In search of an idea for my nephew Gavin’s birthday card I was thumbing through the new Stampin’ Up catalog and there it was on page 68 where Stampin’ Up had some darling examples of cards they had made using the Broadway Bound Suite. Gavin is turning 5 and that’s kind of a big birthday because he starts kindergarten this fall so I wanted something with a wow effect and this shaker card definitely qualifies.
