Purple Birthday Shaker Card

by - 5:48 PM

 You're all invited to a purple themed party!

A little friend of my daughter celebrated her 4th birthday recently and, since she loves purple, I decide to make her an extra purple shaker card that she could eventually re-use in her bedroom as a sort of name plate.

I started by stamping the Mama Elephant Birthday Bash with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored it using BV00s and V10s Copic Markers and, after I die cut it with the coordinating dies, I added many details with a white gel pen. I also stamped the little girl's name using the Mama Elephant Color Me Letters stamp set, I colored them with V10s Copics and fussy cut them.

I created the background with Distress Oxide Milled Lavender, Shaded Lilac and Seedless Preserves using the ink smooshing technique. That was so much fun! I die cut it with the Mama Elephant Framed Tags Madison Avenue die and glued some acetate behind the outer frame, then I added two layers of foam tape. At this point I had the idea of turning the card into a "plate" so I made two little cuts on the top part of the foam and insert a piece of Doodlebug Design Lilac twine (you can spot it inside the shaker if you look closely).

I glued the inner part of the background to a piece of thick cardstock and added the name with some foam tape, then I filled the shaker with Little Things from Lucy's Card Sweet Lilac sequins mix and put the background and the frame together. At this point I added all the colored pieces on top of the shaker base using foam tape. The sentiment comes from the Moda Scrap Solo per Dirti stamp set and was stamped using Versacolor Heliotrope ink.

For the back of the card, I used a piece of the inked panel and I added a outer frame colored with Distress Oxide Milled Lavender, then I glued them behind the front panel.

I'm using this card for entering  Simon Says Wednesday Challenge.
