Easiest shaker card made with an envelope with a Video

Today I am sharing my new favorite shaker card. By using a clear envelope instead of a recessed shaker area made with window sheet, the construction time is cut down to a minimum. Typical shaker cards have a great capacity for filler options versus using an envelope but by being selective with the filler, this version can really make it special.

Design Details

Paper size will be determined by the size of the envelope. There needs to be enough room to fold over the envelope to secure on the back. I used Tear and Tape to secure the fold over of the envelope and to adhere the unit to the bard base. Choosing flat sequins make it a cinch to allow the filler to move freely inside the shaker area.

Party Animal DSP and Balloon Adventures stamp set made this project so easy to create. By using a celebration styles sentiment, this card has more possibilities other than being kept only to a birthday card. Any celebration for any person will be covered by this project.

Shakers are so much fun to make and send to someone special. Having an easy idea to get one made is a resource to keep in your back pocket!  Thanks for stopping by today.
