Sectioned Shaker Card

 My grandpa's birthday is coming up next week, so I needed to create a special card for him. I decided it would be fun to create a shaker card, but not just any shaker card, a sectioned shaker card. I'll show you how to make one today quickly and easily with the We R Memory Keepers Photo Fuse.

I started by cutting "happy" 3 times with a die from the We R Memory Keepers Lifestyle Happy Stamp and Die Set. I used the magnetic mat wit the Evolution for this, as getting the die to stay in place is a lot easier with the magnetic mat.

After cutting, I stamped the matching happy stamp on a piece of paper, through the die cut. The stamped paper can't be attached to the die cut paper just yet, so to make stamping easier, I temporarily adhered the two pieces together with washi tape. 

 Now it's time to create the pockets using the Fuse. I started by cutting a waterfall pocket down to the same size as my stamped on piece of paper. Then I used a little washi tape (again!) to temporarily hold the waterfall pocket in place over the the stamped area. Then, I added a little paper confetti to the pocket, and used the stamped area as a guide to see where I should seal the pocket. I repeated this step until each happy had it's own shaker pocket.

 Once your pockets are all sealed, you just have to assemble everything. I added my sectioned shaker pocket to some We R Memory Keepers Cakes and Candles Paper.

 I love how easy it is to make a shaker card with the Fuse, and creating a sectioned shaker card is just another way to keep shaker cards feeling fresh and new. Have you used the Fuse to create a shaker card?
