My Daughter Shaker Birthday Card

Shaker Birthday Card
The next two (2) weeks is my daughter sixth birthday, well by birth date, she is just turned six years old but she been admitting that she is six years old early of 2012. That is some of the disadvantages of being born in the end of the year! You celebrate your birthday late and you get older right after your actual birth date!

I want to make a special card for her. Thus, I decided to make a shaker card for her so that she can play a little with the birthday card! I think she will be excited when she got to know that she can shake the card!

Cute Cards Thursday Challenge 242 - A Sketch
The sketch from Cute Cards Thursday Challenge 242 is just perfect for my shaker card as I want to keep the card design as simple as possible. This is because is my first time trying to make a shaker card. I been watching some videos and tutorials which is quite easy in theory but practically, I am not sure. Guess, I just have to make one to know the tricks!

Close-up : Colored princess
The princess is stamped on a white circle and colored with Copic markers. Then, the foam ring is attached onto the white circle and let dry. After the foam ring is dried, some pearl hearts are added into the circle before attaching the acetate circle.

Close-up : The pearl hearts moved around when shake
A pattern paper where the four (4) corners are rounded is attached onto a pink card base which the corners has been rounded as well. A red embossed card stock is cut according to the position the shaker would be and rounded at the corners. 

Close-up : The sentiment
The shaker is attached accordingly to the back of the red embossed card stock. The red embossed card stock are attached on to the card base with dimensional foams. The sentiment is stamped on a pink circle and some faux stitching are added to the lining of the circle in white.

Dimension : 10.16cm x 15.24 cm or 4" x 6"
Type : Horizontal fold
Inlay : None
