Happy First Birthday!!

Yesterday was my Niece's First Birthday and I wanted to create a fun card that would grab her attention! So I decided to create a Shaker card... What 1 year old doesn't love to shake stuff to see what happens?

I started with a white panel and then I die cut a circle using a circle framelit. The I stamped the stars (ME ~ Carnival Toppers) and colored them in with Copics. I stamped the bunny (ME ~ Carnival Cupckaes)  hat & balloon (ME ~ Carnival Toppers) on  another piece of white and colored them in with Copics and cut them out. 

I added a piece of acetate behind the circle and stamped the balloon string using some StazOn black ink. Then I glued the bunny and balloon into place and drew the balloon string into the bunny's hands.

I die cut a banner ( ME ~ Basic Set) from some Melon Mambo card stock and heat embossed the sentiment onto it in white and added it just under the circle with dimensional adhesive. Then I cute a square of Hello Sunshine paper (Lawn Fawn) and added some sequins (Pretty Pink Posh) into the center in a pile and added some foam adhesive around the acetate circle on the back. I laid the front panel over the small square with the sequins securing the edges and you have a Shaker panel! 

I created a card base out of some Bermuda Bay card stock and added the front panel with some additional dimensional adhesive. Perfect for a 1 year old.. and she loved it!
