Shaker Love for Sunday Stamps

Hello and welcome!  It's time for a new color challenge at Sunday Stamps!  I love these beautiful colors, perfect for winter or Valentine's Day cards.

I'll also be sharing my card at Time Out Challenges, where the current theme is "in love".

For my card, I created my first edge to edge shaker card.  Shaker cards are a design I rarely make, but I was intrigued by all the YT creators making these cards and had to try it out.

I started by stenciling the Elegant Swirls stencil in red on pink cardstock.  The red color ended up not being as vibrant as I wanted, but the bits in the shaker more than make up for it.  Next, I repurposed some stamp packaging, cutting it down to about a half inch larger on each side than the pink stenciled panel.  I used Score Tape to adhere three sides to the back of the panel, added all the sequins and heart confetti, then sealed up the fourth side.  I then adhered the shaker to the white card base.

Next, the heart wreath was die cut twice from white cardstock and once from white glitter cardstock, layered up for dimension and adhered to the card front.  The sentiment was stamped in gray pigment ink then clear heat embossed.  The word love was cut with the coordinating die and the secondary part of the sentiment with a label die.  Once those were adhered the card was complete.  It really did come together rather quickly, and I love how it turned out!

Thanks for taking time to visit, I appreciate it!  Be sure to use the link above to check out all the gorgeous cards by the other DT members and hopefully join us for the color challenge!
