Love You shaker card

 

Hi everyone, Lou here sharing my first project using this months Through the letter Box Kit called ‘Love is …’ and I decided to use one of the large heart die cuts to create a shaker card.

On the back of the heart, I roughly sketched out where I wanted to cut and using a craft knike created my frame. Next I added the acetate behind and to cover any cutting mishaps, I used the crystal gems supplied to go around the inside edge. The shaker is full of glitter and wooden hearts, crystal gems and some sequins, (not supplied in this months kit) and finished off with a ribbon wrap.

Before sticking the heart down, I added some ribbon banners. Next came 2 more hearts, layered on top of each other with the ‘love’ diecut as the finishing touch. As my final decoration, I’ve added some smaller hearts, gems & sequins.

I hope you are enjoying all the projects with the ‘Love is …’ kit and to get an idea of how many items are included, pop over to the shop to get a full itinerary.
