Here is what I made..
I do not make a lot of shaker cards. I love them, I just have a hard time making them!! I don't own a fuse tool or even have extra acetate packaging kicking around...that's how often I make them :). So I had to think outside the box for this card. I ended up using a CD storage pocket for my shaker, as I do have A LOT of those. I trimmed a white piece of cardstock to 4.25 X 4.25 and embossed it with a dot embossing folder. I die cut the word "Big" three times and adhered them together then glued that to the embossed panel. I stamped all the layers for the flowers and the leaves to create those pretty flowers and also adhered them onto the base panel. At this point I realized I didn't actually have a sentiment stamped...of course. So, out came my MISTI to help me stamp the word Hugs. I slipped the panel into the CD pocket and added some tiny hearts, yellow sequins and a few silver hearts confetti. I adhered the pocket closed with some double sided adhesive and BOOM, done!! To finish off, I tied a piece of black ribbon around the top and then adhered the entire shaker onto a square card base (this will hide the back of the pocket). This card measures 5X5.
I hope you enjoyed my shaker card and play along with us for this Linky Party!!
