Heart Shaker Birthday

One of my grand nieces turned four in April and I knew 
she would love a shaker card!! 
Parker's favourite colours are pink and purple, 
so I chose some colourful dots and sparkle stamps 
along with Hibiscus Burst card base and 
heart frame: (Shakers and Sprinkles kit)


A multitude of dots  (Polka Dot Basics, Beautiful Blooms, Dot Spot) were stamped onto Stamper's Select White with Sweet Blush, Hibiscus Burst, Lavender Moon, Winter Wisteria, Spring Moss, Limeade Ice and Lemon Tart inks. I also added some of the star images from the Sparkle and Shine stamp sets.

Winter Wisteria ink was used to stamp.. Happy Birthday..  
(Clear Dollar Stamps: Tag It!) and 
Shakers and Sprinkles sentiments. 
The card front was impressed with Canvas Impression Plate 
before applying to the carde base. A variety of confetti from the 
Shakers and Sprinkles kit were  added to the heart shaped frame.
Word die Sprinkles was cut twice from Lemon Tart card stock; 
copic markers were used to create a ombre look on the word 
before attaching it to the window. 


Card Interior
The inside of the card was finished with a white panel, 
stamped with the same dots used on the front. 
Stylish Sentiments: Birthday sentiment was 
stamped with  Hibiscus Burst ink.


I always like adding the birthday age to a child's card. 
This time I used the circle stamp (Postmarks) and
number '4' (Mini Scrap Series: Tabs).


Thanks for visiting today.
