When you incorporate these characters into a shaker window and fill it with a few sparkly sequins, beads, or gems, they become even more magical! Because these character stamps are designed to fit inside our Circle Shaker Windows, you can easily create a shaker window using any of these stamps as a backdrop. You can even play around with other shaker window shapes, like hearts, stars, or rectangles! You can see in the examples above that shaker windows make a great addition to your card fronts, but we encourage you to try adding them to your scrapbook pages as well! When you incorporate a shaker window as an accent on your page, it instantly adds some interactive excitement that makes the whole page sparkle!

Whether your shaker window graces the front of a card or provides an unforgettable accent for a scrapbook page, it’s a sure-fire way to up your crafting game, especially when using the Birthday Numbers Stamp + Thin Cuts set!  With so many creative options available with the Birthday Numbers Stamp + Thin Cuts set, it makes birthday crafting an absolute joy.
