I have fallen in love with my cricket once again and used it to make my first shaker card for this months project. It has helped me to make all the decorations for my little girl's First Birthday party!! I can't believe a year has come and gone already!
So Today I am sharing with you the birthday card that I made from hubs and I to our little girl. I used the Teresa Collins Sophisticated Cricket cartridge and created this number 1 shaped birthday card.
I cut the white number 1 at 5 1/2 inches on the shadow effect and then moved the cricket two spaces horizontally and two spaces vertically in and then cut it again to create a border. I cut the scroll font 1 at 5 1/2 inches in pink to go inside the white border and to create the decorated space for the shaker window.
I cut the transparency and the two base 1's at 5 1/2 inches on the shadow effect, built the shaker well and then filled the shaker well with iridescent white and pink, and clear seed beads. And my little girl's card was done. There is just enough space on the inside of the card for hubs and I to write a little message to her.
I really love how this card came out and I like that it is not the traditional 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 size shaker card. I hope she enjoys it when she gets older.
This also opens the playing field for shaped shaker cards! 😉
Thanks for stopping by. I hope this sparks some inspiration for you when making shaker cards. And there you have it.
Until next time,
