Clear Scraps Mini Shaker Mitten--I'm S-Mitten Valentine's Card
January 30, 2021
Hey there everyone! Laura is here to share a little Valentine's inspiration with you today!
I think out of all of the homemade cards, Valentine's can be one of the most special.
They are fun to embellish up any way you want to, because you will often give one to
that "someone special" in person on Valentine's Day. This particular card was
created using one of the Clear Scraps Mini Shaker Mitten shapes. Not necessarily
what you'd think of for Valentine's, but hey, I like to think outside the box! Clear
Scraps has some lovely hearts and such if you'd prefer, but I saw the mitten and
the "S-Mitten" play on words just popped into my head. Cute, right??!!
To start this one off I first painted the top outline/layer of the mitten with pink,
red, and white acrylic paint. While that dried, I traced the back portion of the
mitten shaker onto a pretty piece of Valentine heart patterned paper.
Next, I cut the shape out and then glued it to the back solid piece of the shaker.
Then I glued the other 2 unpainted outline shape pieces, to build up the shaker.
Next I added the super cute Valentine sprinkles. These are NEW from Clear Scraps!
This particular mix is called the Sprinkles Love Mix. Look at the cute little hearts
and snowflakes and yes, sprinkles! Just adorable! You can find these and more
in the "What's New" section in the Clear Scraps store right HERE. After adding
those sprinkles, I glued on the acrylic layer--and remember--make sure to take
the protective film off of BOTH sides of your acrylic layer!!! It's hard to tell, but it's
on there to keep it protected until you use it! Lastly, you glue on the painted top piece.
While it all dries well, I created the standard A2 white card base (5&1/2"x4&1/4") and
added red and patterned paper. I added some twine, trim and enamel dots to finish it up.
Thanks for Stopping by today! Stop back soon for more inspiration!!
