Today I'm sharing a shaker style card I recently put together for a dear friend's birthday using several cute stamps from my favorite local stamp company, Dandelion Designs.
This adorable pair of kimono girls come from Dandelion Designs "Friends Set". I used Copics to color them and paper pieced their kimonos from washi papers.
For the panel in the shaker, I added a smidge of blended colors using distress oxide inks applied with foundation brushes. Stamped sentiment is from "Sakura Girls Set", also from Dandelion Designs. Clear acetate was adhered to the window frame with double stick tape. I used foam tape behind the window to create the shaker box and added a mix of clear sequins and flower shaped clay polymer embellishments inside.
As the card is opened, two birthday kimono girls pop up with birthday wishes!
This was a fun pop up and fairly easy to install. I especially like how the pop up elements are lifted to stand almost perpendicular to the inside of the card. Many more fun ideas come to mind with this mechanism which I hope to try soon!
