Let's Shake it Up For Birthday's

Happy Wednesday! It is time for another Brutus Monroe Inspiration Team Blog Hop. This week we are showcasing shaker cards and all of the fun ways you can create with them.

Brutus Monroe has several products to help you make fabulous shaker cards including two colors of foam tape, white and black along with self adhesive shaker pouches and a huge variety of sequins in many colors.

For today's card I decided to create a fun shaker card using the Happy Birthday die set, Birthday Circle stencil and foam tape to create the shaker element.
Let's get started on this shaking fun card. To begin I inked up a piece of cardstock with worn lipstick distress oxide, next using a spray bottle the stencil was sprayed with a heavy coat of water. Once the stencil is wet carefully flip it over onto the panel and careful use a rag to push down making sure the water reacts with the ink. Do not rub the stencil, you don't want it to shift.  Carefully pick up the stencil and let it dry.
Once the background had dried I used the Happy Birthday die set, to die cut three Happy's spaced down the front of the card. Make sure to keep the insides from your die to fill in once the acetate is added. For the Birthday I cut it from a rainbow background I had created for a previous card using
surface inks.

After the acetate was added to the back of the panel, use a small amount of glue to add the inside pieces of the word "Happy."  To create the area for my shaker bits I used white foam tape cut in half  to form long boxes around each Happy.
Three different colors of sequence were used for the insides, Cotton Candy  Ballerina, and Glass Slipper bottle cap sequins.  I used a generous amount of sequence behind each "happy." To finish off the back I added a panel of Mermaid Glitterstock. Finally, the Birthday die cut was adhered down and the entire panel was added to a card base.

I encourage you to create shaker cards that the recipient will love and you will have a blast Creating
Your Own Ending!
