Circle Shaker Card – Happy Birthday!

Happy Wednesday, all! When I saw the new Cupcake Critters stamp set and Party Mix jewels from Pretty Pink Posh, I immediately knew I wanted to create a shaker card. A birthday shaker card seemed perfect!

(Wondering what I used in this video? Everything is linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post, or in the text below. Compensated affiliate links used when possible).

Before stamping, I prepped all the circle pieces for my card. I cut five pieces using the Nested Circles dies from Simon:

  1. Back of card: largest circle die (white cardstock)
  2. Front of card: largest circle die (white cardstock)
  3. Frame for shaker area: largest and next size smaller circle dies (white cardstock)
  4. Shaker window: largest circle die (clear window plastic)
  5. Black area for greeting and images: smaller circle die (black cardstock)

I stamped the greeting and critter stamps from the Cupcake Critters stamp set using VersaMark ink on the black circle and applied white embossing powder. After heat setting the embossing powder, I colored the images using Polychromos colored pencils.

NOTE: To see the assembly of the shaker card using the Party Mix jewels, please watch the video above.

Thanks for stopping by today! I’ll see you on Friday for another video. :)

    Boy you nailed it! These critters are so cute. Love it.

    Very cute! When I have a shaker with something over it, I fill in that area with foam so I don’t need as much shaker material. Hope that might work for you next time.

    I white embossed a stamped image on black cardstock. It’s waiting on my desk to be colored. See, you do inspire me! I won’t pretend mine will be nearly as cute as yours, but it’s fun to make the attempt! Thanks!
