Shaking Up My Altenew Educator Project with a Martini Pop Up Shaker Card

****I am a little bit late on a few of my postings as to family medical issues,  Thanks for reading! ****

Hello and welcome to my Birthday Card of the Month for January 2019.  This is a new series whereby I will be share the creation of the card I will be gifting my friends each month.  For the next few months I will be pairing it with my work I am doing to achieve my Altenew Educator Certification Level 2. 
This first months card is a tribute to my favorite adult beverage, the Appletini.  I wanted a super fun and festive card that could be displayed on a shelf and just be really different so I came up with the idea of having the martini shaker card pop up, on an elegant tray set, on a beautiful tablecloth. 

Watch the video to check out how I created this fun card then head back to the blog where you will find a list of tools and supplies below.

Perky Penny Picks - Spellbinders Paper Arts Die-secting the Dies

I saw these dies and my head started filling with possibilities of what I could do with them. As you may know if you follow me I am a big fan of thinking outside of the box.  Here are to pretty cards I created by doing just that.

I die cut 3 of the Love Grows die from white card stock and 1 from a pink glitter card stock. I then stacked them and offset the pink glitter layer on the very bottom.

I then die cut a panel of French Flair die from the Rouge Royale Deux Collection and trimmed it to connect with the Love piece.

I took an A2 card base and trimmed it down to the width of Love Grows die and adhered the trimmed down piece of the French Flair die on first and then the die cut stack to the bottom.  I finished this card off with the "with" die cut out of the same pink glitter card stock and backed up with a piece of white.



I die cut a duo of the top flower spray, of this With Love etched die and then butted them up opposite each other centered on a 3 3/4" x 5" white card stock panel and then place that over a silver mat that measures 4" x 5 1/4".  I die cut the 25th out of the center of said silver mat.  These numbers come from the Shapeabilities Filigree Numbers Etched Dies.  I glued the numbers to the Vellum which I wrapped around the card to appear as if it is a belly band.
