Shakin' just for fun!


Here's a card I made for our niece's birthday. One thing about a shaker card - no one can resist picking it up and giving it a shake!

I kept it quite simple, focusing on her name (spelled with My Stamp Box Tall Solids Alpha in some of my favourite colours!).

I stamped the happy birthday after I put the card together, which was a bit of a mistake - you can see that the bottom half of 'birthday' was not as well supported by foam tape as the rest of the stamp. I always have to learn these things the hard way!

Fun and festive shaker card Ardyth! Your niece will love it, anyone loves a shaker. Would have never noticed the inking but have made that mistake myself too many times before.

Such a cute and bright, happy shaker card Ardyth! I love those letters in the happy colors. I too have to always learn the hard way when stamping after I've used the foam tape! lol Glad to know that I'm not alone. Hugs, Brenda

This is so cute! I really need to venture into shaker card territory one of these days! Love the colors of the big bold letters! Had you not mentioned the wee miss-stamp, I never would have noticed it at all :)

Wonderful shaker card. And, no one is going to see your little mis-stamp. Too overwhelming to see all those fabulous large rainbow letters and all those cute shaking sequins.
