Flat Shaker Card - Happy Birthday

Hi crafters,

I have a flat shaker card for you today for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge which has a Happy Birthday theme this week.  This is only the second flat shaker card I've made and I've learned all the things not to do now!  

I started by cutting down some stamp packaging to create the pocket for the shaker elements.  I turned on my Spellbinders Glimmer Machine and hot foiled the frame in purple from the Spellbinders Geometric Floral Hot Foil Plates straight onto the plastic packaging.  For the inside of the card I used a piece of white cardstock and mopped up some leftover Cosmic Shimmer Pixie Powders from another project.  I embossed the panel using the Altenew Cupped Blossoms 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the plastic packaging around the embossed panel on three sides and then added sequins from Simon Says Stamp and Trimits in co-ordinating colours.  

I cut the sentiment using the Big Happy Birthday Wafer Dies from Simon Says Stamp in white cardstock and turquoise matte foil cardstock.  To finish the card I embellished using die cut butterflies in pearlescent vellum from the Butterfly Shimmer Wafer Dies by Simon Says Stamp.  

I would like to enter this card into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge:  Happy Birthday.

Happy crafting,
