I made this card with sketch 225. the horizontal panel was changed to a shaker component, I am seeing so many shaker cards, I thought I’d do one.

happy bday tulipsI initially had a different background with dies and flowers but did not like it so changed it to a simple stencil with pickled raspberry distress inks on Blueprint 15. To make a shaker card, I used rectangle stay 2 makes it quick to size all the parts. I first embossed the sentiment on a piece of vellum with gold ranger embossing powder. if I had rethought it I would have changed the border to a light pink. I added gold pink- dark and light sequins. I love these tulips, I colored it with copics and added clear rock candy to it. I f you want something thicker than wink of stella, clear rock candy would help. Added more sequins for the final touch. Rounded the top corner with corner chomper.

Here is an inside.

I am adding this to Simon Says Stamp- CAS- not sure if shaker falls in that category but the simplicity is CAS for me and Loves rubber stamps- use at least 2 dies.
