On a recent trip to Lyon, in France, I managed to get a hold of the Photo Sleeve Fuse Tool from We R Memory Keepers. I was so excited to find it, and it had been a long time since I had made a shaker card. The good thing with the fuse tool is that you can basically use it on any type of plastic sleeve. But the downside is that it will not leave a lot of space for the actual shaking. Personally I don’t mind too much, as it’s still a cool tool and the shaker windows still look great!
The MFT Sketch Challenge 317
My take on the sketch:
- I started by cutting the blue background from some blue cardstock, with the largest Wonky stitched rectangle stax die.
- Then I die cut the shaker windows with the smallest Wonky stitched rectangle. I have a lot of plastic sleeves from organizing documents, and tried out my new Photo Sleeve Fuse Tool from We R Memory Keepers. It was the first time I used it, and had a few practice rounds before I made the windows. What I liked about it, is that you can basically make any shape you want, and it’s very easy to use. For the background of the shaker windows, I just used some pink cardstock.
- The pink/white sequins are from a local craft store and I do think the smaller sequins shake better, when using the Fuse Tool.
- For the side, I used a strip of patterned paper from a Doodlebug design paper pad.
- The sentiment and sheep are once again from Ewe Are the Best stamp set. I try to use my stamp sets as much as I can, not wanting to leave anyone out lol. For the wool I applied some Marvy Liquid Applique and clear embossing powder on the sentiment.
