Happy Birthday Shaker and Die Cut Smiles

These are the last two rainbow cards for a bit... other projects are keeping me busy! 

The first card is a shaker card and here is the link where this card inspiration can be found. The word HAPPY was die cut into the center of the card. Several balloons were stamped (two step stamping) along with some stars. The shaker components are tiny dark pink beads and blue sequins. I added the stamped BIRTHDAY sentiment at the bottom of the card.

The second card is also a die cut card and a link to that card idea can be found here. The word "smiles" was die cut three times from a piece of white cardstock and mounted on top of the inked background. I mounted the card front on black cardstock and stamped a small sentiment and fussy cut it where it was added at the bottom corner. A few sequins finished off this card. The photo makes it look like the effect of this card is backwards... it looks like the "smiles" sections are inlaid whereas that piece of white cardstock is attached with foam tape on the base. Sometimes photography can really change the appearance of a card!

  1. Both super fab cards! It's also funny how differently people see things. I see the Smile card as 3 raised Smiles with a raised ink-blended frame around the edge and I further thinks that's very cool! LOL Oh well, it all looks good! xoxo


Thank you so much for leaving a comment - it truly makes me smile :)
