Happy Birthday Shaker Card...Let's shake it up!!!

Did you hear that BIG squeal I let out?!  That was me!  I could not wait to share this Happy Birthday Shaker Card with you!  I don't know what it is about shaker cards, but they make me happy.  It's probably because they remind me of snow globes, and I LOVE snow globes!  

The inspiration for this card came from a card I saw on Pinterest.  But what fueled my desire to make a shaker card was my crafty friend Nicole Tugrul of Be Creative with Nicole.  

A couple of weeks ago, Nicole made one cute shaker card after another, and I wanted a piece of the action.  So I grabbed some of my go-to colors--Coastal Cabana and Strawberry Slush--some designer series paper, stamps, dies and a punch, and went to work.

The focal point of this card is that adorable banner shaker.  First, I double die cut the top banner piece from a black and white striped piece of Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack.  

Second, I used some contraband, I mean some non-Stampin' Up! clear foam adhesive to make my shaker.  LOL!  I used KOOL TAK Clear Foam Roll Tape.  It's like working with a sticky gummy worm, but it's just what the doctor ordered. 

Inside my shaker, I filled it to the brim with some hearts punched from Coastal Cabana and Strawberry Slush cardstock using the Hearts Border Punch and also added some 2013-2015 In Color Sequin.  Because the sequins and punched shapes stick to the sides of the foam adhesive, you have to really fill it.

I added my sentiment by using a die cut "happy" from the Hello You Thinlits Dies and stamped "birthday" from the Crazy About You Stamp Set.  The die cut sentiment was adhered with just a few dots of true clear wet glue (more contraband)...Tombow Mono Aqua Liquid Glue.

I finished my card off with an adorable bow using the Bow Builder Punch.  Love that punch!

This was such a fun card to make!  I hope that I have encouraged you to give shaker cards a try.  You will find all of the Stampin' Up! products I used to create this card below.  My Online Store is open 24/7!  Click any of the links below to go right to that item.
