Happy Valentine’s Day Everyone! I hope you have a wonderful day celebrating with the one you love! But before you head out to your Valentine’s Day celebration, you might want to just take a peek at this fun little shaker card project I have to share with all of you. No, it’s not necessarily a last minute Valentine’s Day project (although I suppose it could be). Now remember I did give you lots of Valentine’s Day ideas over the past couple of weeks so hopefully that helped you complete all of your cards and projects waaay before today! 🙂
To make this card, you will start with a piece of whisper white cardstock for the base of your card. Cut out a crisp cantaloupe picture frame using the On Film framelit set and your big shot. Lay the frame on your white cardstock and stamp your favorite sentiment in the center of it (on the white paper) using crisp cantaloupe ink. Take the frame off the white paper and secure a window sheet to the back side of it. You will want to cut your window sheet to the size of the square opening of the frame (so that it covers the opening)….approximately 4 x 4 inches. At this point, you can add a bit of venetian trim ribbon across the lower half of the frame….secure the ends to the back of the frame so they don’t show.
Once you have the window sheet secured to the backside of the frame, place dimensionals all the way around the frame. This is the tricky part as you need to make sure you cut your dimensionals to fit along the skinny part of the frame so they don’t show through the window sheet. You can use shaker frame dimensionals, just cut them into small strips as they are circular. Now that you have the window sheet and dimensionals secured to the frame, pour some of the sequins on the white card over the top of where you stamped your sentiment. Spread them out a little bit so they are not clumped together. Now peel off the backing from the dimensionals and secure your frame on the card over the top of the sequins. Press firmly so that the frame adheres. Now just shake the card and watch the sequins move behind the window sheet. Cool, hey?
