No Bones Birthday

By | December 5, 2015

Happy Birthday Jackson! Today is my cousin Lisa’s, son’s birthday – he is 2. Thought I would share his shaker birthday card with you. Lisa has two boys and one of the reasons I purchased the “No Bones About It” stamp set was knowing it would be great to use for their birthdays!

The card starts with a base of Very Vanilla and is a 5″ square card. Used Pacific Point as the mat and outside is Old Olive, Gorgeous Grunge stamp set was used to stamp color on color to decorate the Old Olive. Next I die cut a circle out of the Old Olive using a circle from the Circles Collection framelits. To make sure I used a big enough circle, I stamped what I wanted to use first then picked the circle that best fit. A piece of window sheet was attached to the Old Olive (on the backside) with liquid glue to hold in the “shaker material” = sequins/glitter from my stash. The layer used to create the shaker is a piece of fun foam with a circle die cut and the image glued behind the opening. To finish the front, sentiment is stamped, with banner ends and backed with dimensionals.  After the photo is a layering list for how I put together a shaker card, hope it helps!
