Fore You Shaker Card

Happy Friday! 
I hope your week has gone well! I've been making some shaker cards lately..they are so fun & I love to see which part of the image I can use for the shaker part. On this card, you can see I chose the inside of the cart.  To make it, I die cut the white panel, put into my Misti, stamped the Golf Cart w/ Memento, colored w/ Copics, then over stamped w/ Versafine. I also did an extra of just the area behind the shaker. Then I used a craft knife to cut out that area on the top version. The shaker pouch is just part of a clear envelope..the kind embellishments or stickers come in. I put some sequins in it then closed it up around any open edges. I like using these clear envelopes because they don't add a lot of bulk & are still mailable. I did add some foam tape around edges of the top panel to give the shaker just a bit of room.
Here's a little extra for you..see the brown sequins? They were actually gold..I colored them w/ a dk brown Copic (a brown Sharpie also works). Yep. It works! I added a little pennant for the greeting since it wouldn't fit anywhere else. The green bg was stamped w/ the green ink & the Everything Golf Bg image.

Here are the Copics I used.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
