H2H and Double Trouble - Hello My Friend

Welcome to both Double Trouble and Heart 2 Heart this week! 

The Double Trouble challenge image is below - more details can be found on the website

Heart 2 Heart this week is "All You Need is Love". The two challenges are combining forces this week!

I created a heart shaker using the Blossom paper collection. Blossom is one of my favourite packs from the past and I was so glad to see it brought back again. 

The front is a piece of the patterned paper from the pack and I cut out a heart so I could turn it into a shaker. The sentiment was stamped on the inside heart and brushed with the Clear Shimmer Brush. I added some mixed turquoise sequins inside the shaker. The zip strip from one of the papers was used as a border along the bottom and I also added some teal shimmer trim and a few gems to finish off the card. 

Come and join us at Double Trouble and Heart 2 Heart

  1. Still thinking about the Blossom paperpack, in fact it's one of the paperpacks that I actually used all the design papers and only have small scraps left. Beautiful paper makes a beautiful shaker card.

  2. Love that your used blossom for your shaker! I love this card and may just have to lift it. I love the layers behind the pattern paper.

  3. What a gorgeous card, Alyson! I, too, love the paper and the colors.

  4. This came together so cute! The colors are so fun and I always love a good shaker element :)

  5. Super pretty card 👏👏👏💐 congrats 😊
    Hugs and blessing
