Hello! Thanks so much for stopping by
Happy Birthday cards can be used anytime and all year long! It never hurts to have a few on hand. I am showcasing the digital image Happy Birthday Hippo found here from Craftin Desert Divas.
I also used the stamp set Bring on the Cake found here.
Shaker elements can be found in the sweetness collection
I first took Bring on the Cake stamp set and placed Cake Cake Cake and Bring on the Cake to a block and stamped a 6x6 paper. I wanted a center point for Happy Birthday so I placed that in the middle with a pink color.
I printed the digital hippo, colored and then cut with my Brother Scan N Cut. I'm impressed with this machine more and more. It does amazing cuts.
I decided to make my card to a shaker (shaker everything!! LOL). I went a different route and made it a tiny shaker window highlighting the Happy Birthday sentiment. To make a shaker you need either fun foam or 3m foam tape. I use transparency film to make my window. I hope to start to video my card making soon. While I'm not a professional shaker maker.. I hope that I can help some who would like to learn.
I can tell the weather makes dry and static filled conditions.. Some of the shaker elements are sticking on the inside of my shaker window..
Once I had all of my elements complete.. I began to layer and assemble the shaker window. Adding the Hippo and streamers to the top.
I hope this has inspired you to be crafty!
