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.
