My first project for this year is a design team project for Anthony's Paper Craft - a square Valentine shaker card using the Valentine's Day 2. For the next 3 weeks, each Friday, the design team will have a project for you showcasing this set. If you place an order online and add this SOTM set to your cart, your whole order will ship for free (USA only).
Valentine's Day 2 from Anthony's Paper Craft
Stitched Square Dies - Gina Marie Designs
Various sequins, seed beads, and/or glitter
White cardstock for the base and the back of the shaker
Decorative cardstock or paper for the card front
A piece of acetate, 4" x 4"
Using an x-acto knife, I made two slits in each heart (to make it easier to cut) and then I took fine tipped scissors (Martha Stewart) and cut out the hearts. Make sure you cut on the inside of the heart, to leave the black border, not on the outside of the border.
Cut a piece of acetate just shy of 4" x 4" and adhere it to the BACK of the hearts image. Then, using foam tape strips or foam pieces, adhere the foam around the hearts and around the edge.
Then, fill each of the hearts with what you want to shake around. I used red/gold small sequins, some pink seed beads, and some clear seed beads. I also cut another piece of decorative paper, just shy of 4" x 4", to adhere to the back. (Remember that the design will show inside the heart - so if you are using double-sided paper, note which side you want to show).
The front will now show your pattern inside the hearts with the sequins, beads, etc.
The back will show whatever the back of your paper was. For me, it was white because I used single-sided paper.
Apply your favorite adhesive to the back and adhere to your card front.
Thanks for stopping by the blog today and, until next time -
