Paper Sweeties Birthday Blog Hop!!!

Hello, friends! Welcome to a very special blog hop where Pink & Main is teaming up with Paper Sweeties to celebrate their 7th Birthday!!


I don't make many shaker cards but when I saw the awesome little package of Cupcake Sprinkles, I knew this was my only option, haha!! 


To create the shaker window, I used the second largest Cloudy Frames Dies and die cut it in the centre of a white panel cut with the largest die in the Stitched Rectangles Set 2 dies. After gluing the acetate to the back side of the panel, I adhered the frame portion on top.  I did add 2 layers of foam tape behind the window as these sequins are a bit thick.

I used the beautiful "congrats" sweet cuts from Paper Sweeties, which I coloured with alcohol markers to give an ombre effect.  I used a few images from the Bee Happy Stamp Set from Pink & Main. I coloured them with alcohol markers, as well, and used the co-ordinating dies to cut them out.


Before putting my shaker element onto the card base, I stamped a sub sentiment from the brand new Going Places Stamp Set from P&M. I think this sentiment is awesome! This card can be given for pretty much any occasion where a congrats are in order!

I foam mounted all the bees, glued the congrats die cut down and added the shaker to a white A2 card base.  A few touches of glitter pen and this card is done!


Thank you for hopping along with us today! Now, what's up for grabs??!!
