Stars shaker card

Last week I made a special card for my good friend Katerina's husband's birthday. He is a real star and this is a one of those "round birthdays" :-) And so the perfect thing to do was make a star card! And to make it extra special, I also made it into a Shaker card :-)

The card base is Lost Lagoon card stamped with the little stars from the Be the Star stamp set. I love this set! It is so versatile! Next I used the Star framelits to create the layers - some Silver Foil card, the Hello Honey stripes from the Moonlight DSP stack, another stamped star from the same stamp set and then some Window sheet to create the Shaker. To line the stars up to cut the Base card I used a pencil to draw around the inside of the star to give a template to place the framelit. The Window sheet is cut twice - once for each side of the card as I wanted the window to show through to the message  - and is cut a little larger than the seen window.

The shaker stars were easy to create using the Confetti Stars Punch from the Holiday Mini Catalogue - so cool! Just punched a few stars from all three colours of card used :-) The Numbers are from the long retired "Timeless Type Alphabet sizzlit dies but still so handy!

And because of the hole all the way through from the front, the inside also needed a little finishing too :-)
