Random Ramblings: HAPPY 90TH BIRTHDAY CARD

Saturday, January 31, 2015


Today I am sharing this card I recently made for my Aunt's upcoming birthday party.  I have been dying to make a shaker card! They seem to be all the rage lately.  

I started with designing my cut in my SILHOUETTE STUDIO software so I knew exactly what size I wanted and needed everything to be.  I first cut out the black portion on ADHESIVE BACKED CARSTOCK in BLACK.  

The first thing I did was spray a little STUDIO CALICO MISTER HUEYS WHITE COLOR MIST 
I then cut two small pieces of transparency.  I put one on the back of the black cardstock.  
I cut a matching circle from my card base, so that you can see through the entire card.  Then I put the second piece of transparency on the top portion of the card base.  
I added foam adhesive around the entire circle, making a snug fit for all the filler pieces.  
I made it double thick so that there was room for the shaker filling to move around.  

I filled the shaker portion with sequins from FELICITY JANE and some SILHOUETTE AMERICA GLITTER in coordinating colors.  

Then I laid my black cardstock on top of the foam adhesive.
I took my SILHOUETTE AMERICA PRINTABLE FOIL in GOLD and SILVER and cut out stars, th, and happy birthday.  Since it is adhesive on the back, it makes it so easy to just add it to the card.  
I sprinkled on some of my sequins and glued those on with some liquid adhesive. 

I love how the glitter and sequins add a unique look to the shaker card.  

Have you joined the shaker card trend yet? I would love to see your shaker card too.
