Dove Shaker Card

     A wedding card made with one of the new Pop Box inserts from John Next Door, using these inserts you can make the cards to match the boxes giving you value for money, which we all love.
     When making a shaker card I prefer to make a shallow box to contain the confetti, that way I don't see any foam tape and nothing can escape.
      I cut the dove die in the middle of a large square piece of card and made a box approximately 3mm deep to surround it. An acetate front was stuck behind the doves, then small red heart confetti was added. For the back I stuck some gold mesh on a piece of white card , added it and then sealed the box around it. I then put this piece aside to make the main card for the box to go on.
     I wanted to use the same gold mesh as a background so I cut a square, gold mirri frame and mounted the mesh behind it. This was then mounted on a square, white card blank.
     Then the shaker box was stuck to the middle of the card, having the same gold mesh inside the box makes it look like the shaker is a frame hanging over the background but I know the confetti is secure inside it's own little box. As a finishing touch I added a gold mirri heart to the dove cut out.
     If you are making your own wedding stationery, favours and table decorations this set of inserts would enable you to co-ordinate everything, it's also pretty good for Anniversary parties.
