AAA Birthday Challenge #9


We begin the new year with a new monthly challenge over at AAA Birthday and this month we are celebrating birthdays with shaker cards:

I used our Whale of a Time stamp set and Scenic Borders stencil to create this card:

I simply inked through the wave border repeatedly on the card panel to create the watery effect and then die cut a heart from the top left corner.  I stamped and watercoloured the cute whale on a separate piece of card before cutting it out and I white heat embossed the sentiment on the dark blue card going on the bottom layer.  A bit of acetate and some sequins behind the window and the card was complete!

You have until 2 Feb to play along with is nice to get back to birthday cards after all of that festive cardmaking!  Check out the amazing designs from the talented DT over at AAA Birthday :)

Here are the products that I used in this card which are available from


Thanks for stopping by and happy cardmaking!
