Rosalyn's 2nd Birthday

 Here's a fun and colourful birthday card I made for my 2 year grand niece. I  used  "cuppycake with a HUGGABUG ON TOP"(Stamping Bella); stamps and die cuts from Make It Market Kit:Shakers & Sprinkles (Papertrey Ink).

Card stock and Inks: Hibiscus Burst, Limeade Ice & Hawaiian Shores

 I had seen some shaker cards made with an acetate pouch and thought I would try that technique. However, the confetti sprinkles didn't really 'shake' inside the pouch, so I decided to glue the multicolour circles onto the background card. (Stitched Rectangles) which I had prepared with ink blending and stamped sentiment.  The top acetate layer was stitched to the card with white embroidery floss.

The cupcake image was stamped, coloured with copic markers and then fussy cut before attaching to the front of the 'shaker' panel.The word die was cut from Hibiscus Burst card stock. The card front was stamped with the confetti from Birthday Style, before adhering the shaker panel.

I repeated the confetti stamping on the inside of the card and then added a Stitched Rectangle with the sentiment. (Big Birthday Wishes)

Here's the finished card, envelope and gift ready for the birthday girl!!
Envelope|: Polka Dot Parade Alphabet; Heart-2-Heart #2

Just looking back on my blog feed since I've been taking a long break (shoulder surgery and life) and saw your amazing card! This is so cheerful and fun. I pinned it! I pair that PTI Shakers and Sprinkles kit with different images too, so it was fun to see this one. Hope you're doing well.
