Teddy Bear Picnic Birthday Shaker Card


Hi everyone,

It's my turn to post a tutorial on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog today for the Coloring Design Team. Shaker Card can be so much fun to create so I decided to create one using Krista Schneider's Teddy Bear Picnic Clear Stamp set with coordinating dies.


Here is how I created my card:



Step 1 -
Create a square base card using Perfect Purple Soft Finish Cardstock that measures 5 1/2 inches square when folded.
  • Use ModaScrap designer paper to die cut a square using the largest square from the Fitted Squares die set.
  • Using the Rosebud Soft Finish Cardstock, die cut a square using the largest square from the Stitched Square die set.
  • Layer the two together and adhere to the front of the folded card.

Step 2 -
Using the Stitched Fishtails die set, place the fifth largest fishtail inside the third largest fishtail so that it is evenly spaced. Place removable tape to secure dies together so you can cut frames.
  • Using the fishtail frame we created above, die cut the following:
  • (1) x Purple Paw Print ModaScrap Designer paper
  • (1) x White Soft Finish Cardstock
  • (1) x White Fun Foam which has Clear Double Sided Adhesive on the back
Using the third largest fishtail from the Stitched Fishtails die set, die cut the following:
  • (1) x Pink Stripe ModaScrap Designer Paper
  • (1) x White Soft Finish Cardstock
Using the third largest fishtail from the Fitted Fishtails die set, die cut one from clear acetate.



Step 3 - Assembling the shaker

  • Layer the Paw Print ModaScrap Designer paper fishtail frame to the White Soft Finish Cardstock Fishtail Frame.
  • Adhere the acetate fishtail to the back of the white fishtail frame.
  • Position the small Pink Stripe ModaScrap Designer Paper to the centre of the White Soft Finish Cardstock fishtail. (TIP: Place the fun foam fishtail frame over the white cardstock and use this as a guide as to where to place the designer paper.
  • Die cut the word "Happy" from the Happy Birthday die set from Rosebud Soft Finish Cardstock that has Clear Double Sided Adhesive on the back. Place the sentiment towards the top of the pink striped designer paper.
  • Use a copic marker to color the edges of the fun foam frame, then adhere this to the top of the fishtail base card.
  • Place sequins in the colors of your choice to the centre of the fishtail frame.
  • Place the acetate/designer paper frame to the top of the fun foam frame to complete the shaker card.

Step 4 - 
  • Using the middle die from the Stitched Fishtail Banners die set, die cut two from Rosebud Soft Finish Cardstock and one from Perfect Purple Soft Finish Cardstock.
  • Using the small "Happy Birthday" sentiment from the Steampunk Clear Stamp set, mask off all the words other than "Birthday using masking tape or post it notes and ink the birthday onto one of the pink fishtail banners. (Tip: Make sure you remove the masking tape or post it note after you have inked up the stamp and before you stamp the sentiment onto the cardstock.
  • Adhere the fishtail banners to the bottom of the shaker piece using photo above as a guide.

Step 5 -
Using the Teddy Bear Picnic Clear Stamp set, stamp the Teddy Bears and two balloons onto White Soft Finish Cardstock using black ink. Die cut images using coordinating dies. 
  • Using the balloon from the Bird-day Party Clear Stamp set, stamp the balloon onto White Soft Finish Cardstock using black ink. Die cut image using coordinating die.
  • Color all images
  • Adhere the images to the card using photo above as a guide.

Step 6 - The Inside of Card:

Using the fifth largest Fitted Fishtail die, die cut a fishtail using the designer paper piece that came from the centre of the Paw Print Designer Paper Fishtail Frame on the front of the card.
  • Stamp the 'Happy Birthday' from the Occasions Clear Stamp set to the centre of this fishtail using black ink.
  • Use the fifth largest die from the Stitched Fishtails die set to cut a fishtail from Perfect Purple Soft Finish Cardstock.
  • Layer the two together and adhere to the top left hand side of the card.
Step 7 -
Using the Teddy Bear Picnic Clear Stamp set, stamp the tiny bear onto White Soft Finish Cardstock using black ink. Die cut image using coordinating die.
  • Using the Bird-day Party Clear Stamp set, stamp the birthday cake onto White Soft Finish Cardstock using black ink. Die cut image using coordinating die.
  • Color images and adhere to the lower right hand side of card.
