Super Hero Father's Day Shakers Cards

I Just finished up some Father's Day cards for the special Dad's in my life! I'm excited to give them away tomorrow! (And I think I'm completely addicted to shaker cards now. I rarely make a card that isn't a shaker anymore, shakers are just too much fun!) 







This card was fast and easy thanks to Queen and Company's Sunburst Foam Card Kit. You just expose the adhesive on the foam, stick it down to the front of our cad, then fill it with any of their awesome toppings. I filled this one with blue Bubbles, Diamonds, and Fimo stars. The top of the foam is also self adhesive and the kit includes an acetate cover that you just stick down on top. So simple! 

I added a die cut banner and star as well ass some foam letters to spell out "DAD." Additionally I embellished the front of the shaker with some red Lollies, red and blue Pearls, and white and blue Pinwheels. 


This "Super Dad" card was created by using the diamond cut from the Cricut Once Upon A Princess cartridge and layering two different sized diamonds together to create a frame. Then I cut out the shape 10 times and glued each layer together to get enough height for the shaker. Inside the shaker are more blue Bubbles and some lighter blue Diamonds. It's fun to watch them roll around in there as you move the card!




Again, there are some red Lollies, red and blue Pearls, red Twine, and Fimo Stars as embellishments outside the shaker.





Hopefully the super guys in my live will love them!


Thanks for visiting and Happy Father's Day!

Birthday Card Eye Candy

Another new kit that I contributed to with a patterned paper pad and stamp set launched recently! It's the Pretty Presents Kit by Queen and Company, which is just perfect for any gift giving occasion from birthday to wedding and everything in between! The cute little present dies can be used on their own or to make these incredibly cute shaker embellishments. The kit includes adorable fake sprinkles and tiny gift bows in different colors for a really cute and unique look inside your shakers!






I envisioned making lots of birthday cards when I designed the papers for the Pretty Presents Kit! This card is possibly my favorite card I've made with the kit so far. In addition to the cute shaker supplies from the kit I added some Opals and Lollies to up the "candy" look I was going for.





I'm excited to share more of my projects with this kit in the coming days!

Thanks for stopping by!
