Flat Shaker Card

Today's shaker card is a style that I tend to forget about, a flat shaker. For this type of shaker you aren't creating a traditional box, rather you are creating a pocket envelope.


I created the pocket by stitching together two hearts that were die-cut from vellum with the Stitchable Heart STAX Die-namics


If you look closely, you may see a few gold micro beads. Apparently the stitching is not quite as tight as I thought it was and many little gold micro beads made their escape. Oh well, at least all those yummy sequins stayed put. I used three different sizes of gold sequins. The smallest are from Pretty Pink Posh, the other two are from Teresa Collins.


On the inside of the card, I stamped a sentiment from the Totally Happy stamp set. I finished off the inside with a simple heart border.
