Birthday Shaker for GDP004

We are back with another challenge from the Global Design Project. Challenge #GDP004 is a CASE (Copy and Share Everything) challenge inspired by one of our Design Team member’s cards. How fun is that? This week’s featured Design Team Member is Louise Sharp from Australia and here’s the card we are CASEing:
Global Design Project GDP004

When CASEing a card, you may choose to use the layout, theme or color scheme for inspiration. I chose to CASE the layout. Here’s my card:

Birthday Shaker Card for GDP004

As you can see, I flipped the layout upside down and added my sentiment in a banner. I loved the addition of a heart in Louise’s design, so I included it in the balloon. All the sequins can be shaken, but the heart stays put; right in the center.

I hope you join us at Global Design Project and play along with this week’s challenge. Check out what our other Design Team members came up with for inspiration too.


Today I included items available from the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog: Celebrate Today Photopolymer Stamp Set and Balloon Framelits dies (available in a bundle). The Gold Cording Trim is available in the Holiday Catalog.
