MFT Happy Hippos – The Birthday Project Challenge

April 19, 2018
Hello friends!  It’s time for another monthly Birthday Project Challenge from My Favorite Things!  This month is all about shaker cards!  There’s just something that’s so much fun about a card that shakes, lol.
   My card today features the BB Happy Hippos Set combined with Blueprints Die-namics 31.  I stamped my hippos onto smooth white card stock and colored with Copic Sketch Markers (all colors used are listed at the very bottom of this post).  I then used the coordinating dies to cut them out.  For the plaid background of my card, I used the Sweet Celebration Paper Pack.  I diecut some ink blended grass (Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn Distress Inks) using the Grassy Fields Die-namics.
For the cloudy sky background, I blended some Sno Cone Premium Dye Ink over top of the Clouds Stencil.  I stamped my sentiment on top of the sky and used the circle shaker pouches to add my embellishments.  For my embellishments, I combined some beautiful Pretty Pink Posh Lemon Drop, Pansy Purple, Pink Blush, Sea Glass, Shamrock, Aquamarine and Amethyst Jewels.  Lastly, I added my images with some foam squares for added dimension.
Don’t forget to stop by the MFT Challenge & Inspiration Blog to see what other shaker card designs participating team members have come up with and for more info on how to play along for a chance to win!
Thank you for stopping by!  Wishing you all a wonderful day!
