Take a look at my card:
I love making shaker cards but in the past they use to be so cumbersome with the foam tape and all. Now that I have the We R Memory Tool Fuse, making shaker cards are a breeze!! No bulk and no foam tape.
Thank you Jennifer McGuire for this amazing tip!!
You want to know how I created this?
Here you go:
1. I trimmed my card panel slightly smaller then my card base.
2. I used Top Dog Dies Heart Doily Die to cut a heart in the center of my card panel.
3. I used the negative and saved the heart shape for another card.
4. To create my shaker pocket, I used the heart die and placed it on my plastic window sheet.
5. I used the fuse tool and traced around the outside of the die to seal the plastic together, leaving a small portion open to add the sequin.
6. I add Lucy Adams Phosphorescence sequin from Lucy’s Card Little Things Collection to my shaker pocket.
7. I lined up the heart die with the shaker pocket and used the fuse to close up the hole in my shaker pocket.
8. I trimmed off the excess plastic around the heart.
9. I die cut my Studio Calico pattern paper, which is the NYC skyline, with the same heart die and adhered it the card base.
10. I used Mama Elephant Good Times Stamp Set to stamp my sentiment with My Favorite Things Hybrid Ink.
12. I adhered the shaker pocket to the back of the card panel with adhesive.
13. I wanted the card panel to lift off of the card base so I added Stampin’ Up! Dimensionals and adhered the card panel the card base.
Super easy to create!! This has to be my all time favorite card to make now that its so easy.
