Yay! Yesterday turned into a snow day for me from work. I love when that happens! An unexpected day off is always a delightful surprise! Even if a foot of snow is not. It did give me the chance to get a head start on my Valentine's Day cards and, as a result, I have a really fun card to share with you today. And, what's even more fun than a "punny" Valentine's card!? A punny Valentine's SHAKER card! Consider making more shaker cards one of my New Year's resolutions because they really are so fun!
Plus, these otters from My Favorite Things are too stinkin' adorable!
The base of this A2 sized card is made from Crumb Cake cardstock. The first matted layer is 5 1/4" x 4" Rudolph Plaid paper by Lawn Fawn. Next I made a frame out of Real Red cardstock using two different sized Stitched Rectangle dies by Gina Marie Designs. I adhered a 5" x 3 3/4" sheet of Acetate window sheet to the back side of the red frame. On a 5 " x 3 3/4' sheet of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on the top left corner and adhered this piece to the center of the card. Next I cut Foam Adhesive strips to the appropriate size to fit the back side of the red frame. Before adhering the window frame onto the card, I added approximately 2 tablespoons of Sweetheart Sequins.
On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the two otters in Memento Tuxedo black ink and let them dry completely before coloring them in with my Spectrum Noir Alcohol markers. I adhered the two otters to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals. Using a small (retired) heart punch, I also punched one heart out of Real Red cardstock and adhered it to the center of the otter on the right with a Mini Stampin' Dimensional.
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!
