Happy Fri-Die everyone! I am Karen Hasheck and I am honored to be the CUTplorations Creative Cuts guest designer this spring! I am sharing three shaker birthday cards I made with CUTplorations dies and many other products from STAMPlorations. I love to make shaker cards and I show just how easy and fun they are to make in a new video you can watch here: https://youtu.be/64VnJyYM53M

RAWR means Happy Birthday in dinosaur, right? I show how to make this dinosaur shaker card in the video and here are the products I used:

Shaker Balloons #2 (Stars)
Fanfare Slimline Stencil
Dino Things Stamp Set


I combined my love of shakers and slimline cards to make this birthday celebration card for kids of all ages and here are the products I used:

On the inside of all the cards I used diecuts from the front that were too cute to toss and fun birthday sentiments from the Happy Happy Clear Stickers set as seen on this card:


My third shaker birthday card would be perfect for any birthday boy or girl and here are the products I used to make it: 

Gift Builder #2 Die Set
Big Robots Stamp Set

In the video I share tips on how to easily create wells around each opening so the beads and sequins can be in different colors and as well as tips on my favorite products to use to make shaker cards easy and fun to make. 

I had great fun making these cards and hope they inspire you to give shaker cards and these STAMPlorations products a try!
