Happy Birthday Shaker for Fern
I have a friend at church that has a little girl turning three the end of the month. Her favorite colors are pink and orange. Little kids like cute animals and the sound shaker cards make. So, I made her a birthday card with both.
I pulled out this cut stamp from Wild Rose Studio and stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. The balloons were colored with various shade of pink and orange. When the coloring was complete I fussy cut the image out.
I've really been liking this new oval die from Spellbinders. I first cut down a quarter sheet of cardstock with a stitched rectangle and then cut the oval from the center. I used the next largest die to cut some acetate and adhered it behind the cutout with dotliner adhesive. 3M 1/2" Foam Tape was doubled up and adhered around the oval on the backside and then shaker bits were added to the center of the well. I wanted to have some additional visual interest behind the shake and dry embossed another panel of white cardstock with the Cuttlebug Happy Birthday folder. The backing was removed from the foam tape and the embossed rectangle was adhered in place.
I cut the number 3 from gold mirror cardstock and adhered it to the center balloon. The sentiment was cut from the same mirror cardstock and adhered in the lower right of the card front. The secondary sentiment was stamped on a scrap of cardstock that had been colored with a couple of the Copic Markers used on the balloons. The sentiment was stamped with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed gold.
I decided to add a thin border of pink to the back of the shaker panel. It was then adhered to a top folding A2 cardbase.
