{Neat & Tangled} May Your Holidays Be Filled With Sequins

I love making shaker cards and I recently acquired the Fuse Tool so I wanted to use it to make a flat, mailable card with a sequin packet.  This was the perfect opportunity to test it out. I combined images and sentiments from the Happy Holidays and Crafting is My Jam sets.

I cut a window through the black panel, as well as the kraft card base. I wanted the recipient to be able to see right through the front of the card. After creating an appropriate sized packet with the Fuse Tool, I filled it with sequins, sealed it and secured it in between the two panels.

I die cut 'holidays', layering gold over black and adhered the complementary strips around it. To finish, I die cut and coloured a bunch of craft tools from Crafting is My Jam and popped them on to the panel with foam tape.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

This is a very fun card! I like that the card doesn't have to be as bulky as the traditional shaker method.

THanks, Emily! I'm asking Santa for a Fuse tool - I like that it is small and portable. Maybe after the holidays would you consider doing a video to walk us through these steps? I'm having difficulty imagining how this all came together. Thanks for all you do to keep us so inspired!
