I Heart You

Hi, it's Diana with another shaker card!  I hope you are not too tired of them. It's quite easy to take an element in a card to turn it into a shaker card or vice versa. 

Here I used Spellbinders Heart Circles (on sale now in the Classy Cards 'n Such store) to make my frame. I even saved some of the red hearts from the negative of the dies to use inside my shaker element. I used both Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A and the stitched die from MFT Blueprints 13 for my layers.

The shaker element was made using foam and 1/8" Score-Tape to secure my layers. I love Scor-Tape, it's so strong and easy to use. With shaker cards, that might get a lot of handling, you want a strong tape.

Before I adhered everything together, I added a silver heart element and glued it to the center of my back layer. Out of the same SB Precious Metals Craft Foil, I die cut the letters  "i" and "u", using lower case alphabet dies.

Finally, I used a white gel pen to add stitching detail to my heart doily, to match the stitching around my card.
