MFT April Birthday Project

Shaker cards are ridiculously addictive - both to create and to play with. That
“shooka, shooka” sound your recipient will hear before they even open the envelope
is a sure sign that something AMAZING will be found within!

Join the team this month as we share inventive birthday-themed shaker cards
and you could be the random winner of a $50 MFT gift voucher.
Here's my shaker card which came together quickly thanks to a circle die
and some chicks that were in my stash, waiting to be used on a project.

I stamped an In the Buff panel with Balloon Strings in Versamark ink. After
die cutting the scalloped circle through it, I adhered a piece of acetate over it.
Foam tape was doubled up around the circle. I stamped the sentiment on a
scrap of Limelight card stock, then cut out a circle to fit over the opening.

 I added several spoonfuls of sequins in the opening, then covered it with the green
circle. I adhered the panel to an In the Buff card base, then added the five chicks on top.
