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.




110 lb White Card Stock
  • 4" square card base
  • Piece to cut out 2 of the martini glass

  • 4" square of selected paper for table top (I used the Echo Park Sprint Market 6 x 6 paper pad)

  • Scrap of acetate for the back of the shaker
