The Birthday Project - Shaker Cards

Despite different backgrounds, beliefs, and traditions, one thing we share that unites us and is worth celebrating is the birthday of friends and family. Recognizing the special day of someone you love with a handcrafted card straight from the heart is always a good idea and if stocking your stash with unique birthday designs is on the agenda, have we got the perfect challenge for you! 

Our monthly Birthday Project challenge features ideas for getting creative with your birthday card making. Our team is excited to share their ideas, and we’re ALL excited to see how the challenges inspire you!

You Hear That? I Hear Something Awesome!

Shaker cards are ridiculously addictive - both to create and to play with. That “shooka, shooka” sound your recipient will hear before they even break the envelope’s seal is a sure sign that something AMAZING will be found within! Join the team this month as they share inventive birthday-themed shaker cards.

Handmade card by Melania Deasy featuring products from My Favorite Things #mftstamps

Melania created two shaker elements on her card with the Cloud Shaker Window & Frame Die-namics. She created gorgeous rainbow backdrops within her clouds and filled them both with an assortment of clear sequins and beads. She completed her design with a scattering of brightly colored stars and two Magical Unicorns, complementing her majestic clouds perfectly.

Handmade card by Barbara Anders featuring products from My Favorite Things #mftstamps

Barbara went big and bold with her shaker element creating a large, sequin-filled balloon as the focus on her card. She filled her balloon with bright, rainbow colors and completed her design with a sentiment stamped both inside and outside her balloon and a cute chick image, ready to celebrate!
