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!
