Birthday Shaker Card | Pink and Main - February Sneak Peek - "Berry Sweet"


I've got a cute birthday shaker card to share with you today and it's filled with tiny little honey bees! The upcoming Pink and Main February Release is so much fun and this new stamp set called "Berry Sweet" is soon to become one of my faves!

A top-folding A2 card base was trimmed with thin strips of striped paper on each side. The images were stamped, watercolored and die cut. The shaker was created with a honeycomb shape by die cutting a frame using the Nested Hexagon Dies. The hexagon was die cut from two different Pink and Main pattern papers and the small dotted paper from the "All Occasion Florals" Pad was glued onto a panel of 130# white card stock measuring 3.75" x 5.5". An acetate panel was attached to the back of and thin pieces of foam tape were added. Ten tiny bees (and yellow shaker bits) were piled onto the hex die cut and the frame was pressed into place on top. This panel was glued onto the card case.

The bear and bee hive were attached with foam tape. I heat embossed the sentiment from the "Spring Sentiments" Stamp Set and die cut it with the new "Fish Tail Sentiment Strip" 0.5" Width Die Set. I popped the sentiment up with foam tape and positioned it under the bear's foot to finish up the card! I just love all of the these bees flying around inside the shaker element! 

Thanks so much for stopping by today and for your comments! You can always find great inspiration on Pink and Main's Blog, Facebook and Instagram Pages!


Be safe and take care!

  4. Rachelle, this card is just adorable!!! I can't decide which is cuter... the bear or the tiny bees! And the use of a hexagon frame for the shaker is brilliant! Well done! I'm very glad you shared this with us at 2CCC and I hope to see you again in the entries!
