Birthday Wishes - Gift shaker card.

Hello everyone
How are you all? i hope you all are doing fabulous. Today I am posting a shaker card which is filled with sequins and handmade shaker elements. It carries a colorful birthday sentiment with it, which is stamped using 3 colors applied on the same stamp.I am sending this card to the this month challenge at A Blog Named Hero,Creativity with stampsPeek-a-boo designs and Craft Stamper.
  • Peek-a-boo Designs - Anything Goes ( I have used an old stamp sets and vellum and sequins are new stash.
  • A Blog Named Hero - Vellum is used as card base.
  • Creativity with stamps - Manly Card (This card is made using masculine colors like blues and purples)
  • Craft Stamper - Lets Get Inky ( I have used sketchpens and Dye inks
I have used a clear vellum for the base of this card which is in standard A2 size of  4 . 25"x 5 .5 card base. I then went ahead and cut another card base of same size from white heavyweight cardstock. I then cut the white cardbase into 2 parts. Resized one part of the cardstock by 1/8" on all sides and adhered it inside the vellum cardbase,
Now for the card front, I made shaker gift elements using some paper tapes, scraps of cardstock and stamps from GIFTS - HOTP Small Stamp Set. I glued purple, blue and lime green polka dotted paper tapes on scrap cardstock pieces. Then I stamped them using 2 gift stamps using Memento tuxedo Black ink and then fussy cut them. I made 6 gifts of 2 different sizes in 3 colors. Then, I also stamped and fussy cut some bow stamps from the same set.

I cut the white cardstock frame which is 1/4" thick on all sides to make the shaker window. I glued it to acetate sheet which is 41/8"x 5 3/8" in size. Then I added foam adhesive on the edges of the frame carefully not to show any from the sides. I brushed the window with nti static powder before adding shaker elements to avoid them sticking inside.


















For the back, I used the other part of the white cardstock I cut earlier and stamped it with Birthday Wishes sentiment from Birthday wishes stamp set from Inkadinkado using Electric Lime dye ink from Ranger, Bahama Blue and Grape Jelly dye ink from Memento. I then filled up the window with green, blue and purple sequins, gifts and bows I made and then attached it to the vellum cardfront. I drew a few swirls using waterproof sketchpens to add some color to the frame of shaker window.

I added 3 gifts to the inside of the card to complete it. That's it and our cute shaker card is ready. I hope you all liked it. Thank you for visiting me.
