Mama Elephant Little Train Agenda Birthday Shaker Card

Hey Everybody!!!

This is a custom card request from my Etsy shop. My client wanted a train shaker card for her son and I was happy to oblige!

Surprise, surprise, I had Mama Elephant’s Little Train Agenda Stamp and Die sets sitting in my to-use pile so I finally get to use them!!! What’s nice about the coordinating dies is that they cut out the window for the engine of the train.


Anyways, so I stamped the images using Hero Arts Intense Black Ink and die cut the images with the coordinating dies. I coloured the images with the following Copic Markers: E95, YR00, YG09, YG06, YG03, YG11, E33, E31, E53, E42, B97, B95, B02, B00, V04, V01, C1, 0, C3, C5, T7, T5, T3, Y08, Y06, Y11, YR16, YR02, R20, R29, R27, and R35.

I die cut pieces for my background using Lawn Fawn’s Stitched Hillside Backdrop: Landscape and Mama Elephant’s Cityscape Die. I used Lawn Fawn’s Happy Birthday Border which is a scripty die cut that says, “Happy birthday to you” and die cut it once in Recollections Gold Glitter cardstock and 110lb white card stock and glued them together to create a bit of dimension.

I created an inkblended background using Distress Oxide Inks Salty Ocean and Faded Jeans and sprayed water to create a splattered effect.

I used 3M foam tape and a piece of acetate to create my shaker component and filled the shaker with an assortment of sequins and confetti.

I adhered all my elements onto my card front and glued the card front to a dark blue card base with my ATG adhesive. I finished the front of the card by applying Clear Wink Of Stella to the star on the train, the balloons, the sun, the ice cream cone, and the presents. For the inside of the card, I die cut a the stitched rectangle from Mama Elephant’s Basic Set and cut a light grey piece of card stock to use as a matte for the stitched rectangle.


That finishes up my card. The 30 Day Coloring Challenge is going on right now so this card was entered in that. You can check out the details
