Today I have a trio of shaker cards to share, created with lots of Simon Says Stamp goodies, and a selection of my Shaker Selections. Shaker cards make great birthday cards - they are fun, noisy and definitely celebratory!
To make each card, I first die cut two large Balloons from white card, one from acetate and one from Lawn Fawn's Let's Polka Mon Amie patterned paper. I adhered the patterned paper balloon to one of the white balloons, then stitched the acetate balloon on top, leaving an opening. I filled with sequins - for these ones I used Ruby Grapefruit, Purely Peppermint, and my newest colour Princess (on its way to Simon Says Stamp as I type) - then stitched up the top. I die cut the Painted Happy Birthday from black card, then added various stamped sentiments to complete the message. I finished with some black and white twine.
To make the card stand up, I die cut a second balloon, scored it along the left hand side, then trimmed the bottom slightly to give it a straight edge. I added adhesive to the scored edge and stuck it to the back of the shaker balloon.
And finally, the Purely Peppermint version.
Which colour is your favourite? :)
Thanks so much for visiting - I hope you have a wonderful weekend.Supplies
