A recycled shaker card


Last night I made a birthday card for my brother. This is my second shaker card and I must say I really enjoyed using this technique explained by Karen Day on Art Impressions' blog (click on the link for all the details). Very easy and so versatile, it works with so many dies. So I first cut out my frame out of a coca-cola box 4 times and one last time from a blue patterned paper.

I kept the center of the blue die cut to use it as my shaker background. I stamped and embossed in white the music notes and my sentiment (Happy Birthday). I added the sequins and colored the hoot's hat with the same colors.  As always, I added some Stickles on the hat. My card's background is made with a patterned paper and I glued on it a flower I cut out from another patterned paper. The hoot is mounted on 2D foam and on the frame. Voilà!

I'm submitting my card to these challenges:
- Art Impressions challenge #178 Shake, rattle & roll
- Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge: Recycle/Upcycle 
- Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge: Shake it up
- Simon Says Stamp Work It Wednesday January: Use something new (used a new technique)

Material used:
- Stamps: Music Notes (Art Impressions), Birthday hoot (Art Impressions), Bonne fête (Simple à souhait)
- Die: Labels 2 (Spellbinders)
- Spectrum Noir markers
- Patterned papers: Recollections, DCVW
- Sequins
- Stickles: Stardust (Ranger)
