Shake, shake, shake

I was inspired recently by the shaker card that MaryAnn Maldonado unveiled on her Lump, Bump and Clump blog and remembered that I had a new die from Simon Says Stamp called Balloon Bouquet that would work similarly with that card design.

I wound up using the die on a scrap of red metallic paper.

Pulled out some leftovers from a recent Stampin Up (SU) Paper Pumpkin kit to construct the shaker box and a little girl image from Mama Elephant's In My Heart stamp set.

I put all the balloon pieces through a Xyron sticker maker to have good coverage for placing them on the outside of the shaker box.

I put the Copic-colored little girl in the box with the confetti and sequins.

Stamped the SU greeting and matted it with more of that red paper.

The background is another scene from an old saved golf calendar.

I stamped an SU birthday greeting, circle punched it and matted it with more red paper and put it on the inside of the card.

I hope my friend gets a kick out of it. That's it. We're supposed to be traveling on Monday but another snow storm is coming our way. Wish me luck and have a crafty day!

Love that you upcycled an calendar for the background! What a fun card!
