Clean and Simple Shaker with TSM Hip Hip Hooray

The stamp market hip hip hooray shaker card

I’ve had some fun playing with The Stamp Market’s Hip Hip Hooray stamps and dies. At first glance it’s a basic set but there is so much you can do with it. I have a couple more cards that I will post individually. This first one is a simple shaker card that I think is very classy and can be gender neutral depending on the shaker bits.

The first thing I did was cut the front panel from Neenah Solar White 80lb cardstock with the largest die from MFT’s stitched rectangle dies-Set 1. To make the cut-outs I used the candle die. I used a pencil and ruler to mark the center point for the center candle and then marked at .75″ intervals for the other four candles.

I stamped the “happy” and “birthday” and die cut them with the coordinating dies and then die cut the same words from gold glitter paper. I glued the stamped pieces on top of the gold ones with a little offset to create sort of a drop shadow.

I also die cut the candle flames out of gold glitter paper and glued them above the candles. I used Scotch Double-Sided Foam Tape for my shaker. It’s still my favorite foam tape. I filled the shaker with some old Stampin’ Up! sequins from my stash. I mounted my shaker onto a card base made from Lawn Fawn Black Licorice card stock. I really like the weight of this 100lb cardstock.

That’s it for today. I think this is about as simple a card as I can make. I hope you like it and look out for the next two cards which are totally different. Thanks for stopping by!
