Beautiful Birthday Shaker Card

Hello and welcome to my contribution to the 

For my project, I have chosen to make this cute shaker birthday card!

Before we get started on the detail, here is a list of supplies that I've used:

To begin, I added a few star sequins directly to the sticky part of the Keepsake Envelope.

Next I sprinkled some round sequins inside of the pocket.

I used the Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4" to close up the pocket.

I cut a piece of patterned paper the same size as the pocket and mounted it to the sticky back of the pocket.  

After die-cutting the dress bottom from patterned paper, it was pleated along the score lines and then attached to the front of the girl with the Dual Tip Glue Pen.

A square frame was die cut from cardstock and placed around the pocket with Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4".  

To mount the framed pocket to the card, I used black Crafty Foam Tape.  

For the birthday girl, after stamping the image onto watercolor page with black Staz-On pink, I colored her in with watercolor pencils.  The sentiment was stamped onto patterned paper and then punched out with an oval punch.

I added more decorative elements by die-cutting two of the banners from Kelly's Flags Stamp & Cut.  

Here you can see all of the yummy, 3-D layers!
