Morning Everyone,

Having said I had never made a shaker card before I decided to make one for the Grandon's birthday, albeit a fairly simple one.

He's in his teens now and only really into gaming but seeing as his previous ones have been on that subject, I decided on something different. I cut 3 star shapes and made the largest one into the shaker part with foam tape, added the sequin mix and also stuck a small 14 in the top of the star.  Snippets of paper were added under the other 2  and a blue star also glued to the card.  The sentiment is a Gummiapan die cut a few times for a bit of depth.

I would like to enter this into:

Allsorts - Birthdays
Snippets Playground - snippets used were the sentiments and papers for the stars.
Penny's Paper-Crafty - Anything Goes
Incy Wincy Designs - Use a die cut or punch

It's a pretty dull day here, but means I can go and finish planting in the garden. I don't like it being too warm for that sort of work.  Whatever you're doing today have a good one and thank you for taking the time to visit.
