Birthday Cake Tower Card

 I purchased the Whimsy rectangle die (Slim Line Waves) to use on another card, but I happened to 'find' the Penny Black 'tall cake' stamp in my rolling bin of birthday themed supplies.  Voila! I absolutely had to put them together.  By cutting a second frame of foam sheet, I was able to make a shaker card.  Using foam for the inner layer has its challenges as the foam sheet seems to distort slightly when going through the die cutting machine so it might be a good idea to cut several frame layers from card stock and glue them together. The background with balloons and banners was cut from a 12x12 Pebbles sheet (Birthday stack) and inlaid into the frame.
As you can see from this close up, I inserted some pastel sequins and glitter into the cavities before sealing them with a clear acetate sheet and the dotted aqua frame. I didn't put too much in because then the printed design of the paper would be obscured...just enough and there is some sparkle plus sound.
The Pebbles printed card stock just happened to have a 'Happy Birthday' banner that fit in the top two windows of the die cut cool is that?  Did you notice the stamped sentiment, ' Did someone say cake?' I happened upon the clear stamp in an Avery Elle set that was squished in that bottomless rolling Birthday bin.  I guess I CAN go craft shopping in my own room....just like my husband always says..LOL!  Happy crafting and shopping at HM Ben Franklin Crafts!

Slim line cards have taken the card crafting world by storm! I really like that yours is a shaker card as well... so fun!I'm always one or two steps behind what's new but do think I will try one soon. Thanks for the advice about not die cutting foam for a shaker card!
