Birthday Shaker Card

My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge 389

My Favorite Things Color Challenge 94

Simon Say Stamp Wednesday Challenge

Welcome! Hope you are having a terrific day.

I started my card today by using the My Favorite Things A2 Rectangle STAX set 1, and using the smallest rectangle from the set, cutting 3 rectangles in a panel of Neenah Solar White Cardsock. 

I then used the same rectangle die and the second to smallest of the My Favorite Things A2 Rectangle STAX set 2, and made three frames from some gold foil cardstock.

I used Simon Says Stamp Apricot and Lake Shores ink along with Broken China Distress ink and My Favorite Things Lemon Chiffon to color in the three rectangles and a star I created from the My Favorite Things Stitched Star Peek-a-Boo Window die.

I stamped the chick, cow, and sheep from the My Favorite Things Animal Farm on a piece of window acetate where they would by over the rectangle cut-outs. I stamped the cow on both the acetate and the cut-out panel. 

Then I glued the frames around the rectangles and the panel to the acetate. Then I drew on the parts of the cow that was covered by the frame, and colored in the cows spots. I also added more curly wool to the sheep.

I then adhered the colored rectangles to a black piece of cardstock and applied some 3M   foam tape around them. I laid the cut-out panel on top and decided that I wanted some ribbon above and below the cut out shapes.

I added some small gold and clear sequins to two of theft-out areas, and silver glass glitter to the center cut-out area. then I adhered the panel tot he top.

I wanted to dress up the star so I stamped the Howdy from the Animal Farm set on it and used a Faber Castel liner pen to add dots and dashes to the outer edges.

I used a scrap strip of black cardstock to stamp the Happy Birthday from All of Us, and then white heat embossed it. I adhered these to the panel and then adhered the panel to a Neenah Solar White card base.

Thank you so much for visiting me.
