Birthday Cupcake Shaker Card - PPPR dt

Happy Cinco de Mayo folks!!  Today is my day to post for Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons and I have a birthday card to share with you that I made for my oldest daughter's birthday last week.  I decided to be fancy and make a shaker card too since it is for a special person :-)

I used the cupcake from the PPPR Birthday Critters Cutting files for my cupcake.  I created an offset and welded it to my "window" frame.  I attached acetate to the back of that and then put foam tape all around the edges of the frame.  I sprinkled in some micro beads and sequins and then attached my card base to my window frame.  I used a very heavy white cardstock for my card base so that it would hold the weight of the window frame better.  I finished my card off with some 3 Girl JAM "Baby Girl" crinkle ribbon and a sentiment from the "Make a Wish" set from Cardz TV Stamps.  The enamel dots are homemade from perler beads I melted and I blinged up the flame of the candle with diamond stickles.


  1. Great cupcake cut and shaker...I love shakers for Birthdays. Cute bow on the candle and I like the dots paper with the sequins. Great job on your card and I like the homemade dots. Will any plastic beads work?
