Yay for shaker cards!!! 

Haha... I love shaker pockets and cards, do you? For this project I decided to create three shaker cards, using a Doodlebug cutfile

To start, I went through the new Cute&Crafty cutfiles and found this cute Jars&Sprinkles cutfile. Since the jars are filled with glitter and sequins in reality, I thought it would be a cool idea to use those for my shaker cards and fill them too.

To start, I cut all the pieces out, using different Doodlebug colored cardstock sheets. I cut out the container part twice; once like it was originally, the second one, I changed a bit, letting the machine cut out the inner part, so that I would have a window to back with acetate. 

I adhered all of the pieces together after adding some ink around the edges, then I added some highlights with a white jelly pen. 

I backed the "open" jar with a piece of acetate and then I but dimensional foam tape around all the edges. 
To fill the little jar, I used three different "Sugar Coating" glitters and sequins. Then I added the "filled" jar on top, to close the shaker pocket. 

For my card bases, I used three patterned papers from the collection, that had a white background. I cut them 8x8inches and folded them in the middle, to create an 8x4 card. I put some ink around the borders to create a frame and then adhered the little jars on top. 

As a sentiment, I used three banners included in the "Chit Chat" die cuts. To finish the cards, I added two buttons to the top of each jar.

I think the cards turned out super cute and they can be used for every occasion.
