I made this Birthday Shaker card from a paper CD holder. I bought a box of these at the office supply store ... they were fairly inexpensive and the best part is getting friends to go in together to share the cost! This is what the CD holder looks like before the fun begins!
I cut a piece of white card stock 4.75 x 4.75 and I stamped the image and colored it in with copic markers and glitter pens and I sponged the background with some orange to give it some texture. In the four outermost corners of the white card stock with the stamped image (L451). I put 4 pop dots to lift the paper up so that my confetti will move freely inside the CD holder. Then, I added the stamped cardstock, the confetti and then I sealed it shut!
stamp K662 to make the bubbles. I used different colored inks to make it look festive and then I added the star buttons. I don't like to see my buttons "naked" or without string... but what to do when you don't have matching string? I took a super skinny piece of paper and used it instead of thread to match the orange card stock background! So easy to do and the color will always match!
For the base of the card... I cut a piece of orange cardstock 5.25 x 10.5 and folded it in half to mount the sealed CD holder to.I cut 2 pieces of card stock for the inside of the card. The blue is 4.75 x 4.75 and the white is 4.5 x 4.5. I inked the edges of both card stock pieces and then I stamped the sentiment(G483) in orange to match... then next... the balloons (E491).And... that is my card! This is a really easy way to make a shaker because the window is already made for you! I hope you will give this technique a try... I know that you will enjoy the result and so will the person who receives the card!

(read...ENABLED) to these gorgeous stamps. They are from a stamp line called PAPER MAKEUP... how cute is that? You use makeup to enhance your face... so you use STAMPS to enhance your PAPER... get it!(LOL) She has beautiful sentiments and the other stamps are just plain PRECIOUS!!! She has animals and fairies and MONSTERS!!! OH MY!
So let me tell ya about my cards... The first one is a sentiment from Paper Makeup. I used SU designer paper and my new scroll punch. This paper called for pearls, scrolls and paper roses! I love the way my MS punch made the paper look like lace... I used my nesties as well and here is the card.
For this next card, I used one of the gorgeous Fairy images from Paper Makeup and colored her with copics. I used SHIMMERZ on her wings and on my embossed background paper. Oh yeah... I used SHIMMERZ on the little paper flowers also! I stamped the fairy on paper that I cut with the large nesties. I cut the background circles with my nesties as well and added details with gel and glitter pens. I added the ribbon and the heart button on it! I thought it looked like she had scattered that one as well. More scrolls and then the dots and here it is!
Oh and how can you even be afraid of THIS monster? How cute is DRECK? I think what HE is afraid of is 40!!! Don't be scared, Dreck... it only hurts for a minute! He is one of the darling monsters (or is he an aliens?) from Paper Makeup. I used my trusty nesties again and the copics to color this little guy. I had some awesome ribbon that matched my color scheme perfectly and it also matched all of the dots! I used crystal effects on his eye and SHIMMERZ on the dots and the horns! I love the way this turned out and I really love this IMAGE!!! it is just SOO cute!
So those are the cards... please take a minute to check out Paper Makeup stamps... I know that you will enjoy what you see there! Have a good one!!!
