Quick & Easy Shaker w/ White Rose Crafts Barista Blend Kit

Hello Doodle Fans! Amber here, sharing a quick and easy shaker card I created with the May Barista Blend Kit from White Rose Crafts

This is definitely my favorite White Rose Crafts Kit to date, and I'm certainly not alone since this kit has already sold out as a stand alone kit! WOW!

If you read to the end of this post, I've provided links to some of the products included in the kit, as well as some excellent alternative products you could use to get very similar results :-) 
Oh--and a coupon code, too!


I absolutely had to use the adorable little Jillibean Soup Cocoa/Coffee Mug PVC Shaker and matching die cut card, included in the kit. These are great because they're a standard A2 size card, (4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches) which is the size I prefer to work with. I started by pulling out that gorgeous Papermania Geometric Mocha Washi Tape from the kit, adding two diagonal stripes in the top left and bottom right corners. 

Next, I cut a piece of the American Crafts Coffee cardstock (included) to 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 inches and adhered it to the inside right panel of the card using Washi Tape, to hold it in place where I wanted it. Then I closed the card and chose  a sentiment sticker from the Echo Park Coffee sticker sheet. and placed it where I wanted it, inside the die cut opening, directly onto the brown cardstock. I opened the card again and placed the PVC shaker pouch inside, and added a moderate amount of the Caffeinated Sparkle Blend (Exclusive to kit) on the sticker, on the opposite panel, before removing the adhesive from the PVC pouch and closing the card once again, making sure to press down on all edges to seal it well. Next, I added some double sided tape to the same side of the brown panel that the shaker is on and closed the card one more time, to adhere the whole panel to the inside cover of the card. 

I fussy cut the coffee cup sticker from the Echo Park sticker sheet, leaving a small white border, and adhered it to the bottom left of the card. I decided I wanted something in the top right, for balance, and added the coffee bean heart sticker. For a final, cute touch, I used the Caramel Cream Nuvo Drops to draw steam coming off the coffee mug shaker.

I really kept the inside of this card simple, adding two parallel, vertical strips of the Washi tape and two sentiment stickers from the included sheet.


If you managed to get your hands on one of these fabulous kits, I hope today's cards have inspired you to really get creative with the contents!
