Shaker Love

Hi All,

Since Valentine's Day is right around the corner, my last workshop was 'Heart' themed.  I love hearts, so it makes this theme so easy to work with.  Plus, there are TONS of options out there.

My card today has lots of hearts and was my first shot at a shaker card.  Inspired by this design, I had to give it a shot.  I loved the idea of adding in confetti.  Unfortunately, this stuff is not as easy to find as you'd think.  I ended up at Party City and have enough of it to last me a lifetime.

There is a great tutorial for Shaker Cards over at Splitcoaststamper.  I used a polaroid die cut for my shaker.  A transparency was trimmed and added for the window and heart confetti was thrown in side.  I probably could have used a bit more confetti, but I wasn't opening this back up to add it.  It is what it is :)

The background uses the Happy Heart embossing folder.  What's cool about this folder is that you can use the front of the piece for an embossed look (as shown) or the back for a debossed look.  Both are equally cute!
