‘Shake Up’ a Happy Birthday

Hello!  Phew…Thursday already!  How do these days fly by so fast?  I’m not liking it at all, summer will be gone before we know it!  (HUGE SIGH…) It’s a hot day here today, so I’m in my air conditioned craft room making some cards.

Today I have a fun and bright birthday card to share with you.  I needed to make a birthday card and have been wanting to make a ‘shaker’ card for a while, so I decided today’s card would be just that kind. I used to make and see shaker cards everywhere, then they kind of went away, and now they are back!  I have always loved them and enjoyed making them. The stamps, dies and patterned paper are all made by The Stamps of Life.

The patterned paper is called Happy Collection, I used Star Dies to decorate the border of the vellum window, and added a few sequins to give the stars some sparkle.  I did the same for the ‘shaker’ part of the card.  The birthday candle and sentiment is also from TSOL called candles4birthday.  I think it turned out fun, bright and happy!

This card is actually for my husband’s aunt who is turning 98 years young and still going strong!  I thought she may enjoy ‘shaking’ it up a little;)  Thanks for stopping by today!  I enjoy and appreciate all questions and comments, so feel free to leave one. I hope you have a wonderful day.  Until next time…. Happy Stamping!
