So Much Cake Shaker | ft. MFT's "Beary Special Birthday"

Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you are having a great day.

It happens every time. Every birthday; that delicious cake is just staring at you and you want to just gobble the whole thing up. We've all been there. Normally we don't actually do that. It wouldn't be proper.

Someone forgot to tell that to this little guy.

To begin, I stamped this sweet little bear from MFT's "Beary Special Birthday" with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on 110lb Copic-friendly cardstock.

I then used my largest oval die to do some partial die cutting, I fussy cut the space around him. I then coloured him with Copic markers, I used some Glossy Accents by Ranger over the icing of the cake and then dipped it in the Clear Rock Candy Glitter.

I lined up the top panel with the bottom to determine where I wanted the balloons. They are also from the same set, stamped with Memento ink and coloured with Copics. I used a very light shade to colour background behind the balloons and the same shade to make some diagonal lines on the front panel.

I added a piece of acetate behind the window and created my shaker area with doubled up foam tape. I filled the space with sequins and chunky glitter and stuck them together. I thought it needed a little something more so I created so stitch lines with a thin multi-liner.

Finally I adhered the entire thing to a standard A2 sized card base. For the banner I die cut a piece of cardstock using the mini banner die from Lawn Fawn's "Magic Color Slider" die set.

I hope you like today's card and are inspired to create something of your own.
