Good morning & welcome to another "My Creative Time: 48 Hour Flash Sale!" This sale is for 48 hours ONLY that is going on right NOW & will end on Sunday, June 5, 2016 @ 7am PST.  For this sale, we are all featuring a brand new die set called "Stitched Large Balloon Dies".  When I released my "Circle Balloon Dies" last month, I had gotten LOTS of requests for a large traditional shaped balloon die as well!  So....here ya go my friends! :) This is SUCH A FUN set & I cannot wait for you to see all the projects the team has created using it! Don't forget to use the code FLASH at checkout to get 20% off of your entire "in-stock" only purchase! 

If you have made it here from Miss Brigit's wonderful blog, then you are in the right place. If you have just stopped by or have gotten lost along the way, please head on over to Miss Emma's blog for the full hop order. 


I decided to create a simple shaker card using these fun new Stitched Larger Balloon Dies. I first cut out 3 of the largest balloons in blue card stock, hot pink card stock, and acetate paper. I then used the largest oval from the Scalloped Stitched Oval Dies to cut a window in the hot pink balloon die cut. Then I cut the card base out by folding a piece of white card stock and then cutting it once again with the largest balloon die.  

I first stamped on the "happy birthday" sentiment from the Script Words Stamps onto the blue balloon die cut before I created the shaker. I glued the acetate paper onto the pink window piece. Then I added the fun balloon birthday confetti to the center of the blue balloon die cut and then glued the pink acetate balloon window on top of it. 

Once it had dried, I tied the matching pink twine onto the balloon and embellished the bow with another little blue confetti circle. Then I attached the shaker onto the card base that I had cut out earlier. A simple and easy shaker card to celebrate someone special!
