Birthday Balloon Shaker Card

Hi, Friends! It's time for a new challenge at Stamp Ink Paper, and it's one you can all play along with: Happy Birthday! I mail out so many birthday cards each year, second only to Christmas cards, so I welcome an opportunity to build up my stash. 

I'd actually prepared another birthday card to post today, but I thought it was a bit on the boring side so I decided to jazz it up a bit and make a shaker card instead. I LOVE shaker cards and don't know why I don't make them more often. Goodness knows I have enough sequins and beads for 100 of them, lol! I loaded this one up with lots of sequins from Pretty Pink Posh along with some clear seed beads. I find that the seed beads help the sequins to move around a bit. 

This is the perfect opportunity to play along with my friends at Seize the Birthday. The topping this week is clean and simple. I don't know if my card is exactly clean with my mountain of sequins, but it definitely was simple as there weren't even any stamps or ink involved.

Products Used:
Stamp Sets & Ink Pads: None
Card Stock: Solar White (Neenah), Basic Black (SU)
Patterned Paper: Cherry on Top (SU)
Tools: Big Shot, Balloons Dies, Happy Birthday Dies (Simon Says Stamp)
Accessories: Window Sheets (SU), Fun Foam (Michaels), Springtime Sequins (Pretty Pink Posh), Black Hemp Twine (Hemptique), Clear Seed Beads (from my beading stash)

Thanks for stopping by! Please pay a visit to the rest of the Design Team at Stamp Ink Paper, and we hope you'll play along, too!

So pretty Sandy - and I totally agree, who can resist a shaker card, especially with those gorgeous sparkly sequins!

So pretty! Do you have a tutorial on how you made this card? Did you glue a die cute sentiment on top of the acetate? Thank you

There a few interesting points soon enough on this page but I do not determine if they all center to heart. There is some validity but I will take hold opinion until I check into it further. Great post , thanks and that we want a lot more! Put into FeedBurner at the same time Balloons Arch
