Modified Birthday Shaker Card

Today, I am sharing a modified birthday shaker card featuring the Sweet Ice Cream Stamp Set and the Ice Cream Corner Designer Series Paper.  Really, it’s a “faux” shaker card but best of all, it’s easier and quicker to make than a traditional shaker card.  Tips for creating it are below. Since my grandson has an upcoming birthday and loves ice cream, I knew the Ice Cream Corner Suite would be perfect to use for creating his birthday card.  And for additional fun, a shaker card is always a perfect go-to design.

Tips for a Modified Birthday Shaker Card:
  • To create the shaker portion, cut designer series paper to desired layer size.  For the feature card, the Ice Cream Corner Designer Series Paper is cut 3-3/4″ x 5″.  Insert the designer series paper into a clear medium envelope.  Add your shaker elements such as the Ice Cream Corner Sprinkles.  Seal the envelope flap, then fold the excess envelope sides to the back and tape down to hold in place.  Use Tear & Tape to attach to your base.

  • For an extra touch, the Happy Birthday sentiment is stamped first with Cinnamon Cider then stamped again with Versamark.  Top with clear emboss powder and heat set.  NOTE: Stamparatus is used to ensure stamping accuracy.  Use paper snips to trim around the lettering. 
  • A full list of the products for this card are listed below under Project Materials.

Hopefully, you won’t be bored with the slew of birthday cards that I will be sharing for the next month.  In our family, there are lots of March birthdays so it’s the current design focus.

The modified birthday card was lots of fun to make.  Add a comment if you have questions on recreating the card or would like me to make a demonstration video!
