Here' what you do:
Cut out “Happy Easter” from white card stock using a manual or electronic die cutting machine. Choose the right size photo pocket to use. Choose the smallest size pocket that still covers all of the empty space of your cut out. Trim pocket if necessary so that none of the pocket is hanging out from the edge of your white card stock.
Fill pocket with sequins or glitter and seal shut with Glue Lines to create shaker pocket.
Attach shaker pocket to the back of the white card stock with Ultra-thin dots.
Cut patterned paper to the same size as your white card stock. Cut colored card stock ¼” larger than your patterned paper.
Attach patterned paper to colored card stock with Ultra-thin dots.
Attach white card stock (with shaker pocket attached) to the patterned paper with Pop-up dots.
After you’ve conquered the Easter shaker card, try one for a baby shower, birthday, or even Christmas card.
You can try lots of different sizes and shapes of shaker cards by choosing a different sized photo pocket. So many fun possibilities!
