Hello everyone! I recently made my first shaker card and it was a lot of fun. So much fun, I couldn't stop at one! This card is the birthday card I made for my husband's 50th birthday earlier this week. Rather than do the black over the hill kind of thing, I decided to go golden instead.
The shape of this card is what is called a tall and thin style. When closed, it's 3.5" wide by 6" tall. I used a blue and brown paisley card stock as the base, then I layered some brown and white polka dot paper, a strip of mustache paper and a final rectangle of matching paisley paper. To mask the area where the mustache paper and the paisley met, I applied a gold strip sticker. All the papers came from the DCWV The Guy Stack that I picked up at my local AC Moore.
The last few things I did to complete the card was cut out the two-layered banner and stamp it with Happy Birthday. I also cut a thin piece of brown ribbon and a small bow to create the balloon's string.
Well, there you have it! My second shaker card. Hope you have a fantastic Sunday.
