Hostess Monday with Larelyn



Hi Crafty Friends,
It's Larelyn from Handmade From My Heart.  
Today is my day to share a Hostess Monday project with you.
I have been on a shaker card kick because I've just learned an easy way to make shaker cards that are relatively flat so they're easy to mail.
The image for my card is Beach Babe Britt.
 

The shaker part is a made from a piece of cellophane bag.  I cut out the center of the sun with the circle part of the die cut after cutting and mounting the rays on the card.  The circle was cut all the way through the layers including the card base.  Then I taped the circle die onto the piece of cellophane bag and partially sealed it with the WRMK Fuse tool just following around the outside of the die.  Then I filled the pocket with sequins and finished sealing it with the Fuse.  The pocket is adhered between the mats and card base.  The inside mat shows through to provide a background color for the shaker pocket.  Here is a link to the tutorial where I learned this technique:

Along with "Britt", I've used Jaded Blossom's Spring Dies 2 for the sun and Tropical Dies for the seashell and sand.  The cloud paper is from Echo Park.  Britt is colored with Copic markers.

I hope you've enjoyed my card.  You can use almost any die shape to create the shaker pocket.  Give it try - it's so much fun.
