Happy Birthday Emily!!

I have been wanting to make a shaker card ever since I watched someone post a blog video of their shaker card...probably AT LEAST a year ago!!  Now they've become popular again recently it seems & I decided I was going to finally make one "come hell or high water"!!  (Part of my New Year's Eve resolution to be more creative & try new techniques). Since my daughter Emily's birthday is coming up March 1st....she is the unknowingly recipient of my first ever shaker card experiment.  There are several ways to make shaker cards, but I decided to follow a tutorial posted by Jennifer McGuire that produced a "No Bulk" shaker card.  Jennifer posts excellent video tutorials on card making techniques.  Anyway...I followed her post for the most part.  I made the window cutout using Spellbinder's 5 x 7 Matting  Basics die. The sentiment "birthday wishes" stamp on the acetate front is from Avery Elle, and the "On your special day" stamp is from a totally different stamp set that I cannot remember/identify at this time!  I sprinkled some Martha Stewart hearts & star sequins inside,  along with some Walmart purchased silver octagon shaped sequins & some blue colored sequins from "I don't know where"!  A completely experimental card, but I think my daughter Emily will love & appreciate it just the same!!  Thanks for stopping by to take a look/see!!

What fun! I like that it takes up the whole card. I made my first shaker card last year, but I will have to check out the no bulk method. Thanks for the idea.
