Shaker Birthday Card

Good morning everyone.

Thanks for coming to my blog today, love having you here.

Today I am sharing the birthday card I made for my grand-daughter who turned 11 last week.

I have created a video, you can see it here



To create the card base I cut a piece of Best Creations Basic Glitter paper in pink to 8" x 6" and scored it at 4" on the longest edge, to make a 6" x 4" card

I used Die-Namics High Rise Numbers die to cut the 11 from a piece of white cardstock that measured 2" x 2.5".

I covered the back of the white cardstock with a piece of acetate and then used foam tape to completely surround each number.

The Aussie Stamps & Crafts Superfine glitter in Pastel Apricot (I have had this for about 15 years) was then added to the numbers.
A piece of white cardstock was then attached to the back of the panel to contain the glitter. Now my shaker panel is ready to be attached to the card.

I wanted to have some twine behind the shaker panel so I cut a piece of the Glitter paper 4" x 1" and wrapped the twine around that, securing it at the back with some double sided tape.

I used foam tape to attach the shaker panel to the piece with the twine and then attached that to the card  about 2/3rds of the way down the card.

I used a die to cut the Happy Birthday greeting from white cardstock. This was then attached to a piece of the glitter card that was cut to 4" x 1.5" and matted on a piece of white cardstock that was 4" x 2". This panel was then attached to the card about a 1/2" from the bottom.

It is a very simple card and easy to put together, why not give it a try

Remember you can see the video on my YouTube channel here

I have lots of other card making videos on my channel and I would love it if you would check them out and maybe subscribe to my channel if you like my videos.

Till next time
Hugs
