SEE-THRU SHAKER BIRTHDAY CARD

Hello and welcome! I am so pleased to show you this card using the Altenew Vintage Roses stamp set. The roses and leaves in the set are stamped in layers with different shades of the same color. The effect is beautiful.

To make this Shaker Card, I stamped my pattern of roses twice; once on the top of my folded card base and once on another piece of card stock to be layered on top. Then I die cut the card base, the top panel, and a piece of fun foam to layer in between to create space for my shaker. I added acetate to the top and bottom of the shaker so you could see right through the middle of the card, added the sequins and sealed up the shaker.

I stamped the sentiment on one of the die cut squares, inked the edges, and adhered it to the inside of the card so it could be seen through the shaker. The finishing touches include a triple bow of satin ribbon, lace ribbon, and some pearls.
