Sometimes a card layout just keeps changing with every copy. This card was one that kept begging for just one more thing. This is my final version.
My final version has a Polished Pink base (brand new in-color). The window layer starts with a piece of Basic White which is 4″ x 5 1/4″ and has a layer of Pattern Party Designer Paper which is 3 3/4″ x 5″. The Pattern Party DSP is a Hostess Reward item in the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog and is an awesome deal. One side is black and white patterns and the other side is bright colored patterns. Hostess Rewards are earned once a party (or order) reaches $150.
This card uses the Birthday Chick Dies to cut out the greeting and little egg. The Cupcake chicken is stamped on a piece of Basic White cut with the largest circle die from the Layering Circles Dies and glued to the card front. The circle on the front of the card is the second largest in the Layering Circle Dies and I adhered the layers first and then cut both layers at once.
The window sheet is cut 3″ square and glued to the back of the white and Pattern Party layers with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. The little chick is adhered flat, but could be popped up with dimensionals. All of the coloring is done with a mix of Stampin’ Bend colors.

My second version is similar to the final version, but doesn’t have a designer series paper layer added. The colors have been switched up a little. The Ice Cream Corner Sprinkles are perfect for shaker cards. They are sort of soft and squishy, thin and brightly colored. I used a large pinch for this shaker. I like to place a pinch of the sprinkles onto the cupcake chicken and then place the prepared top layer over the chicken. The Foam Strip Adhesives work perfectly for forming around shaker card windows.
The first version of my card was very simple (for a shaker card). I chose one of my favorite past in-colors, Pineapple Punch. To keep it very simple, this card uses just the one color of card stock and the window sheet. I didn’t use any of the Birthday Chick Dies but did use the second largest Layering Circle Die to cut the window. It also has very little coloring, just a few highlights, to keep it quick and simple.
For the inside, some confetti and a greeting also from the Hey Birthday Chick stamp set, with some strips of the Playing with Patterns Designer Paper finished off the card.
I hope that you’ve enjoyed these different versions of the same card, and that they will give you some ideas for making some fun cards.
