Hi. Today I have a fun birthday shaker card to share with you. To make my card, I first stitched a sheet of acetate to some MFT chevron patterned paper, leaving an opening at the top. I filled the pocket with Lucy’s Cards Lagoon Sparkly Shaker Selection, then stitched up the gap and adhered the shaker pocket to a folded card. Next, I die cut a Large Tag from some Hero Arts Letterpress paper, then splattered with some Peacock Feathers Distress Ink mixed with water.

I stamped the dog and balloon from Hero Arts Party Time by Lia set on more chevron papers, and fussy cut them out. I stamped the balloon again on the tag, then paper pieced the chevron balloon on top and added the dog. Finally, I stamped the sentiment from Simon Says Stamp’s Birthday Flowers set on white card, cut it out and added to the tag. After threading the tag with some Lawn Fawn cord, I adhered it to the card with foam tape. Thanks so much for visiting – I hope you enjoy your day.
