March Birthdays are the Best!

My birthday is coming up the end of this week, and then my adorable granddaughter is turning 4 the week after that.  Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge is Anything Goes, and using their stamps.  What better set to use than my Simon Says Stamp Birthday stamp set from last year to make my granddaughter a birthday card.  She does love my shaker cards so I used Simon Says Stamp Drifting Stitched Circles to cut the circles for the shaker bits.  I believe this is a retired die as I don’t see it available anymore.

Then I ran a strip of acetate down through the cutouts and put some foam adhesives around the circles to catch the colorful seed beads.  Note:  do not make your shaker card with the foam BEFORE you stamp.  Lesson learned – so I stamped on some grey cardstock and cut the little birthday elephant out.  Her favorite colors are pink and purple so I had to work some purple in there.  The stamps are from my Simon Says Stamp exclusive birthday stamp set.  When you sign up for an account and give them your birthday, they will send an email giving you a code for the current Birthday stamp.  I will be getting the new one for sure.

My granddaughter will be excited to get this card – she just loves when I send shaker cards, and pink and purple.  She has started making her own little cards after I spent a day babysitting her and we did cards.  So I give her all kinds of extra (less expensive) card stock, envelopes, and wood stamps to play with.
