It’s been a LONG time since I’ve entered a card challenge and I immediately had a card come to mind for my 7 year old niece’s birthday when I saw sketch #224 from Freshly Made Sketches!
I started with a traditional white cardstock base and cut a frame from the Artbooking Cricut® Cartridge on Confetti Wishes B&T Paper. I then cut the “happy” from a Heidi Swapp die on Thistle Carstock. I added the “birthday” sentiment from the Happy To Be Friends Stamp Set in Thistle Exclusive™ Ink. My sweet friend Stephanie had given me a tip on using flip flaps as an quick & easy tool for shaker cards so I grabbed a 4×6 Flip Flap and cut it to fit under the frame. Once I had the appropriate size I added sequins and stitched it together. I popped the frame up on 3D Foam Tape and added the shaker to the cardstock base. To add a little bling, I placed a strip of Gold Shimmer Trim along the side of the shaker panel. I used my Corner Chomper to add a little detail to the ends of the shimmer trim.
I’m also linking this card to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge for their Shake It Up Challenge!
