Ellie Shaker Card with Avery Elle

Helloooo!  It's been a crazy week here on the East Coast and I'm so glad that it's Friday:)  And I'm so happy to be sharing this card that I made with the new Avery Elle Ellie stamp!  So cute, right?  


When I saw the Ellie stamp I thought how fun it would be to make him spraying "confetti" from his trunk.  I used the arc die from the Custom Panels die set to create the aperture for the shaker, but I still had a problem with the edge of the card.  Most shakers have a frame so you can hide the foam layer that contains the sequins/glitter.  Instead of a frame, I used this new technique with my We R Memory Keepers Fuse tool.  Check out this video for the details...


Thank you so much for stopping by!  I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Mahalo and Aloha,
jj
