Stamptacular Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stamptacular Blog Hop!

I chose to create a card using a design that I saw quite a while ago created by Andrea Sherman. I love shaker cards and wanted to add that element to my card. 

The base piece along with the borders were cut using my Cricut. It took me a few attempts to get what I wanted. The shaker was created directly on the patterned paper on the inside of the card. I stamped some hearts and coloured the large ones before adding Silver and Julep sequins. The front of the card was adhered to the Cricut cut base and the sentiment was stamped. The floral grouping was stamped using Black Pigment Ink and embossed as that made it easier to colour. Once it was adhered to the front (and taken off a few times as I accidentally added adhesive that was on top of the shaker part, not allowing the card to open...), the flowers were brushed with the Clear Shimmer Brush. I added a white acrylic heart that was coloured and some Silver Glitter Gems. 

I hope you enjoyed my card!
