Today I created shaker cards using a Fuse Tool with some awesome (and easy) watercolor backgrounds.
To create the background I added the paint directly to my glass craft mat and then smooshed some Canson watercolor paper into it. I was able to make a ton of background really quickly with this technique and I think they all look really cool.
Next I used my fuse tool to create a pocket around my backgrounds. For the plastic I used some old scrapbooking sleeves I had in my stash. I fused three sides and left one open to add my shaker bits. Once the sequins were inside the pockets I fused up the last side to finish the shaker pocket.
I took the Happy Birthday stamp from the Beautiful Flowers stamp set from Simon Says Stamp and I heat embossing it with Alabaster embossing powder onto a strip of vellum. I then wrapped the vellum around the shaker pocket and adhered it to the back. I added a second smaller sentiment from Simon’s Tiny Words stamp set below the vellum one.
I adhered both of my shaker pockets to A2 size card bases. To finish them up I added some white sequins which I then filled with Glossy Accents.
