There's nothing more fun than shaker cards! However, the amount of foam adhesive that traditional shaker cards use makes it a little tricky to pull one off. This is a simple way to make a shaker card without messing with the adhesive!
First, I cut a piece of patterned paper down to slightly smaller than my card base and adhered it down. Next, I took a piece of vellum and cut it into a flag shape. I stamped and embossed some butterflies in gold embossing powder, and then also embossed around the edges. I used a little tape adhesive to adhere the flag down on top of the background paper. BUT I DID NOT PUT ADHESIVE ON THE TOP OF THE VELLUM FLAG. This is important, because you need to leave the top open in order to fill the pocket with your shaker goodies.
I then ran the card through my sewing machine to sew down the sides of the flag pocket, again leaving the top open. Then I filled the pocket with several colors of sequins and some tiny clear beads.
After your pocket is filled, go ahead and sew the top shut.
You;ve just made a fun shaker pocket card! I added a die cut "mother" to the front, and stamped and embossed the rest of the sentiment and adhered it below.
I hope you take a look at the process video to see how I did this in more detail!
Thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
