Birthday Shaker

Happy Friday and Happy Birthday to two of my siblings!

It is both my brother and sister's birthday today.  They are not twins they are actually three years apart in age exactly. So I am taking my sister to lunch today and made her a shaker card that is not shaking to freely.  I should have listened to the queen of Pretty Pink Posh Paulina Nakamura when she suggested a double layer of foam to allow the sequins to move easier!  I will just need to tell my sister not to shake her shaker card. She won't likely listen to me, she rarely does--lol.

I finally used Lawn Fawn Year Four birthday and did a little Copic colouring. I was so excited to use the dies, but I didn't want to put anything else inside the shaker to block the sequins from moving freely.

Good morning, Tracey! Love the card... that duo birthday must have caused a little stress in your Mom's life over the years =] I've always loved the 'hippo, birdy' and add 'two ewes!'

Have a great weekend =] Michele F.

I'm sorry it's not shaking so well, because it certainly is cute. I have finally gotten all my parts for Year Four and can't wait to use it. Thanks for the so cute idea.

You know no one is going to complain if the sequins don't behave themselves…. but I have a friend who loves to add things to the cards and every time I open the envelopes I have to be careful where I am…

Who can resist shaking a "shaker" card? How funny that your brother and sister were born on the exact same day! Did they hate sharing their special day when they were younger? Love the card and I bet your sister will too.

Cute card and happy birthday to your brother and sister! I made my first shaker card the other day and my sequins weren't moving around too freely either, so I'm glad for the tip about the double layer of foam tape!

This is so very adorable, and a super cute way to do a shaker card. I love the colors, and the way that your image is actually inside the shaker. Hope your sister doesn't try to shake, but you know she will--sisters are like that, and I'd do the same to my sister.

Greta said...

How adorable! Bet your sister loved this, Tracey!

Two of my granddaughters from two different families share the same birthday. The girls are exactly 20 years apart! Did your brother and sister like sharing their birthdays when they were kids, lol?! Fantastic shaker card. You'll definitely have to make more of these. You've got the knack! Perfect shade of purple for that frame too. Really sweet. Bev
