Shaker Birthday Card with Tin of Cards Stamp Set

Hi, Guys!!
Happy Friday and Happy Veteran's Day.   A big Thank you to all our past, present and future service men and women.  You are truly appreciated each and every day.
So today I tried to film a video several times throughout the day however my children had the day off of school so I was interrupted several times throughout the day.  So I made two birthday cards both for my nieces who's birthday parties are tomorrow.  One card that I was trying to do a video on is a shaker card pictured here

I just love how this turned out.  I made it with my Cricut machine and cut craft foam for the first time.  I always get a little nervous when I cut something other than card stock from my Cricut even though I know it is made to cut all kinds of stuff.  I will do a video this week showing you how to do a shaker card.  The other card I made was very simple but loved how it turned out too.  Here is a picture of that one too

 Both of these cards I embossed and I have to tell you guys that I have been embossing for years.  I love what it adds to a project.  I always have had an issue with the embossing powder sticking everywhere.  I have tried rubbing a dryer sheet to prevent static but it never worked I kinda just did my best to try to remove any unwanted powder, I often used a paint brush.  I ordered the embossing buddy from Stampin Up and it works Awesome.  I have not had one issue with embossing powder sticking anywhere other than where it is supposed to stick. You can order it here

I also used Happy Birthday, and the border from the Stamp Set Tin of Cards from Stamping up.  You can order it here
What a great universal Stamp Set Tin of Cards is.  I just received an order from Stampin Up the other day and I am super excited to start creating with it.  I ordered the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies which are so awesome.  I will do a video shortly with a project or two using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  When you order Stitched Shapes Framelits you will get 25% of a select stamp set through November 30.  You can order here  
Happy Friday!!
