Hey Sweetheart

I'm back with another heart shaped Valentine.  This time I decided to make it a shaker.  Super easy with the help of the Stitch Dot Heart Backdrop dies.  I created the base with the largest by folding my cardstock in half and running it through with the top of the heart hanging just over the edge of the fold.  I nested the second largest heart and the fourth largest together and held them in place with some tape.  I used the third largest heart to cut the design paper layer and the acetate to add to my heart frame (the perfect size since it is in between the two I used for the frame).

My paper had the "sweetheart" word on it so I cut that layer strategically so it would show through the window.

I stamped, die cut and colored the roses from the Hug In A Mug set and I had cut that pretty bird using the bird and wing dies from the Tweet Bird Cage set from some gel press paper scrap I had.  Finally the sprig was in my stash in white so I colored it up the same color as the flower leaves and then added some red Nuvo drops to the tips.

I had a lot of fun layering everything and just moved them around until I was happy and adhered them with glue and various thicknesses of foam tape.

Thanks so much for stopping!  Come again soon!
