Shaker cards are ridiculously addictive - both to create and to play with. That “shooka, shooka” sound your recipient will hear before they even break the envelope’s seal is a sure sign that something AMAZING will be found within! Join the team this month as we share inventive birthday-themed shaker cards

For my Birthday Project, I made a card using the adorable BB Birthday Chicks stamp set along with the Horizontal Collage Cover - Up Die-namics.

To begin, I stamped the images from BB Birthday Chicks stamp set and colored them with Copics. After, I cut them out with the coordinating dies. 

For the background panel, I trimmed Bristol paper to little smaller than A2 size and blended it with Distress Oxides. To add texture I spritzed it with water. Once dried, I stamped the sentiment with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink.

I made the widow panel by die-cutting white cardstock with Horizontal Collage Cover - Up Die-namics. I added trimmed acetate behind the panel.

To assemble the card, I added star sequins for the shaker element and foam mounted the window panel on top of the background panel (trapping the stars within each box).

To finish, I adhered the colored images on top of the window panel and adhered the card to a top folding A2 size card base.
