AAA Birthday Cards Challenge April: Shaker card #60


Hello, this month the challenge prompt is shaker, I made a  shaker card, but I was thinking a cocktail shaker or wobbler also shakes, so....

I again made more than one card, that's the danger of having them done in plenty of time and then second guessing yourself ;-)

So for my second and final rendering: 

I cut this little die from Dutch Crafts it from black cardstock.

Matched the moon with a circle shaped die and diecut that into a panel.

Stamped the Happy Birthday (Whimsy Stamps Simple Sentiment Strips) with Versafine Black ink and let it dry

Built up the shaker part with acetate, 2 layers of foamtape and filled it with gold stars confetti, maybe a few too many, but I liked the idea of golden stars  behind the Moon as if it's space. Closed the shaker with the same black cardstock and adhered it to a cardbase.

For the first card:

I started by diecutting the cloud shapes into a card panel (Joy Crafts)

I Inkblended the cardbase in different  Blue Distress inks. Adhered acetate to the back for the cloud panel and  built the wells up with thick foamtape from Heffy Doodle and added the confetti, closing the shaker with the cardbase.

The Sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps and the image with dies is from MIntopia (Voy Volando), stamped it with Extreme black ink and colored it with Copic Markers, cout him out and adhered it to the card with foamtape.
