Birthday Shakercard feat. Adorable Elephants from MFT

Hi everyone! Today's card is a shaker card with an adorable little elephant from a stampset from My favorite things called exactly that: Adorable Elephants. This stampset has been on the market for some time now, but it's new to me and I can't get enough of these little creatures...! 
This little fellow was colored using Copic Markers:
Body - N0, N2, N4 and N6
Ears -  R00, R11, R20 and RV21  
The dots on the cheeks were made using a white Sakura gel pen.
To create the background, I used an older background stamp from Hero Arts and stamped it with Distress Oxide ink in the color "iced spruce".
The shaker part was inked with the same ink and I tried to achieve a somewhat ombré background, using the emboss resist technique with some of the butterflies from the stampset. The frame was diecut with the new stitched rectangle frame dies from Lawn Fawn.

The black enamel dots were made with Nuvo Crystal Drops - gloss Ebony black.

The sentiment "Grattis" means "Congratulations" in Swedish and was diecut with a die from Rox Stamps. I inked it up with some Distress Inks: "Abandoned Coral" and "Festive Berries". The heart balloon was also colored using those inks.

And to make it a shaker card - I popped the frame up in some foam adhesive and also adhered some transparent plastic to make the window. The confetti is a mixture of sequins from different suppliers, f.x. YouDo.

The inside was also made with the Lawn Fawn frame rectangle dies and inked with some Iced Spruce Distress Ink. The stamps are from the same stampset, mentioned above.

And the backside uses my sticker with contact info, along with a cute stamp from Gummiapan: "limited edition" - (which it is)!

To personalize the card before sending it - I simple added the recipient's name using alpha stickers from Tim Holtz. 

I hoped you enjoyed this card, and if you did - please leave a comment! Thank you for visiting and see you soon! Love //Anna
