Valentine Shaker Card

Hello friends~  Valentine's Day is drawing near so I've got a quick and easy CAS Valentine Shaker card to share with you today using dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs.
I started by cutting an A2 size card panel out of Rich Black Soft Finish Cardstock.  From that, I cut the Leafy Lace Heart out from the center.  I cut another Leafy Lace Heart out of Ladybug Red Soft Finish Cardstock.  I adhered a piece of clear acetate using Clear Double Sided Adhesive onto the back of the Rich Black panel.  I then adhered the Ladybug Red Leafy Lace Heart over the top of the heart opening on the front of the card panel.  I added some foam tape to the back side of the card panel being careful that there were no gaps in the tape for the sequins to fall out.  I filled the center space with sequins, peeled the backing paper off the foam tape and adhered it to the front of a white, top folding A2 card base.  I added three flowers cut from White Soft Finish Cardstock using Bunch of Flowers 4 and added a red gem to the center of each flower.  To finish the card off, I adhered a piece of Clear Double Sided Adhesive to the front of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock  and cut the "XOXO" from Love Sentiments. After peeling the release paper from the from the front of the "XOXO", I added Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter and polished it to make it shine and adhered it to the front of the card.  

I hope you're inspired by today's card.  You can find all the details on the products I used at Elizabeth Craft Designs.  

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings~ Birgit


  1. Absolutely GORGEOUS! LOVE that heart die and how much it pops against the black card base...soooo pretty! And a shaker card too...swoooon!! How I wish we lived next to each other so we could craft together...but then again, we'd probably be in the poor house if we lived that close! Sigh....

  2. That heart is glorious! I love that you made it a Shaker card! Clever girl!
