It really rattles!

I saw this card last night and thought it was so cute I had to show Justin, when he saw it he said it would be cool if it really rattled. As soon as he said that I thought of a Shaker Card and had to have a go!

I have used vellum for the window as I had no overhead transperancy sheets and couldn't wait to have a go. To give the card 'rattle' I used small pink seed beads instead of sand or glitter. This was my first attempt at a Shaker card and I really recommend that if you haven't had a go at a shaker card to try something bigger before you try something this fiddly.
