Baby Shower Shaker Card

I 'discovered' some cute rocking horse confetti (from HM BFC) in my stash aka 'hoarded stuff' and decided to use them to make a shaker baby shower card for the daughter of a very dear friend.  As with previous shaker cards, I used a Heiko clear cellophane bag ( purchased from HM Ben Franklin Crafts) to make the shaker part.  It is simple to cut baby themed card stock to fit the bag and sized to the blank card front. After the confetti (rocking horses and hearts) was enclosed in the clear bag it was sealed and taped in the back.  
The whole shaker component was adhered to the card blank with double stick Heiko tape.  I added a BABY SHOWER die cut (from old stash) and a 'It's a GIRL' charm (from HM Ben Franklin Crafts). Heiko thin pastel colored ribbon was tied onto the jump ring on the charm.  This card was super simple to make and has a cheerful look which matches the upcoming happy event. Welcome Sweet Baby Girl!

 P.S. Don't forget to make matching tags with the leftover printed card stock. (HM Ben Franklin Crafts always has a delightful selection of baby themed papers in stock.) I used the Hero Arts Infinity tag dies to cut the tag base. It also comes with dies to make the reinforcement circles which are desirable when stringing thick ribbons...keeps the holes from ripping.  You can find an ample supply of ribbons and twine at HM BFC. They will definitely add the finishing touch to your matching tags.

Your baby shower shaker card is adorable with the rocking horse confetti. I'm going to have to look for those bags in the right size so I can give this shaker card a try too!
