I started my card with a white card base cutting it to 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scoring it at 4 1/4" giving me a standard A2 sized card.
I then used the beautiful Spellbinders Labels Seventeen die for the front window on my card.
On the same white cardstock, I stamped my Penny Black image, Cake and wishes (currently on sale) using Tuxedo Black by Memento.
I used my Tim Holtz Distress Markers to color in my image (colors listed here).
I cut out three balloons (design # listed below) from my Silhouette Cameo from green, red, and blue. I used a little crochet twine for the string, adhering them to a piece of patterned paper that will sit inside of my window.
To my transparency window, I used Black Staz-On ink and stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the stamp set. Here's a hint: if you're not happy with the stamped image, or it get's smeared, use a little rubbing alcohol, and a paper towel to remove it and start over.
Once I was happy with the placement, I added a little bit of glitter, and colored confetti to the inside of my window, then adhered my patterned paper to the top of that.
I decided it needed more color to the front of the card. I again used the Spellbinders Labels Seventeen dies. The largest and second largest, taping them down to my yellow patterned paper, and running it through my Big Shot. This gave me a perfect frame to fit the outside of my window.
I hope you've enjoyed today's project. Shaker cards are so much fun to make!
