Shaker Card Question?
I've made a couple of shaker cards recently, and have had fun doing them. Only trouble I've had is when I do layers of the foam tape to raise the frame up from the card, the sides of the foam tape are sticky. The shaker stuff, sequins, beads, whatever, sticks to the sides of the foam tape. Am I doing something wrong or skipping a step? :confusion:

You can rub alittle baby powder on your finger and then rub your finger on the sides of the foam tape. Baby powder takes the sticky away. But use it sparing cause you don't want powder inside of your shaker.
I have seen Jennifer on her site cut fun foam and glue them together then on your card, gives the hight of tape without the sticky.

If you have an embossing Buddy (a little pillow filled with something like cornflour and often recommended for papercrafters to remove static from cardstock before embossing on it) you can puff the side of the tape with that, too.

I even use my embossing buddy to remove stickiness and shininess from adhesive that has wound up where I didn't intend it to be ;)

Good to know. Having a tool with more then one purpose is useful!

Don't yell at me! (LOL) I don't know if this will work or not. I have heard about the powder and that little $5.00 Embossing Buddy thingy, but has anyone used a softener sheet where you don't want things to cling? Do you think that will work?
I AM JUST ASKING BECAUSE I DON'T KNOW.:confusion: Okay, I am leaving now to give you all a chance to think about this. Bye.:wave:

I haven't tried a dryer sheet on a shaker card so far but I have used it to help clean up after glitter spills. If it is really messy spill, I keep the sheet in a zippy to be used later in a mixed media piece.
