Create A Smile | Birthday Shaker

Hello there, sorry I haven't been around for a little while again but I am back today sharing my first card and video for the new Create A Smile Video Design Team :) I have made a shaker card but wanted to keep it quite flat so I have used small beads as the shaker material.

The fox, from the Cool Buddies set, was stamped, coloured with Copic markers and then fussy cut out. I stamped the speech bubble from the Penguin Party and added the Happy Birthday sentiment (from the same set) inside. This was also fussy cut out. I set these aside while I worked on the shaker portion of the card. I partially die cut a SSS Stitched Circle on to a panel of white cardstock and cut along the bottom edge with my craft knife to make a window.

I then added acetate to the back followed by tons of foam tape. The beads were added inside and then a piece of patterned paper from the Doodlebug Frosty Friends Collection added on top for the background. The panel was adhered to an A2 card base and the fox and sentiment added with clear foam tape. I finished off the card with some Doodlebug Sprinkles and a little Glossy Accents to the foxes nose.
Here is the video:

I am sure you have already heard of Create A Smile Stamps but if you haven't, they are a company based in Germany and they sell the cutest little stamps. They have also just released gorgeous new patterned paper, washi tape and flair. Thanks so much for visiting me today, I really do appreciate it :)
