Shaker Birthday Card

balloon shaker card

Today I have a shaker card using the Bow Builder punch.  Yesterday I posted a video from Stampin’ Up! showing how to use the punch.  If you missed that post, click here.

I also used the new Balloon Framelits  and the new stamp set Celebrate Together.  (If you decide to purchase both of these, be sure to use the bundle code – you’ll save 15% – see the list of supplies below).

I made my confetti using the Stars Border Punch and Silver Glimmer Paper.  I also used silver sequins from a package of Frosted Sequins.  These were in the Holiday catalog but I just checked and they are on the Clearance Rack!  Besides the sequins, you’ll also receive pretty snowflakes that you can save for next year!

This set is photopolymer so it was very easy to place happy and birthday on my clear block so that they would fit on the front of the balloon.  I used StazOn but had to wait a bit for it to dry. I immediately cleaned my stamp when I was done.

I don’t usually make shaker cards so I wasn’t sure how it was going to come together but it worked fine!  I used the edges of my Stampin’ Dimensionals  (a part that you might be tempted to throw away, but save them) to create a barrier so my sequins wouldn’t fall out.   It wasn’t pretty to look at but that part gets all covered up!  It was fun to make and I was happy with the results!

I want to thank fellow demo Jen Arkfeld for the inspiration for this card!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!
