Under the Sea Shaker Birthday Card

Hi Everyone!

So excited to share with you this fun Under the Sea Shaker Birthday Card I made for my little niece Olivia who turned 5 this past weekend. 

If you have been a follower of my blog you will know that I have recently become obsessed with card making especially shaker cards! They are so fun and interactive and if 
adults love them, I'm sure kids will love them even more!

I knew the birthday was going to be a mermaid theme but since I really didn't have any mermaid stamps, I decided to use my silhouette and cut and piece some cute Tropical Friend SVGs from SVGCuts. To the little mermaid and the rest of the sea animals I addded some details by drawing with a fine sharpie pen. To all their eyes I added tiny drops of glossy accents to make them pop and give them some life.

For the ocean background I smooshed some distress inks (peacock feathers and salty ocean) onto some Canson watercolor paper. I also added some clear droplets to create the illusion of bubbles. The border die I used comes from My Favorite Things (Wonky Stiched Rectangles Stax). The stamp sentiment comes from Your Next Stamp (Snorkel Fun Fishy) stamped onto the Everyday Sentiment banners die from Lawn Fawn.  For the shaker mix I used clear sparkly sequins from Pretty Pink Posh, Martha Stewart Glitter, and Recollections Microbeads.

Here is closer look at all the details!

On the inside of the card I stamped another sentiment from Your Next Stamp (Snorkel Fun Fishy).

I hope you like my Under the Sea Shaker Birthday Card and got some inspiration to make your own!
