Hi everyone! Jennifer Timko here with our post today. And I’m, well, really happy to share with you. I created a fun birthday card that is perfect for anyone of any age or gender. You can change the colors to tailor it to the recipient but other than that, no modifications needed.
Can I confess that I love a shaker card?! I don’t make enough of them, to be sure, but I always am so excited when I do. And you know what, my boys (large and small) love them too. The shaking is non-stop once I show them the card. I used the Rough Around the Edges set to create a background in a pretty mint color but think of all the possibilities with bold or neutral colors. Using my MISTI tool, I inked up the background stamp a few times to get good coverage. Once the panel was stamped, I cut it down to A2 card front size and cut out a rectangle large enough for my sentiment.
On vellum card stock, I stamped the sentiment from Happy Happy Happy Birthday in black ink and heat embossed with black embossing glitter (it has a subtle sparkle in the light). I attached the panel cover piece from behind and then set up my wall of foam tape to hold all the sequins and gems. I used a mint card stock behind the sequins to help the stripes pop more. Once that back panel was on, I secured the whole thing to a white card stock base.
Cards like this are super fun to make and to receive. I love how there are so many Picket Fence Studios sentiments that would be great in this format. I see more shakers in my future…. Thanks for stopping in today. Hope you enjoy this one. Have a great day!
