Avocado Shaker Card

Good morning my crafty friends!
I'm up on the Kat Scrappiness blog today and I have a fun card featuring the 
brand new You Guac My World stamp set!
I just love those cute avocados and they can really be used for so
many different themed cards!
I used quite a few Kat Scrappiness products on this card.
Here's how I put it together:

To begin with I made a square card base from kraft card stock
and I embossed the front with a heart embossing folder.
Next I took the largest Stitched Scalloped Heart Die and die
cut it out of white card stock. Since I wanted to make a shaker
element out of the heart I used a smaller Layered Nested Heart Die
to cut a smaller heart shape out of the layered heart.
Once I had the middle heart cut out, I layered acetate over the 
heart shaped opening on the back of the scalloped heart.
I then used foam tape around the heart shaped opening to make 
a well to put my shaker bits into.
I used the Sparkling Wintergreen Sequins and the 
Mirrored Clear Solid Heart Confetti to fill my shaker window.
Once the shaker was full I backed the heart with some light green
patterned paper from the Lawn Fawn Gotta Have Gingham
paper pack. Once I glued the shaker element down,  I layered the 
2 cute avocados on the bottom right of the heart that I had previously 
colored with my Copic markers and cut out on my Scan n Cut machine.
The sentiment is from the same stamp set and I stamped it onto black card stock
 using Versamark clear ink and then heat embossed it with 
I have tried MANY MANY white embossing powder brands in the past
and this one is the first one to give me a bright white finish without
fading away while heating it with my heat gun.
It's definitely my new favorite white embossing powder!
Once the sentiment was embossed and cooled off, I cut it out
using a die from the Stitched Fishtail Banner Dies.

Speaking of favorites, Kat Scrappiness just released their own 
Metal Die Snips to cut apart your dies that come wired together.
They cut like butter and they have a flat edge that lets you cut right up
close to the die so it doesn't leave any sharp edges.  They make clipping your
dies apart a breeze! Make sure to check them out in the shop today!

Here's a picture of all the supplies I used on my shaker card today.

Thank you so much for joining me today! I really had fun making this card,
shakers are my favorite type of card to make and I just adore
those cute avocados from the new You Guac My World stamp set!
