Happy Birthday Shaker Card

Hi Friends!
I have something other than a layout to share today! Haha!
Over the weekend, I had the luxury of sitting down in my craft room and actually creating. Shocker, I know ;P
I've been meaning to create a shaker card for the longest time but just couldn't find the time with a teething 10 month old who refuses to nap. But, this weekend, the craft gods smiled upon me and VOILA, a card was born! Haha! OK, so truth is hubs was home and watched monkey... same thing! ;)

I had this imaged already coloured up from Some Odd Girl. This pretty is Alice Mae and I just adore her. She's adhered down with lots of foam dimensionals.
I started off with a card base which I created from a 12x12 sheet of Bazzill cardstock in an aqua colour, cut down to size. This card here measures 5 1/4 inches squared.
The paper collection I used for this card is the Authentique Renew Collection. Love all the aqua and yellow, black and white!

Next, using Lifestyle Crafts Circle Dies, I cut the circles and created the "shaker" part of the card. I added a cute cluster of balloon die cuts propped on foam adhesive and all the sequins.You can see by the second photo below how dimensional the card really is. Next, to embellish, I used some Pebbles Inc die cuts. I don't know the name of this collection but it's chalk full of celebration and party pieces. Love this!

Thanks for stopping by today! I appreciate you all!


  1. It really is gorgeous...would love to know how you make the shaker element if you are willing to share :)

    1. It's super easy. It's just layered circles, popped up with foam tape. I then cut a piece of acetate and used it as the window. Maybe I'll make a tutorial if I can find a quick minute. Thanks for stopping by!
