Birthday Bears Shaker card featuring My Favorite Things

Hi again!!

Happy Friday!!
Hope you all had a lovely week and have some lovely plans for this week! It's a long weekend so I'm hoping to get some well needed crafty time!
Stopping by quickly to share a fun shaker card using the adorable Birthday Bears set from My Favorite Things. I've actually made a few cards with this set recently so you will seeing it again soon;)

I once again did some watercoloring with my Zig clean color markers. I just love the vibrant look it gives. So I started off with water colored paper and colored in the grass. I start my laying down my color and then going in with my water brush to move it around. The dark green top part of the grass was a total mistake . I simply did a darker green line but once I added water it just went everywhere but ended up making an awesome grass looking affect ( I love happy mistakes) 
Anyhow, I colored my banner and balloon and then moved onto my bears which I stamped on separate pieces and fussy cut out to adhere on the card. I die cut the white fence using the Picket Fence by from Pretty Pink Posh. Once I had added my sentiment I was done this panel. I added some thin pieces of foam tape to the side, filled with my sequins also from Pretty Pink Posh and closed off with some vellum. I created the polka dot frame from some pattern paper I had in my stash.

I love the way the card turned out, however I have learned that it is probably best to have a one layer panel when making shaker cards because my sequins were getting stuck under my little bears no matter how flat I glued them down, Oh well, I will know for next time!:)
Hope you enjoyed.
Thank you so much for stopping by!!
Happy Friday and have a lovely weekend!!



  1. LOVE! You are doing wonders with the zig pens, and i love happy mistakes too :) My sequins sometimes stick to my acetate i think i saw somewhere that using a anti static powder like if you were embossing can stop it but haven't tried it yet.
