MFT November Birthday Project Challenge - Shaking it Up!


Sequins, confetti, even candy sprinkles — all are GREAT options to add to a birthday shaker card to reinforce the theme and add a super fun "shicka shicka" shaker sound for your recipient to enjoy. If you haven't tried a shaker card yet — today's samples from the team are sure to encourage you to give it a shot! Be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for all the details!

How about a wine glass full of sequins to celebrate a birthday! For this card, I started by creating my shaker element by cutting Wine Glass Shaker Window and Frame Die-namics and completing it as a "stand alone" shaker element. That is, it's not inserted in the card front but sits on top. Once that was done I turned my attention to the card front.

To do this I first sponged Tumbled Glass Distress Ink on Strathmore Bristol Smooth card stock then spattered it with white and red craft ink and silver acrylic ink. That was popped up on a Sweet Tooth card stock edges with paper from Christmas Cheer Patterned paper.

Next I adhered the wine glass to the card front, added the jaunty Santa hat from Merry and Bright with all the Trimmings Die-namics and finished off with the sentiment, from Sassy Pants Holiday Too Stamp Set heat embossed on Red Hot card stock cut with Essential Stitched Sentiment Strips Die-namics.

I couldn't resist adding this snarky sentiment from the same set to the inside of the card.

And that's it from me today! Thanks so much for stopping by! See you soon!
