The stamped image that jumped out at me was the bunch of flowers so I decided to focus on the other images. I took the sentiment 'Friend, you're a light in my life' and built a shaker card around it.

For the shaker section I used our CTMH Flip flaps. Once the jar was stamped onto the blank card I cut out the middle and used a small flip flap from the assorted pack. I placed a few sequins etc in the flip flap and sealed it. The card was stamped using some of the other images and versamark ink along with the white, silver and gold embossing looks better in real life. The flip flap is adhered to the back of the card front using the adhesive strip provided and glue dots. There is very little bulk and it is so simple. A piece of cardstock is then adhered to the left inside of the card.
Simple technique...
Simple stamping...
Quick and effective
