Happy Birthday Simon Says Stamp!


My favorite challenge blog is celebrating their birthday this week and so I am entering this CAS birthday shaker card for a chance to win one of the gift certificates! Happy Birthday to Simon Says Stamp (being celebrated on their Wednesday challenge blog here.)  I love making shaker cards and bought this circular Happy Birthday die from Tessler Crafts with that type of card in mind. I stamped the fun  background from Fun Stampers Journey, then cut the center piece out. I sponged on aqua blue ink and attached the HB circle on the acetate piece on the back. I dumped in a bunch of birthday sequins and attached the shaker front to an A2 card base. Here is another view all shook up:


I am also entering this card in the "Use a Die-Cut" challenge at Creative Card Crew.

FABULOUS shaker card, Karen! Love this monochromatic card. The sentiment is awesome with your design! I have never seen this die with the Chinese sentiment "Happy Birthday" before. How cool (btw, the correct way of displaying the Chinese writing , you turn the die 90 degree clockwise, if interested ). Thanks so much for playing Simon Says Stamp Wednesday “Happy Birthday” Challenge!
