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!!

Here are all the CDD products I used:

Thanks for stopping by!!!


  1. It's brilliant! Shows how you don't always need all the fancy tools, just imagination! (Although you know I love my gadgets!!) it's a gorgeous card. Xx

  2. Another style I haven't tried yet... love the whole card encased in a shaker... this is gorgeous!

  3. Wonderful. After seeing this I'm not sure exactly what a CD storage pocket is. I know what a CD plastic case is and a CD sleeve but this has the white paper with the plastic circle on front. I'll google what the CD storage pocket is. Have a BEE-utiful day!

    1. I googled and found out about the CD storage pocket. I need to get some of those. Have a $10 Office Max/Depot rewards coupon so I may see if they have them. Have a BEE-utiful day!
