To keep this party going, I'll be sharing projects all weekend, and there will be one or more Mini Giveaways on each of my posts, so make sure you come back all 4 days! Scroll to the end of each day's post to find the giveaway details!
Since it's my birthday today, I decided to create a birthday shaker card with my brand new Birthday Bash Sparkle Blends, Papertrey Ink Scene It: Celebration die set, Kaisercraft Texture: Birthday stamp set, Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid: Rainbow 6x6 paper pack & Dovecraft Berry Blush Glitter Enamel Dots.
For this card, I selected the Balloon die from the Papertrey Ink Scene It: Celebration collection and cut 4 of them from 110# white cardstock, adhering them in a stack to create a dimensional shaker box. Next, I found a stitched circle frame die in my stash that happened to be exactly the same size as the Scene It die and cut an opening in a 4x5.25 panel of Perfectly Plaid: Rainbow paper & adhered it to the front of a top folding A2 card base. I also cut a frame from 110# white cardstock.
I adhered the shaker box inside the die cut opening with Glossy Accents, to make sure it didn't budge, then I carefully added some of the Birthday Bash Sparkle Blends to each opening in the die cut shaker box. Next, I cut a circle of clear acetate with a die from my stash and adhered it over the shaker, followed by the frame I cut before. I decided I didn't like the look of a white frame, so I colored it black with my Spectrum Noir Markers--which then made the balloons look too stark, so I colored them with Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens.
I stamped my Kaisercraft birthday sentiment with Versamark ink on a piece of black cardstock, to tie in with the shaker frame, and heat embossed it in white. I fish tailed both ends of the banner and adhered it to the card using 1mm Woodware foam tape. As a final touch, I scattered some of the glitter enamel dots as embellishments.
Today I'm giving away a full sized package of Doodles Paper Playground: Sparkle Blends Birthday Bash
