Hi everyone! I'm up on Lori Whitlock's blog today sharing a quick tutorial for this "shaker"card. Thanks to my friend Kelly for this idea. If you have an idea for a tutorial, please leave it in the comment section. I am always open to suggestions!
I used the round rectangle tool to draw a 4" x 3"w rectangle.
Next, I opened Lori's new 6 Hearts file and reduced them to fit inside the rectangle. I ungrouped the hearts and resized them and placed them where I wanted them.
Then do select all (control A) and right click the mouse and pull down to make compound path.
Now you're ready to cut. Cut the card with the hearts from pattern paper. One plain card from acetate and one from vellum. Layer the pattern paper on top, then the acetate and the vellum on the back. Sew around the edge of the layers leaving a small space to fill with sequins. After they are all inside, you can stitch the space closed.
I cut this new round background at 4-1/2"w and placed it behind my shaker and then added some embellishments.
You could make this for any occasion and have fun with what you put in the shaker. You could use confetti, sprinkles, little beads.
