If you're lucky & you know it, shake this card

This is my first time making a shaker card using my new We R Memory Keepers FUSE Tool & plastic sleeves. Wow, it's really quite easy to use and I don't have to mess around with foam tape!


Sorry that the photo isn't great; I took it early St Paddy's Day morning, before tucking it into my husband's work bag. I wanted to make him something special with the shaped glitter I bought as retail therapy during what has been a stressful week. Plus, I always enjoy an excuse to use my "Lucky" stamp set by SP & Company!

I stamped directly onto white cardstock, colored the images with Copics, and cut out the pot with a finger knife. I used Glossy Accents to add glitter & microbeads to the front of the card; I used the same mix for the inside of the shaker. It's backed onto a silvery paper; I inked the edges with a light green ink. I finished the card with some silver elastic string that came with a box of chocolates!
