Shaker Cards using the Fuse Tool

Today we're sharing a fun shaker card we created using the Fuse Tool.  We love this handy little tool!  It's great for pocket scrapbooking AND card making!

Here's how we created the shaker pocket:  We used MFT Stamps Blueprints Die Set #20 to cut the stitched piece from watercolor paper.  After cutting, we watercolored the piece using Iced Spruce Distress Ink and stamped it using Delicata Silvery Shimmer ink (our favorite silver ink). The stamp set is Mama Elephant's Peace on Earth set. We slid the piece into a scrapbooking page protector and fused three sides around the our stitched paper using the Fuse Tool.  Before fusing the top, we filled the pocket with Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear and Silver Metallic sequins.  We used Score-tape to secure the shaker pocket to the top of the scallop piece that was also cut from using MFT Stamps Blueprints #20.

Here's a close up look at the edge of the pocket we created with the Fuse Tool.

Here's a LINK to a quick video demonstrating the Fuse Tool.  Here's another quick VIDEO from Jennifer McGuire.  She used the fuse tool to create a card that enclosed a gift card!
