Happy Birthday Shaker Card

Hi everyone, I am up on the Craftin Desert Divas blog today and I want to share this fun birthday shaker card with you today.

I used the cute lion from the It's All About Zoo stamp set as well as the balloons included in the set. I stamped the images on watercolor cardstock and colored them in with watercolor markers. 
For the shaker part of the card, I used a white top-folded notecard and cut out a piece from the top. I used a clear zip log bag to create the shaker pocket that was slightly larger than the part I cut out from the card. I filled the pocket with Emerald Isle sequins, closed it up and adhered it to the notecard.

To hide the sides of the shaker pocket, I adhered a larger and smaller white strip on top. I used the "Happy Birthday" sentiment from the Simply Said stamp set and stamped it in the bottom left corner of the card with black ink. To finish off the card I adhered the little lion to the card using 3D foam squares.

Here are the products I used

I really hope you enjoyed my card. I am looking forward to seeing your creations on the blog.
