Joy – A Completely Flat Shaker!

Hi all!  I recently decided to purchase the We R Memory Keeper’s Fuse Tool.  My rationale was that I could save money in the long run by not purchasing so much foam tape.  I’ve used it a handful of times so far and really like it.  My card today is a completely flat shaker card, which makes me really happy!

I kept this really simple, but boy does it pack a punch!  First, I cut Nightshift Blue with Blueprints 13 {I swear, my cards are naked if I don’t do this first!}  Then I cut it with the Christmas Tree Cutout die — I did have to tape it down with a bit of washi to prevent it from moving.  Next up was to stamp my star at the top — I used Delicata Golden Glitz, but didn’t emboss it.  Then I created my shaker pocket. I’ve been using page protectors, which are working great.  I filled it with some fun sequins, including some that are shaped like old fashioned Christmas lights. 

I glued my completed pocket to the back of my Nightshift Blue.  I kept the tree trunk closed off so that the pocket would fit perfectly along the bottom.  I then glued down my panel directly to my card base.  No foam tape – only my double sided tape.  Then I added a bit of joy in gold.  I love that this is a perfectly mailable shaker card without requiring a padded envelope or anything else!
