This fun Birthday Shaker Card can use any patterned paper or stamps to fit what the Birthday Girl or Boy (Woman or Man) likes. I used the Tasty Treat paper along with the Cool Treat Bundle. You can choose sequins or small punched shapes to shake in your card.

1. Cut your Flirty Flamingo card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″.
2. Choose the two Framelits you will use as your cut out and frame.
3. Cut your Card front pieces:
~Whisper White at 4″ x 5-1/4″.
~Patterned Paper at 4″ x 5-1/4″. Cut out the window using the smaller Framelit.
~Window Sheet at 3-3/4″ x 5″
~Flirty Flamingo Window Frame: Put both Framelits on the card stock on your Big Shot Platform. Make sure the card stock showing between them is even. Cut.
~Stamp your Ice Cream with Flirty Flamingo ink on Whisper White card stock with the solid Ice Cream stamps. Stamp the Ice Cream layers with Watermelon Wonder ink on the solid Ice Cream piece. Cut out with the coordinating Ice Cream Framelit.
~Cut out both the solid and the detailed Thinlit Ice Cream cone pieces from Crumb Cake card stock. Attach together with Tombow Glue and sponge wedge on your Silicone Craft Sheet. Glue the Ice Cream to the top.
~Stamp Happiest Birthday or other words in Watermelon Wonder ink on a Whisper White card stock strip. Punch the end with the Banner Triple Punch.
4. Assemble Card Front.
~Glue the Flirty Flamingo Frame around the Window on your patterned paper using Tombow Glue because it has a little wiggle room so you can use your fingers in the window hole to line up both pieces.
~Glue the Window Sheet on the back of the card front. You just need glue around the edges of the Window Sheet.
~Attach the Happiest Birthday Banner with the adhesive of your choice.
~Attach the Ice Cream Cone with half Stampin’ Dimensionals
5. Make the Shaker Card.
~Put your Foam Adhesive strips on the back of your card front within about 1/4″ from the window cut-out making sure there are no small gaps for your Sprinkles to escape through. Rub the part of the Foam Adhesive Strip that is in the center where the sprinkles will be with your Embossing Buddy to remove all the sticky from the sides. This will help prevent your Sprinkles from sticking to the Foam. If you look closely, you can see I forgot this step.
~Also put some Foam Adhesive Strips about 1/4″ from the edge of the back side of the card front.
~Optional: Line up the Whisper White 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece with the completed card front to get an idea of where to place some of the Sprinkles with Glue Dots. Attach a few Sprinkles on the Whisper White piece with Glue Dots. Cut away the excess Glue Dot that sticks out beyone the Sprinkle if you want a smaller glob of Sprinkles to collect on the Glue Dot. I just left the Glue Dot as is of all but one of the added Sprinkles.
~Put the desired amount of Sprinkles on the back of the card front inside the Foam Window. Match up the sides of the Whisper White piece and the card front and attach.
~Attach your Shaker card front to your card base.
