For this card, I have to say I went a little over the top! I wanted to do a Shaker card with a birthday cupcake and I looked for what I could use to make the little candies inside the shaker frame… I eventually found what I would use! The Sweet Shop Specialty DSP (from last year Occasion Mini-Catalogue) had really pretty candies! I used the Owl punch which has a circle about the size of the candy and cut out a bunch of candies. I wanted to add some dimension so that they would move around when you shake the card, so I added Crystal Effect on each one! That was a pretty tedious process!!! After everything had dried, I was good to go! I did a step-card with 2 side-panels. I used a strip of Vellum for the greeting. I made the cherry with Crystal effect as well. It almost looked like a real one!
Here’s the card:
and a close-up of the Shaker Frame: (the candies moved inside the shaker frame!!!)
You can see the step-card and vellum a bit better on this picture:
and the inside of the card:
This is the designer paper that I used to cut out all the candies inside the Shaker frame:
