A Beary Special Birthday!

Hi Lovelies....

I'm back with another 'just for fun' card...  I fell in love with the gorgeous little bears released by MFT last week..  and treated myself to the stamp set, and also to the Dienamics Happy Birthday to You die (ok, yeah yeah, amongst other things!)  Of course, I reached for my PINK...  and had a play!

I made a shaker card with acetate behind the diecut words..  sprinkling sequins and seed beads into the shaker space.... then took my life in my hands by adding the pink larger square and HOPING to get it straight!  With hindsight, I'd have been better to add a second lot of acetate or even pink card to seal the shaker bit - BEFORE adding it to the larger pink square.  Ah well, it worked this time but I'll know better next time! LOL!

Materials Used:
MFT Beary Special Birthday
MFT Dienamics Happy Birthday to You
Sequins and Beads from stash
Colouring - Copics
Bear - E50/52/53/55/57, R20
Cake E40/42/43
Icing - R81/83

I did uhhm and ahhhh as to whether to add the sequins to the white space, and eventually decided to go with it...  I THINK I made the right decision...  what do you think?

I promise it does look better in real life (like most cards do), and the shaker rattle is fab.  I think you'll be seeing more of these little bears in the near future..  maybe less jaundiced looking.... hehe!

Big hugs...

  8. Hi Christine, this is beautiful. I love shaker cards and your's is really striking. Such a clever design and that little bear gorgeous - exquisitely coloured. This is perfect.

  9. I also fell in love with these bears as soon a I saw them but they haven't come to live with me...yet!
    What a fabulous idea to put a shaker behind the die cut looks lovely and it's all so pink and sparkly...scrummy!
