I think the blog fog I have been in for the past two weeks may be lifting. I have never made a shaker card before so this was just the challenge to get me going again. Thanks Heather for the inspiration!
First of all, I created the "box" by die cutting three layers from PTI Coasters and gluing them together. Cut another circle from the patterned paper for the back of the box, cut another circle from acetate for the front of the box, and framed it with the stamped circle mounted on the scallop.
It was fun to use some patterned paper for a change and punching the confetti hearts took no time at all; thanks to Martha Stewart's Confetti Heart Punch. It's probably difficult to see from the photo, but I used red glitter paper from Recollections, and PTI Raspberry Fizz, Hibiscus Burst, and Sweet Blush card stock for the confetti, repeating the colors of the Bitty Dot Basics and Bitty Box Basics papers mounted on the SS White card base. Raspberry Fizz Ink for the circular hearts border from 2010 Love Tags, and the Hero Arts sentiment from CL402. The circle and scalloped circle dies used for the shaker are Spellbinders, and the horizontal Hearts Border from PTI was the finishing detail. I thought the sentiment was very fitting with "lots & lots" of little hearts in the shaker! I hope you like my traditional take on the shaker card. Please leave a comment, I love hearing from you!
