Shaker 50th Birthday (or anniversary)

Here's a fun birthday or anniversary shaker card. It uses the fuse tool and scrapbook pocket pages to make the insert. It's so clean and simple and a great way to make shaker cards!!  A little knotted ribbon above the flower and some ribbon strips below the flower finishes off the look. I popped up the petite polka dot layer to give a little dimension to the card and to give the shaker pocket room to shake. :)

Here's a close-up. Doesn't the petite hexagon cardstock in sky give just a subtle "texture" to the numbers? And, check out the shaker material - it's little bits of crepe paper and because there's no adhesive in the shaker, the little scraps just move around freely and happily inside their sealed pocket. :)
Here's the inside. It's the string from one of the birthday balloon stamps. It looks great vertically or horizontally!

All supplies, including the fabulous fuse tool and scrapbook pocket pages, are available in my webstore:

Have a wonderfully creative day!!
