Cupcake Shaker Birthday Card

Hi crafty friends!

Today I am sharing a cute birthday card featuring the embellishment. I thought this cupcake screams "birthday," so I had to use it. If you would like to recreate this card, follow the tutorial below.

Grab your Mini Shaker Cupcake and patterned paper.

Adhere patterned paper to the back layer of the cupcake. I chose to use two different pages, so the top and bottom of the cupcake would differ. Note that when adding on the paper, be sure to fussy cut around the edges. The top of the cupcake does not have to be perfect on the back layer since the chipboard layers will cover the edges.

Next, add paper to one of the top cupcake layers. This will be the top of the cupcake. I then adhere the remaining cupcake outlines to the back layer.

I then adhere the cupcake onto my card base. I chose to use a faux stitched background panel layered on solid cardstock for my card panel. I then centered my cupcake on the panel and adhere.

Add the shaker bits inside.

With that dry and in place, I add on the clear layer -- removing the protective film, and add my top cupcake layer. From there I simply add a sentiment and embellish with sequins from the shaker mix. Now you have a quick and simple birthday shaker card.
