Happy Day Birthday Shaker Card

Hello!  I’m stoping by to quickly share a card I made the other day.  I’ve used this Happy Day stamp set by Concord & 9th quite a few times in the past few months but each time – it turns out different, in all good ways!  In the past, I have embossed the image and watercolored, but I used Copic markers to color the image this time.

My friend, Missy loves GLITTER.  Every time she asks me to make a card, she wants me to use glitter – so you’ll probably recognize the glitter paper.  I’m also a huge fan of these stitched rectangle scallop frames from My Favorite Things.

The banner and sentiment is from the same stamp set – I love that you can customize the years.  I propped the frame up using foam adhesive and turned card into a shaker.  The pink in the background is subtle but it brings out the color of the cake as well.

I filled the shaker portion with lots of iridescent glitter, gold sequins, and some iridescent microbeads.  I haven’t made a shaker in a while so this was fun for me!  I’m working on a fairy card in a box for my next post.  I did all the coloring for it and plan on having a supply list and details.  I’ve shared a few of those cards in the past with very little instructions but I hope to share more next time.  Stay tuned!

XOXO,
