A Shaker Birthday Card

Popping in for simple shaker card today.  I needed a birthday card for a coworker and hadn't used these stamps that I'd give it a try.  I followed Jennifer McGuire's Shaker Card video tutorial.  The balloons were stamped onto colored cardstock and fussy cut by hand (no die here!)

The glittery goodness in the center are all from Michael's Recollection brand.  I had originally bought them for use on my son's graduation cards, but decided to go a different way.  My one regret with the card was that I think there is too much shake in this card.  I could have used quite a bit less and still had a wonderful card.

This process was simple to execute and will definitely be an added weapon in the arsenal.  Give it a try.  It is really not difficult and does create a lovely visual presentation.

I've decided to link up with City Crafter Challenge Blog Week-272 Create a Masculine Birthday Card.  Come be inspired or join the fun!
