Valentine Hearts Greeting card

Hello Crafty Friends!

I'm Dana and today I'll be sharing some Valentine's day card inspiration with you. I think handmade cards are the best. I love to surprise my friends with some happy mail! 

For the Valentine card we'll be creating today, I'm using Clear Scraps mini  Double Hearts shaker. Click Here  I think shaker cards as much fun to make as to receive. 


For this card you'll need some white cardstock. Trim to 6x6 size. I'm using leftover papers from  Authentique Crush and Lovely collections.  For my first card layer, I trimmed it down to 5 & 3/4 x 5 & 3/4 inches, leaving a 1/4 inch white border around my card base. Adhere this paper onto your card base. The second striped paper I cut to 5 & 5/8 x 5 1/4 inches, and adhered on top of my previous card layer, using foam dots. I cut out one of the sentiment strips from my paper pack and glued at the bottom of my card.

Next remove your shaker from your package. Take the bottom shaker piece and trace around your shape onto some coordinating papers. Cut out and adhere your paper to your bottom bottom shaker piece using Beacon 3 in 1 glue. Let dry. Then trim around the edges with your x-acto knife. Then smooth around the edges using Clear Scraps sanding tool. Click Here

Take your top shaker piece and apply tacky craft glue along the edges of the hearts. Sprinkle some chunky glitter over the top of shaker. Shake off any excess glitter. You could also paint your shaker piece instead of adding glitter. I love sparkle so I think the chunky glitter makes your hearts really shine and stand out.  Set aside to dry. Next  I adhered some stickers onto my bottom shaker piece, in between each heart. Then using Beacon 3 in 1 glue, adhere your next 2 pieces of your chipboard shaker in place. Add your shaker filler, I used Clear Scraps Sprinkles Heart Love, inside each heart. Take the acrylic piece and peel off the protective film on both sides, before gluing onto your shaker. Then add your glitter shaker piece on top! Set aside to throughly dry before shaking! 


Now take your Beacon 3 in 1 glue and adhere your next two chipboard shaker pieces in place. Add your shaker filler, I used Clear Scraps Sprinkles Heart Love filler inside each heart.  Click Here Take your acrylic layer and peel off the protective film on both sides from both sides before gluing down onto your shaker. Then add your glitter shaker piece on top! Set aside and let dry throughly before shaking! 


To finish off my card, I cut out one of the journaling cards, added some foam dots on the back, then adhered to my card slightly slanted towards the upper right corner. I added a few little Dazzle heart stickers above the sentiment. And I took some Stickles glitter "Star Dust"  and applied to the angels wings and dress. With my sparkle pen, I added alittle shimmer to the basket of hearts! Now glue your Double hearts shaker in the upper left corner of your card. 


Here are some closeups!
