Birthday Party Shaker card with video tutorial
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "Party Time". This challenge lasts for TWO weeks!

Simon Says Stamp is celebrating diecember this month  and I've used the Flowing Vine Collage die from that release. I made a shaker card with it. With Faded Jeans, Chipped Sapphire and Ground Espresso Distress Ink I gave the background some color. The edges I've distressed with Black Soot Distress Crayon and along the edges I made some faux stitches using the Bo Bunny Stitches stamp set.

At the other side I glued a piece of acetate and I went with foam tape around the edges. For the background of the shaker I stamped a balloon of the Simon Says Stamp Birthday Balloons stamp set. And have it embossed with the Swiss Dots stencil. I gave it some color with Weatered Wood Distress Ink. I filled the shaker with Gold, Black and Silver Sequins, and with different colors Micro Beads.
