It's a Seize the Birthday Thursday! Our newest topping is TRANSPARENCY or VELLUM. Vellum would be my definite first choice, so I decided to challenge myself with going transparent and making a shaker card!!!
If you've never been here before... I do not like making shaker cards. Love seeing other people's, it's just not my thing. So here is my annual shaker card for 2021! (I think I managed to making skip one in 2020... after all, it's the pandemic, don't you know...) This sentiment die cut is perfect for a shaker, isn't it? I die cut it out of purple textured cardstock - I made my shaker mix selection first, then found the paper that would work. ;) To make the shaker element, I cut a slightly larger circle out of some white fun foam and trimmed the panel to just under card size. Behind the shaker, I aded some subtle star patterned paper, since my shaker mix includes stars, too. Since the fun foam adds thickness to the card, I didn't want to add too much extra to the front, so there is just an embossed secondary sentiment. Look how well the two cardstocks match, though! :D
Lots of fun inspiration from my Seize the Birthday teammates as well as our current surprise party guest, Julie! Even if, like me, you don't like making making shaker cards, you will find a variety of inspiration for your own creation! And of course, we are always happy to see any newly-created birthday card in our link-up, so come join us!
