Birthday Queen

I love shaker cards, specially for birthdays. Girl from new Birthday Queen stamp set # 759 looks very whimsical. It's perfect for fun shaker card.
I used Flourishes 1 stamp set #516 to stamp the background with Versamark ink. Flourishes are heat embossed with Opaline Embossing Powder. It is clear EP with sudle shimmer - Love it! Background layer is inked with distress inks - Milled Lavender and Seedless Preserves. 

Image is stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and colored with alcohol base markers. I colored the hearts on her dress and her crown base with Sakura Glue Pen and covered with Galaxy Night glitter. Her shoes, hearts on the cupcake, wand and big hearts on her crown are covered with Dimensional Glue. This glue dries clear, shiny and dimensional. 

For the shaker I used MemoryBox Classic Upper Alphabet Set to die cut the word 'Queen' out of the background layer. I adhered Clear Embossable Acetate behind the word to keep the little pearls inside of the window.  Background layer in inside of the shaker is covered with 3/4" Double Sided "Tear-ific" Tape and Galaxy Night glitter. 

Edges of the matting layers are covered with 1/2" Double Sided "Tear-ific" Tape and Galaxy Night glitter. To add a little more bling I colored some Mon Ami Gabby Silver Diamond Mesh with green marker, cut the little diamonds away from the strings and adhered them to the card. I also added Dimensional Glue to the center of the diamonds and some dots was added all over to the card. They look like small waterdrops.

The word 'Birthday' is part of the 'Happy Birthday' sentiment. I inked only bottom of the stamp with Versamark ink to the strip of white cardstock. It was heat embossed with Black Detail  EP.
