Happiest of birthdays to Pretty Pink Posh! Its so wonderful when nice people, who work hard, have success! That's why I am so honored to be helping Paulina celebrate such a fun milestone! Here is to many, many more birthday celebrations!!
First of all, when you have gorgeous sequins, you HAVE to make a shaker card! So I knew that the new dies from Pretty Pink Posh, Scallop Frames, would make an amazing background. I love the scallops on the inside. It makes for an adorable frame. The stitching lines around the outside edge finish it off perfectly. I cut the frame die twice from Sweet Tooth card stock. On the first Pretty Pink Posh Scallop Frame, I adhered a piece of acetate. Then added foam tape around the outside edge of the second Pretty Pink Posh Scallop Frame. I layered the two together to create the front of the shaker.
As I was thinking about what to put on this large shaker background, I looked at the die set,
Pretty Pink Posh Twine and Bows. To me, they looked like the strings on balloons, and this birthday card was born! To the Pretty Pink Posh Twine and Bows I added die cut and stamped balloons. I adhered them directly to the top layer of the shaker.
On the card base, I inked an ombre background of Summer Splash ink. Then I placed a mix of sequins on the card base. I used most of the sequins from the Pretty Pink Posh Share Kindness mix. I pulled the lovely green ones out to fit my color palette.
Side note, the Pretty Pink Posh Share Kindness mix is a special one as all the sales from the set will go to the Kind Campaign during the month of January. Love that!
Looking at the dies, Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Tabs, I thought of making a shaker file folder. Top secret and all. :D
To create the file folder, I die cut a card base of In the Buff card stock with one of the borders from Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Tabs. Then, using a score tool, I created a larger base, one that would hold my shaker on the inside. Its about 1/4 of an inch thick. If you want to make one of these yourself, place your foam tape inside the file folder and measure for the exact scoring size.
Pretty Pink Posh Twine and Bows was the perfect way to "close" the folder too! I cut Electric Red card stock with the dies. Then I adhered the strings around the top and bottom to add more realism.
For the inside, I again cut Pretty Pink Posh Scallop Frames, added acetate and foam to the back. (Be sure and do it in that order, I may or may not have done it wrong, once or twice...)
On the file, after stamping the sentiment, I added die cut letters and hearts along with the very cool Pretty Pink Posh Droplets! I used the 4mm Droplets inside this shaker. I love them! I have many plans for these clear, raised, spots! The shaker top was then adhered to the center of the file folder.
