The "CUE THE CONFETTI" sentiment in the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set was the inspiration for this bright and fun Birthday shaker card...

The 'confetti' inside the shaker window is actually snipped pieces of the dark pink, white and silver Sweet Soirée Ready Shreddie.  They shake and move nicely and really do give a great confetti-effect!  I have also used pieces of the Sweet Soirée Ready Shreddie as streamers, tucked in behind the words.  This fabulous product is not just for filling gift bags and boxes with fun crinkle-cut shredded paper.

And check out those noise-makers - what fun!  What do you called them... noise-makers, party horns, blowers, parental headaches?

But the fun doesn't stop there.  Can you see a hint of the Picture Perfect Party Designer Series Paper through the shaker window?  It looks really fabulous back there but I didn't want to hide away the lovely photographed images, so watch this...

And this!

Picture Perfect Birthday Shaker Card

That's right... It's a double-opening shaker card!  Great for a bit of wow, plus you can show off the pretty designer paper and more fabulous stamping.  I love the Picture Perfect Party Suite - the colours and designs are perfect for both feminine and masculine birthday cards, and great for all ages.

This shaker card was one of the projects we created at the February Creative Stamping Workshops (after all, you can't have too many birthday cards on hand).  Afterwards, I created a whole lot more of these cards to share and swap with fellow demonstrators at this weekend's Stamp Camp.  I can't wait to have a whole weekend away with like-minded people, soaking up the inspiration, with lots of time-out to be creative.  Keep an eye out on the Creative Stamping Facebook Page over the weekend to see some of what we get up to.
