Hello there shaker card

My WRMK Fuse tool arrived yesterday and I couldn't wait to play.  I used a digi stamp from FredSheSaid and a frame punch from Hobby Lobby for this quick card.  Earlier I made some gift card holders with the photo sleeves that came with the tool but for this card I experimented with a crystal clear sheet protector.  It worked just fine for the shaker card but I like the thickness of the photo sleeve for the gift card holder.

My first shaker card

This is my first attempt at a shaker card but I can see many more of these in my future.  I love any kind of interactive card and this one is fun!
After watching multiple YouTube videos and looking at many pictures, I jumped in.  The shaker element is separate and then adhered to the card front.  The clear front of the shaker is just the packaging that a die had come in.  I bought a bag of mixed sequins at JoAnn last night and have since ordered a bunch of sequins on eBay.
Also, after watching YouTube, I ordered the We R Memory Keepers Fuse tool from HSN, which is now on clearance.  That's why I know I'll be making more of these!
