Birthday Shaker

This is another of the projects that I created for the latest edition of Simply Cards & Papercraft. I was commissioned to create five masculine projects using the sunburst technique.

I used papers from the Dovecraft Back to Basics Blue Skies collection to create a shaker card.

I used my X-Cut Star Die to cut the shaker window and create a frame for it.

The sentiment banner is a DigiStamp Boutique stamp, I just wrapped it with some twine.

Thank you for visiting my blog today, your company is much appreciated.

Awesome look for a masculine shaker card. Especially love the way you did the background rays..makes me think of a cozy warm quilt...very serene with the shades & patterns of the blues radiating out behind the dark star! TFS & Happy Easter.
