House of Cards: LOVE!


Hello, all!  It's the first of the month--a busy time here on my blog--and I'm sharing my card for this month's challenge over at House of Cards!  We're starting to add "cue words" to our challenge repertoire and this month our first cue is...


You can be inspired by the word however you like!  I took the word literally and used it as my sentiment!  I also decided to go for a shaker card, since they are so fun!  Take a peek at my creation...


I started by creating the shaker portion of the card.  If you've never made one, they are actually quite simple.  Just punch or die cut your shape out of the top portion of the shaker panel (the silver glitter paper on my card), glue acetate to the back of it, add a solid line of dimensional foam around the window shape, add your filling (I used sequins), then add the back portion of the panel (the patterned paper portion with the sentiment on it on my card).  Then you jazz it up!  I used some punched leaves, a small paper flower, and some hot pink pearls.



Before you add your shaker to the card base, jazz that up, too.  I used a punched border, some ribbon, some patterned paper, and some more hot pink pearls to cute-ify (yes, it's now a word) my card base...


I have to say, I LOVE my completed card!  I think it's really pretty and I like how it turned out!  It's destined for a very special someone this Valentine's Day season. :)  What do you think?  I'd love to hear your opinion, so please leave me a comment below!

That's all for now!  I'll be back another time for some more fun and crafty things to share with you all.  Thanks for stopping by--I hope you come and play along with us at House of Cards, too!  HUGS and happy stamping, all!
