Happy Birhday Shaker Card

Today I have two shaker cards for you. Well, at least one in two color combinations. And I just love how they turned out. I was inspired by both Kristina Werner (who shared a few tips on shaker cards) and Nichol Spohr Magouirk (who created a couple of cards with distressed background and matching frames). So here I kind of combined these two influences. 

I started off stamping the amazing happy birthday sentiment from Mama Elephant on heat resistant acetate sheets and embossed it with gold embossing powder from WOW. Then, I created the distressed background piece. I used Canson Mix Media paper because I think the ink stays wet long enough to create a really nice and even blending. For the orange card I used Abandoned coral and Dried Marigold and blended both colors togeter. Using the double-piercred rectangle dies from Avery Elle, I die cut the background piece and also die cut a frame from the paper. To give the background a bit more interest I spritzed it with a few droplets of water. 

To assemble the shaker card I adhered the embossed acetate behind the frame and put down enough foam tape to create the needed dimension for my shaker material. I filled up the card with 6mm gold sequins and 4mm Tangerine sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

I used the same method to create the second card. But this time I used Twisted Citron and Cracked Pistachio to create the background and filled the shaker with 6mm gold sequins and 4mm dark green sequins.
