Shaker Card with Colored Acetate - MFT July Release Countdown Day 1

July 10, 2018

It's final day of the MFT July Release Countdown. All the new products that we've been showcasing this past five days will be available for purchase tomorrow at 9:00 pm EDT!

I have a fun shaker card to share with you today. 

The new Happy Birthday Balloon Trio Die-namics is great to make a quick birthday card since it cuts three balloons and a greeting at once with the perfect arrangement!
I started my card with die cutting a Smooth White panel using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Set 1 Die-namics then cut out the balloons and the greeting. 

I applied colored acetate sheets to the back of the balloons. They add colors to the balloons and you still see the pattern on the background panel. :) I applied double sided foam tape around the back of the balloons and to the back of the strings and the greeting. I cut off the strings from the cut-out pieces, colored them with a Copic Marker, and inlaid to the panel. I also cut the "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" from Brush Gold CS and inlaid. After putting in some shaker elements (Candy Sprinkles and Sparkling Clear Sequins), I covered the back of the panel with a piece of clear acetate

I cut and adhered striped patterned paper to the card front, and attached the shaker panel with double-sided tape. I made the tiny bows from bakers twine and added to the balloons to finish off the card.
