Virgo Birthday Shaker Card

HI! Today is my day to post for the Digital Delights by Louby Loo New Release. I used the "Virgo Zodiac," "Happy Birthday Sentiment," and the "Zodiac Paper Pack" to make my shaker card. 


DD files used:
 Happy Birthday Sentiment:

Cardstock / Papers:   DD Zodiac Paper Pack, Glitter cardstock in     white and fushia, yellow cardstock, image printed on Spectrum Noir cardstock by Crafter's Companion

Markers: Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers, Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Pen

Accec./ Embellishments: 3 small silk flowers, 3-d butterfly by K & Co., beads &/or confetti for shaker, 5 by 7 piece of clear acetate, foam tape

Technique: I used my Cricut Explore to print out the image and sentiment. The image is about 2 1/2 inches tall and the sentiment is about 2 inches long. The finished card is 5 by 7 inches. I folded a 10 by 7 inch piece of yellow cardstock in half for the card base. I printed off a sheet of the Virgo paper from the Zodiac Paper Pack, then trimmed it to 4 3/4 by 6 3/4 inches and added it to the front of the card. I made a two color frame 4 3/4 by 6 3/4 inches using a file from design space. To make the shaker element, I put foam tape around the inside edges of the frame, added the acetate window, then attached it to the front of the card leaving a small opening to add the confetti. Add your confetti and seal the opening closed. Add your sentiment to the top left and the butterfly to the top right. Attach the silk flowers by the image.
