Shake it Up on Your Birthday
We have finally decided to move to Texas to be closer to our daughters and so we have been doing a major cleanup. One of those things was to go through some items leftover from old Simon Says Stamp Monthly Card Kits. I ran across a couple of shaker pouches. I forgot to note who made them, but I decided to go ahead a make a card using them.
The first shaker pouch was a mason jar with a matching tag. The tag is a folded tag which will create the front and back of the shaker. I pulled out a streamer stencil and ink blended the front of the tag with blue, green, and yellow. I filled the pouch with sequins of the same colors and removed the protecting paper from the double sided tape on the pouch and added more dotliner adhesive to the rest of the tag and folded them together to seal the shaker pouch and its contents. I pulled out some craft thread of the same colors and threaded them through the hole in the top of the tag.
I wanted to add visual interest behind the tag and pulled out Your Next Stamp Confetti Panel and dry embossed it on a panel of white cardstock. I was then adhered to a top folding cardbase with dotliner adhesive. The tag was adhered to the front with liquid glue and the card was done.
When I went to send this card to a friend the pouch is very think and it will not fit the requirements of standard postage, so I hand delivered it.
