Happy Birthday Shaker Card

Happy Birthday Shaker Card
Made another birthday card as I was inspired by the tools on hands that has been taken out when I was made another card earlier as well my crafty hands are itching to make more.

Freshly Made Sketches #309 - A Sketch by Linda
For this card, I am adopting the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches #309 - A Sketch by Linda as shown above.

Close-up: Shaker element with 'Happy Birthday' sentiment
I decide to make a shaker card as I would like to use the Memory Box Stitched Happy Birthday Circle Frame Die as the shaker front where all the confetti of sequins and glitter flakes shake behind the stitched happy birthday circle dies. So, I die cut the Memory Box Stitched Happy Birthday Circle Frame Die onto a gold foiled card stock and foam. For the foam circle die cuts, the 'happy birthday' wording are trimmed away so that I can use the stitched circle alone as one of the shaker component because the circle dies sizes I have on hands are no match to this Memory Box Stitched Happy Birthday Circle Frame Die. Another open scalloped stitched circle is die cut onto a metallic embossed pink card stock and plastic to be the base of the shaker component and window. The open scalloped stitched circle plastic need to be trimmed to fit the gold foiled stitched happy birthday circle dies. The components are assembled and finally, some red sequins and purple and white glitter flakes are filled in the center of the metallic embossed pink open scalloped stitched circle die before closed it down with the stitched happy birthday circle frame.

As the sketch requires another embellishment, a flower is stamped, colored using Copic markers and die cut using matching dies. Leaves are stamped onto green card stocks, die cut using matching dies and attached behind the flower.

On a gold card base, a fireworks pattern washi tape is put on as in sketch follow by the shaker element. The flower is attached onto the card as in sketch using foam tape and it have to be doubled up to cater the shaker element heights.

The card is finished off by adding some shimmer onto the flower.

Zipper Card: Birthday It's Not A Matter of Counting Years....
Made this card for my best friend whose birthday is tomorrow and she is in Singapore. *Aiks* My birthday card to her is always late except last year which I manage to post on time.


Sketch Saturday Week #485
For this card, I am adopting the sketch from Sketch Saturday Week #485 as shown above.

Two (2) types of different pattern papers are trim into length with two (2) and three (3) pieces of each designs. They are then attached onto a yellow card base as shown the sketch.

Close-up: The zipper with hidden message underneath
I always wanted to make a zipper card with hidden message where the recipient can peel the liner zipper to reveal the hidden message. The zipper border dies and stamp set I bought long time ago are get to get used and inked up until I saw the sketch from Sketch Saturday Week #485 which is just perfect to insert the zipper. On a red strip, the zipper border dies is used to die cut the zipper function on it. Then, the hidden message is stamped onto the card base on top of the five (5) pieces of pattern paper. The red zipper strip is attach onto the hidden message as shown in the sketch.

Close-up: The butterfly
A butterfly body is die cut from a mixed colors using block stamping technique. The intricate of the butterfly is die cut using a gold stock. Once the butterfly body and intricate has been assembled, it is attached onto the card base at the left corner. It is purposely offset to give some interests.


Close-up: The sentiment
Finally, the sentiment is stamped onto the card base together with the 'pull here' instruction.
