While most crafters love making Christmas cards, I actually love the crafty season that follows next!
Valentine's Day is my favorite crafty holiday! I've always loved hearts and pink and girly things ever since I was a little girl! The recent release at Kat Scrappiness brought with it the most awesome Mini Slimline Dies you've ever seen! There are so many different varieties which means there is something for everyone! My favorite of all of them is the Mini Stitched Scalloped Slimline Dies! Those dainty little scallops just make my heart go pitter patter! My second favorite Mini Slimline Die has to be the Mini Slimline Double Stitched Dies because it is the perfect layering dies for ALL the minis!
I used both of my favorite minis today for my shaker card.
For the shaker element on my card I used 2 different heart dies. The first is the Stitched Scalloped Heart Dies and the second is the Layering Nested Heart Dies. To make the shaker window I took the largest Stitched Scalloped Heart and I cut the middle out of it with the second largest Layered Heart Die. Once I had the scalloped frame I adhered a piece of acetate to that back of it that I cut out using one of the Layered Heart Dies.
The next step was to add foam tape to the back of the frame. A tip to help you mold foam tape around a specific shape easier is to remove the backing tape before you start to adhere it. Once I had the entire frame lined with foam tape it was time to pick out the fun shaker bits to go inside the window.
The back of the shaker heart is the largest Stitched Scalloped Heart cut out and left whole.
For my Valentine's themed card I chose the adorable Cupid's Arrow Sequin Mix and I stamped my Happy Valentine's Day sentiment from the Valentine Quokka stamp set. I also used the beautiful Pink Heart Droplets around my sentiment in the 4mm and 6mm sizes.
This card was so much fun to make and probably because I used so many of my favorite Kat Scrappiness products! Head on over to the shop and check out all of the new Mini Slimline Dies, the new Quokka stamp set and the hundreds of adorable sequins and sprinkles!
Here is one more look at my card with all of the supplies used.
