Blog Hop! Red, white and blue or patriotic theme

Welcome to Di's Country INKers Blog Hop for July!!  I have been having fun with washi tape and made a "shaker" card using it, so that is what I decided to do for my blog hop card.  The birthday greeting was embossed on a piece of window sheet...there is silver foil behind it which doesn't seem to photograph well!

 I punched stars from red and white glimmer paper as well as night of navy and used silver vellum stripe on the new kraft cardstock (all Stampin' Up items)

The white pigment ink on the kraft cardstock is actually a starfish stamp that I cut off the 3 starfish stamp!  Of course I had to emboss a piece of silver foil behind the shaker box and add a silver foil bow.  It is great to have both silver and gold paper and accessories to mix and match in the new Stampin' Up catalog!

It is my father's 81st birthday on Saturday, so I just put this card in the mail to him in Mass.  I sent it flat rate and did it online as cards I sent this way before to him got there in 2-3 days.  He is in a rehab center right now so this interactive shaker card might be kinda fun....I am sending him 7 balloons as well.  I know he will love the attention he gets when someone comes into his room and after they see the balloons, he should get lots of birthday wishes!!  We are heading out there in our RV and 2 furbabies later this month so will get to see him, but of course, call him on his birthday to see how he likes his surprises.

Now head on to the next blog, who is Kathya, for some more awesomeness, and thanks for stopping by!!
