Make A Wish Sequin Shaker Card

                                              bloghop


Hello Friends! I'm excited to be participating in the Sequin Shaker Blog Hop hosted by Pretty Pink Posh! This is the very first sequin shaker card I've made and it was a lot of fun! I can't believe it's taken me so long to try this. Anyway, here's my card...

I made a birthday card as you can see and I loaded it up with a ton of sequins from the Pretty Pink Posh Shop. Be sure to take a look at my supply list to see the various colors I used. My absolute favorite sequin is the Sparkling Clear. It's soooo pretty in real life. Just like its name suggests, it is clear and very sparkly. I love them so much, I adhered a few on the outside of my card, too!

I stamped the cupcake onto white card stock and cut it out. I colored the candle flame, cake and frosting with Copic markers, then I did some paper piecing. I sprinkled the frosting with clear glitter for extra sparkle...cuz you know me! :) Next, I randomly stamped confetti bits onto the white card stock and adhered the cupcake on top. I assembled the shaker, then adhered it onto my card base. I stamped the sentiment with Versamark and embossed it. I used liquid glue behind the words to adhere the vellum. And to finish it off, I added a few more sequins. I really wanted this card to be fun, cheerful and festive! So what do you think?!

And this is how I finished off the inside of my card...more confetti and a few fireworks bursts, really help to make the card extra special. I added a strip of the same patterned paper I used on the outside to bring everything together.




Well, that it's for me. Thanks for stopping by! I hope you visit again! Enjoy the Hop!

Blessings~

Yay, Barb! Your first shaker card is a huge success! I, too, am surprised that you haven't tried this before! Talk about hitting it smack out of the park, though! Love the sequins, the cupcake and how fun you decorated the inside of the card. I hope that there are more shaker cards in your future! :)

What a great shaker card, Barb! I recognized the cupcake stamp immediately, since I have that same set and love it! So I had to click through from the PPP blog and take a closer look. Not at all sorry I did, either. This card is a great inspiration. Tfs!
