just a peek of a shaker
For my two projects, I wanted to share some different ways to create shaker cards. This first one utilizes the negative diecut space to create the shaker. Then, I left off the bottom layer of the diecut rose so there would be little peek-a-boo areas where you can see the sequins inside!

no-foam shaker with tulle
I think this is one of my most favorite shaker cards ever! Not only did I use tulle for the cover instead of acetate, but I also didn’t use any foam strips! The flexibility of the tulle sandwiched in between two of the diecuts allows the sequins to move freely! It enables a lower profile which, in turn, makes the design more mail friendly!
