For my son and his wife, I made a Deco Mesh Seahawks wreath, and gave it to both of them for their birthdays. Since Mark's wife's birthday came first, and just before the first pre-season football game, the wreath was bestowed on Ginger's August birthday so they could enjoy it from the very beginning of the Seahawk's season! Now, it is time to celebrate my son's birthday, so I thought I should make him a little Seahawk's themed card to remind him of his early birthday present.
I decided on a shaker card with a die-cut of the Seattle skyline beneath all the confetti. My ulterior motive was that I wanted to use my new birthday tool that I received from one of my dear cardmaking buddies: the We R Memory Keepers Photo Sleeve Fuse. Such a clever tool it is, and after using it, I am overjoyed with the results. WRMK sells album sheets or Waterfall Sleeves and either can be used with Photo Fuse. You can make any shaker baggie to hold your shaker confetti by sealing the edges to the size you desire, filling it with your confetti or shaker materials, and sealing it closed. It has a tool for heating to trim excess edges, but I found for a shaker, a pair of scissors works just as well.
First, here is the wreath I gave Ginger and Mark for their birthdays...GO HAWKS!
Below is the Seahawk's shaker card front that I designed, which is followed by the coordinating inside design and my computer verse.
