Thank You - a Confetti Card

A number of individuals have asked me about making shaker cards - you know, the old style where you used mounting tape and the card became big and bulky making it expensive to mail.  I wanted to show them that there is a new updated style of shaker cards - called faux shaker or confetti cards.

Darn!  A camera can be a pain sometimes.  Just as I went to take a picture of the card, the battery went dead and it took 3 hours to recharge!!!

A 4 by 5 piece of Irresistibly Yours DSP (SAB) was sponged with Wild Wasabi ink.  An identical size piece of Vellum cardstock was cut, but before taping it to the DSP, it was embossed with white embossing powder, using the stamp set "I Love You"- in both lower corners.
Then it was placed on top of the DSP, and taped on 3 sides with Wisabi tape.  The top was left open.

The confetti was made by punching pieces of Wild Wasabi, Whisper White, Dazzling Diamond cardstock using 3 sizes of punches and gold sequins.  These confetti pieces were added to the vellum pouch through the top and the top sealed with another piece of Washi tape.  In the side view of the picture you can see the confetti through the vellum.  You can also see the embossed image.

A piece of Wild Wasabi ribbon and Baker's twine was added to the top of the pouch.

The pouch was then layered onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock, which was attached to a base of Wild Wasabi.

After embossing the sentiment with White embossing powder on Wild Wasabi cardstock it was die cut with the Apothecary Accent die and attached to the front of the pouch with dimensionals.  Gold sequins were randomly added to the front as well.
