TDD Shaker Card Blog Hop


Welcome to the Top Dog Dies blog hop! Along this hop you will find all sorts of clever shaker cards from the Top Dog Dies design team. This card uses the Vintage A2 Mat Die to hold seed beads in the shaker cavity. When you hold the card upright, you just see the "happy birthday" message that's been stamped on the acetate.

Then when our 3 year-old cousin Sophie shakes her card,


she'll find her name!

 I like using seed beads because they move easily due to their shape and weight. Sometimes the sequins frustrate me because they stick to the acetate. I threw a few stars in there to break up the beads.


I wish I could see her tiny hands shaking her birthday card! The letters are from the Vintage Alphabet Set.

Each Design Team member has created a special shaker card using dies from Top Dog Dies. Visit each blog, check out the shaker projects and leave your comments.
