SOC - Happy Birthday Shaker Card

Hi everyone, 

I have fallen in love with my Cricket once again and used it to make my first shaker card for this months project. It has helped me to make all the decorations for my little girl's first birthday party too. 

Today I am sharing with you the birthday card that I made from hubs and I to our little girl. I used the Teresa Collins Sophisticated Cricket cartridge and created this number one shaped birthday card.

I cut the white number one at 5 1/2 inches on the shadow effect and then moved the cricket two spaces horizontally and two spaces vertically in to make the white border and then cut the scroll font one again at 5 1/2 inches in pink to create the space for the for the shaker window.

 I cut the transparency and the two-base 1's at 5 1/2 inches on the shadow effect, assembled the shaker wells and then fill the shaker with iridescent white, pink, and clear seed beads. And my little girl's card was done. There is just enough space for hubs and I to write a little message to her. 

I really love how this card came out and I like that it is not the traditional 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 size shaker card. I hope she enjoys it when she gets older. 

This also opens the playing field for shaped shaker cards! 😉 

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope this sparks some inspiration for you when making shaker cards. And there you have it.

Until next time,
