Hearts Shaker

 Hi Artzy friends -

Today I am sharing a mini slim shaker card that would be perfect for your Valentine in a few weeks!

The beautiful Slim Mini Heart Background die comes with the scalloped background die which I cut in red cardstock. I adhered two layers of the heart background together to make my shaker element a little more sturdy, and attached a piece of clear acetate to the back. I found the perfect little heart shapes in my stash to fill the inside of my shaker card!

I heat embossed the sentiment from the Well Wishes stamp set onto a piece of vellum die cut with the little scalloped rectangle from the Pop Up Feature die set.

I think this card would be perfect for Valentine's Day, an anniversary, or just because! 

Join our challenge for the month of January! The theme is Winter Fun, and you'll have a chance to win a $15 gift certificate to the Dare 2B Artzy store!

Thanks for visiting, and have a great day!

Floating By

 Hi Artzy friends -

For me, January means the end of the holiday card making season, and time to start making birthday cards for the year. 

I hope this card puts a smile on the recipient's face, especially if they have a winter birthday!

This full front, or edge to edge shaker card is easy to create with any clear packaging you may have laying around. I made a pocket with a card panel that was foiled with the Make Waves Hot Foil Plate and a piece of clear plastic packaging, and filled the pocket with sequins and shaker bits before sealing up the pocket.
I then colored and die cut my jellyfish and other sea creatures from the Jellyfish stamps and dies sets. I added them to the front of my card, along with my sentiment from the Seahorses stamp set, which I stamped on a banner die from the Wavy Slimline Framelits dies.

I just love all the sparkle and shine and "fun factor" of this card!
