Hey friends! I’m over on the Newton’s Nook blog today with a “sweet” shaker card to share with you! Pun intended. Lol. My intentions were for my heart shaker to look like a box of chocolates and I had so much fun coloring them all!
I started by die cutting the scalloped heart first. Then I lined up the Heartfelt Love image and stamped it. I used copic markers to color everything. I kept to the E30 and E50s for chocolate and R20s for accent colors. I was imagining this to be everything from white to dark chocolate and super yummy to boot!
Once everything was colored, I cut another scalloped heart from kraft and then cut the next smallest heart from that to create a frame. I cut another scalloped heart from acetate and adhered these together with liquid glue. Then I lined the frame with foam strips, sprinkled my pixie dust inside and sealed it up with the colored chocolates.
I die cut a red scalloped rectangle using the largest Frames & Flags die and splattered it with white paint. Once the paint was dry I added foam tape and adhered it to a white card base.
Next, to finish up the box of chocolates, I chose a sentiment from Heartfelt Love, stamped and heat embossed it and then die cut it with the smallest oval in the Oval Frames die set. I punched a hole in it and tied it to the box with sparkle twine from my stash.
To add the heart to my card front, I placed foam tape on the back but avoided the twine so it lays nice and flat. After that, my card is all finished. It’s simple but fun and definitely gives that Valentine vibe I was looking for.
As a way of celebrating continuing on with the Newton’s Nook Design Team and everything they do for us. I am hosting a giveaway of some super fabulous Newton’s Nook goodies. I’ve got a set of the new stickers plus a couple of fabulous stamp sets and a paper pad.
