precision Scissors

I am happy to be able to create Spanish and English card projects for any occasion. This is the first for this series but I will definitely incorporate regular Spanish and Bilingual cards and paper projects going forward.

I hope you all enjoyed this card process and if there are any questions on this card or any techniques used let me know in the comments.

I am also taking card suggestions for next week’s What’up Wednesday card post and video so definitely shoot me some ideas via any blog post comments or comments through YouTube.

Thank you all for taking time out to view my posts and/or watch my videos! I could not be more grateful to each and every one of you!
