Under the Sea Birthday Shaker Card

Shaker cards seem to be growing ever popular, so today’s project is a 6″ x 6″ shaker card I made with paper from the Heartfelt Creations Under The Sea collection and Queen and Company’s Pop Ups Circle Shaker set.

These Pop Ups shaker sets are great because not only do they include the pop-up foam frames in several sizes, but transparency and card stock back pieces in matching sizes!

I cut a 5-3/4″ x 5-3/4″ piece of paper from the Under The Sea collection and adhered it to my card front.

Next, without removing the protective covering from the adhesive, I placed the largest foam frame from the Pop Ups shaker set over the scene I had chosen from the Under The Sea paper pad and traced around it with a pencil. I cut this out and adhered it to my card front, then I removed the adhesive covering from one side of the foam frame and placed it over my scene.

I glued 3 silver heart sequins next to the sea horses, then added various beads and other sequins within the framed area.  After removing the protective covering from the top of the foam frame, I placed the largest transparency from the Pop Ups shaker set over it.

Using the largest die from Queen and Company’s Pop Up Circles Dies, I cut a frame from blue card stock and glued this on the top of the transparency piece. I cut out one of the Under The Sea turtles and glued that to the top of my shaker element.  Next I glued heart and star sequins in the corners.

I felt the card was just missing something yet, so I added three flowers made from the Heartfelt Creations Wildwood Cottage collection.  I colored them with Distress inks and added Krystallos Shard Glass Glitter to the edges and Frantage Fuchsia Glass Glitter to the centers.

The inside of the card features a sea horse, beta fish and coral border I cut from the Under The Sea paper.  (This collection has dies to match these and other elements in the paper, making cutting them out a breeze!)  I also chose a couple of word tags from the paper pack and adhered all of these elements onto another 5-3/4″ x 5-3/4″ piece of Under The Sea paper.

I cut down one of the 6″ x 6″ scenes to 5-3/4″ x 5-3/4″ then glued it to the back of the card. The text is from the Gina K. Designs By the Sea stamp set, and it was stamped in Peacock Feathers Distressed Ink. I finished the card with a small Under The Sea ticket tag near the bottom.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card and have fun making a shaker card of your own!
