What better way to celebrate a birthday than with a shaker card? They are just so fun to give and receive. You can fill a shaker card with so many embellishments. Let's take a look at a super easy shaker card. The hard part is already done for you.

The easiest way to make a shaker card is to have the layers already made for you. That's why I LOVE using the Queen & Co Foam Front Card Kit - Bubbles. It takes all the hard work out of making a fabulous shaker. I tend to make my shaker cards backwards so thank goodness for Queen and Co. They rescued me from a shaker card disaster.

To get started remove the backing on the foam panel and place it down on the card base.There is a backing on both sides of the foam.You only need to remove one right now. See how easy this is already. Insert happy face!

Now it's time to full up your shaker card with pretty embellishments. I love using colorful sequin in different size and colors. You can add sand if you're making a beach card or confetti if you're making a piñata card. Again go wild and have fun with the embellishments you use.

I traced the circles from the card front that was included in the kit onto a piece of designer paper so my card panel would have some a pretty plaid pattern. The card front is white so you can decorate it with stamps or add your own artwork. If you love the clean look of the white, all you need is a sentiment.

And what's a birthday card without a party hat and some balloons? I colored up my images with Copic markers. No need to shade coloring since the images are so small. Next I fussy cut the images with a pair of detail scissors so I could place them on my card panel.

I stamped a happy birthday sentiment on my panel so all that was left was to assemble my card. I can't tell you how easy it was to make this shaker card. Yup I'm going to be making these shaker cards a lot more since these kits make it so easy. I need to purchase a truck load now. LOL!
