Shaker Card - Making paper scraps go the extra mile

Happy Thursday!

I have been so busy creating with the new papers in the new Idea Book! If you have yet to see the new book, please check it out here!
Did you know you can receive a FREE copy when you place your first order during the life of the idea book?

When I made the adorable pencil holder valentines (click here to see those) there were left over super cute hearts. I had to just use them. First I thought a layout, but then a card idea popped into my head.

I started with a standard A2 card base (4.25" x 5.5") and lined my hearts so two hung off the side and the third was centered between the two.

Once I had my hearts placed where I liked them, I traced them. Using the pencil marks as a guide, I  cut my card based to create a window. 


Loose Silver Sequins 

A simple acetate sheet was placed on the inside, then a layer of 3D foam tape was added to the inside of the card base, and very closely around the window. Inside the winder, silver, loose sequins were added, and a white daisy card base adhered on top.

The sentiment "Happy Birthday" was stamped in versa mark ink, and heat embossed in Ranger White embossing powder, on Black Cardstock. The piece was cut in a dove tail at both ends, with a strip of 3D Foam tape behind it, and centered on the lagoon heart.
