Birthday Blowout!

Hi and welcome to my blog! I want to show you a birthday card I made using a Queen & Co. shaker card kit. I purchased some of these at a stamp show this summer and have just gotten around to using one. These are so much fun to make and the possibilities are endless.

I love using Color Bursts on birthday cards because they make the card look so festive! I punched out the balloon windows, used the template to trace the balloons on watercolor paper and cut them out so that I could lay my background over the windows and line them up properly. I had also bought the little polymer circles at the show to go into the windows. I added clear glitter and a little teal glitter in the windows also. I stamped the cute House Mouse stamp at the bottom, colored it with Spectrum Noir markers and added clear Stickles to the icing on the cupcake.

Here is a better picture showing the glitter.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a blessed day!

Gorgeous creation April - from the windows to the color burst background and of course the little mice image. Just so bright and cheery.

This is fun and it looks like confetti or sprinkles when you use the colorburst. I like that sentiment with the shaker card! Action!
