Love Shaker Card

Today was my first try at a shaker card! I've seen them around for years, but just never tackled one until today. I'm not sure what took me so long, because it really wasn't too hard! Now I'll have to remember going forward to save plastic from my packages so I can make some more soon - I may be hooked!

This also marks my first time participating in a Challenge Blog. Shopping Our Stash's weekly challenge theme is "All That Glitters is Gold," and I thought this card fit the bill nicely!

To start, I used my Nellie's Multi Frames heart dies to cut a heart shape in some patterned cardstock from Michael's. I then cut a gold glitter cardstock frame to go around the opening with my heart dies, as well as the "love" sentiment using my Hero Arts Cut & Stamp set. I flipped the paper over and adhered a square piece of thin plastic to cover the opening, and lined the edges of it with foam squares. I filled the center with sequins and punched hearts, then stuck it on the white card base.



This picture shows the variety of hearts and sequins inside the shaker.
