Happy Birthday - a Confetti Card

This week in class the project is to make 2 Confetti cards.

This is one of them.  I use Balloon Base, Crazy About You, and the DSP from the spring catalogue "Birthday Bash"

Today's shaker cards have been modified to place the shaker elements in a pouch that makes the card much more mailable.

The base card is Coastal Cabana layered with DSP "Birthday Bash" DSP.

The pouch was then created using 2 pieces of Window sheet taped on 3 sides using Washi tape.  I used retired tape.  The top is left open to add the shaker elements.

Using the Confetti Hearts Border punch, I punched pieces of Tangello Twist, Coastal Cabana, and Always Artichoke.  I also added some Gold sequins pulled off the thread (I saved 3 of them to put on the outside of the card.  Once I was satified I had enough confetti, the top of the pouch was sealed with another piece of Washi tape.

A piece of  3/8" stitched Tangello Twist satin ribbon was adhered on the left side of the pouch, and a bow placed at the top.

The pouch was now adhered to the DSP using tombo glue.

On a piece of Whisper White paper, the image from ":Balloon Bash" was stamped using Coastal Cabana ink. This was die cut using the Circles Framelits.  Using Coastal Cabana cardstock and the Starburst Framelit, a slightly starburst framelit was die cut to act as the mat.  The two were adhered together.
On a scrap piece of paper, the "#happy birthday" was coloured with a Tangello Twist marker, stamped on the Whisper White paper, cut out and placed over the Coastal Cabana one using small dimensionals.  This art piece was then adhered to the see through confetti pouch with dimensionals.

The sentiment, from "Crazy About You" was stamped using Basic Black ink onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock, and die cut using the Banners framelit. The edges were sponged with Coastal Cabana ink.  It wasthen attached to the top of the pouch at the level of the ribbon, and at an angle.

The remaining 3 sequins were added randomly to the top of the finished card.
