A Birthday shaker card!

Well, you know I had to have that Fuse tool to make shaker cards, because it looked so easy, then of course I had a little trouble, had to return mine and get a new one and now it has not come out of the box and it has been 6 months!
I was at the Craft Warehouse the other day and found these awesome
impression obsession shaker card pouches and had to buy them.
Boy do they make it easy to use!!
And they are self adhesive...!!  SCORE one for me!!
I love this "Hooray" pattern paper pack from PTI, so I selected the pink ombre one (this is for a three year old girl!) and die cut a circle.
On my card face I traced the circle and then I stamped stars all over it using the same inks I used for the three layer cake (all PTI: lovely lady, hibiscus burst, raspberry fizz and pure poppy).  Then I die cut a number "3" from Hawaiian Shores paper and glued it down.
I added lots of little sequins and sprinkles etc inside that circle.
All I had to do was peel off the adhesive and lay that pouch down and voila!!  Everything is all sealed in and it shakes like a charm!  (except there is some static to it!).
My cake is made with the stamps and dies from the SOA "Young at Heart" collection, this particular stamp is from Sugar Pea Designs and is called "Bring on the Cake".  I love those three little candles (I colored those with copics so I could have the yellow flames!).
The added little sentiment 'for the birthday girl' is from the PTI Make a Wish collection.
I think this turned out darling and I think this particular three year old will love shaking it!

Have a super fabulous week my friends!!
Heart Hugs!
ps, Lin, I remade the whole card!!

  7. Colleen, wonderful card love the bits of stamping within the window as well. Bet the little Miss that got this thought it was the best thing since slice bread.
    I have those windows as well and had forgotten about them till a couple of weeks ago. Have started using them too, one of my use it up things. Have to admit once you get going with that fuse tool its amazing how easy it can be especially if you want to particular shapes.


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a makes my day!
