Materials List

  • Keepsake Envelopes Mix
  • E-Z Runner® Micro Refillable Dispenser
  • E-Z Runner® Grand Dispenser
  • 3D Foam Stars
  • Adhesive Dots Mini
  • Adhesive Dots Micro
  • Stamps: Lawn Fawn (Lucky Star and Plan On It: Holidays Sets)
  • Patterned Paper: Photo Play Paper Co. (Fun with Friends Collection) and Bo Bunny Designs (You’re Invited Collection)
  • Ink: Tsukineko (Memento Ink – Black Tuxedo)

  1. To make the card base, die-cut a square on an A2 (4.25 x 5.5 in) size card front to create a window/opening. Stamp banner and sentiment. Color the banner with watercolor pencils. Set aside.

  2. To make the shaker feature, cut patterned paper to fit inside a large Keepsake Envelope. Scoop enough sequins to fill the spoon’s bottom and place in front of patterned paper, inside the envelope.

  3. Take out four sequins to use on the card front later. Take the liner off on the front of envelope and close the flap. Set aside.

  4. Apply the E-Z Runner® Micro Refillable Dispenser close to the inside edge of the window as possible (to secure in place).

  5. Curl the ends of the Keepsake Envelope liner together to make a “handle” for easy placement over the window. DO NOT REMOVE THE LINER YET – use it to press down the adhesive edges together to secure.

  6. Add white cardstock panel to cover shaker by applying E-Z Runner® Grand Dispenser (you can use your E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips too) on the edges of cardstock. Remove liner of Keepsake Envelope and place white cardstock over to cover the entire back cover of card.

  7. Now for the fun part, embellish card front! Pull out the points of largest 3D Foam Star FIRST gently with a tooth pick WITH LINER ON (helps keep its shape). Place on top of the shaker in any way (straight, angle, etc.).

  8. Remove the liner from the 3D Foam Star and place the foil shiny side up. Gently burnish into the star with your finger and lift the foil. For the finishing touch, add your sequins to accent the card front with a combination of Adhesive Dots Mini and new Adhesive Dots Micro.
