Birthday Slimline Shaker Card

Birthday Slimline Shaker Card

Hello Crafty Friends! It's Laurie here! Today I am sharing My Birthday Slimline Shaker Card as my Design Team Inspiration Card for Paper Nest Dolls using the Ragdoll Sally. Every year, my Hubby and I watch Nightmare Before Christmas for Halloween. It’s also my Hubby’s birthday on Thursday and I thought a birthday card with Ragdoll Sally would be perfect for him.

I had a lot of fun colouring this cutie with my Copic Markers! In fact, I coloured her skin in three different tones. So, I created a poll in The Paper Nest Dolls Inspiration Facebook Group on which skin tone was the most popular. It turned out that the green skin tone was the winner. So, I used her for my card.

Of course, I also coloured the others and created Halloween treat boxes with them which I plan to share later this week.

For my card, I decided to create not only a slimline card, but a shaker card with glow in the dark moons! So fun! I know my Hubby will get a kick out of it! I found this cool graphic on Etsy for Nightmare Before Christmas. So, I used my Silhouette Cameo to tweak it to fit my shape and then die cut it out. The moon paper was 6” x 6”, but since I only needed it for the top half of my card, I trimmed it down to fit.

The Happy Birthday sentiment was printed out on my computer using Word and the Viner Hand ITC font. I created a collage of different items around the sentiment including the glittery spider web and spider trinket. Don’t you love the pop of green that the mesh created at the bottom of the card to mirror her skin and the Lavinia moon paper!
