This first card is an infinity shaker card! The new A2 Infinity Shaker panels fit around a 4" x 5.25" card panel and you can fill them with flat style shaker fillings. It's a great way to create a shaker card that isn't as bulky and thick as typical shaker cards are, plus your shaker fillings can move all the way to the edge of your cards!

I stamped a Sugar Cube card panel with the Let's Celebrate You stamp from the kit by inking it up in multiple colors (Guava, Candy Corn, Lemon Meringue, Key Lime, Cookie Monster, and Plum Punch) using mini ink cubes. The A2 Infinity Shaker Panel is wrapped around it by folding three of the tabs around to the back and securing them with a strong, sticky tape. I filled the shaker with Snow Flurries sequins and confetti that I cut out with the Confetti Maker die from Lemon Meringue, Key Lime, Cookie Monster, and Plum Punch cardstock.  The remaining tab is secured to the back of the panel to close up the shaker.


I added a Cookie Monster frame to the front of the panel that is cut out with the A2 Thin Frame Cutting Plate die along with the 'make a wish' sentiment strip from the Mini Strips - Let's Celebrate stamp and a few extra pieces of confetti to finish things off.



This next card is a typical style shaker card. I created the shaker element using a Cookie Monster frame cut out with a Stiched Frame Stacklets 1 die. I backed the frame with a Foil It Acetate - Let's Celebrate You panel that I foiled with Gold Shattered Glass Deco Foil in my Minc machine. I added the frame with foam sticky strips to a background panel that I stenciled with the confetti background from the Create-in-Quads Birthday Layering Stencil set. The background is stenciled on Toffee cardstock, laying down a layer of Sugar Cube ink first and then adding the ink colors over the top: Lollipop, Candy Corn, Lemon Meringue, Key Lime, Cookie Monster, and Plum Punch.


The shaker card is filled with Shaker Dots from the kit and then on the front of the shaker I added a few confetti stars along with few sentiment strips from the Mini Strips - Let's Celebrate stamp. The sentiments are embossed in white on Cookie Monster cardstock and cut out with the new Mini Strips - Flags die.
