A Valentine Cutie




Good Morning Everyone,
Boy oh boy is it ever cold here and now another snow storm is on the way! When will it ever end?! *sigh* One good thing that I can say about the cold is I've been creating up a storm. It is just too cold to do anything else.



Today's card is a Valentines shaker card. After I sealed the backing I sorta wished that I had used more micro beads.



I also added some tiny hearts using my hand held heart punch. I wanted my focus to be on my shaker image and kept my card simple. Right now I'm sentiment challenged (again) and I could not find a sentiment stamp that I was pleased with at the time. I simply stamped three hearts in place of a sentiment for the now.

Card Details........
stamp Elzybell (A Winter Song) ,c/s SU and PTI, Inks Adirondack Pitch Black and Copic Markers, Nesties dies, acetate, SU's micro beads, swiss dots embossing folder, pearls, extra fine glitter, mounting foam and ribbon

Thanks for stopping by and try to stay warm!

Hugs


Risa

Hi Risa, what an adorable card you have made, I love the shape of your frame and the sweet little hearts for your confetti... so effective.
I agree with you that shaker cards should be kept simple so that you focus on the shaker image. which is so cute. Hugs rachxxx

Hi Risa,

Love your card, but to tell you the truth, I've never made a "shaker" card in all the years I've been stamping. Shhhhh, don't send out the police, okay?

Hugs,
Gina

Oh my, this is darling. I love the pink and white; it is so crisp and clean. Your colouring rocks!

By any chance, can you send the snow storm to Hawaii? (hee, hee) That would be the greatest blessing of all. Purdy, purdy pleeeeeeeeeeeeease!

Anyhow Risa, I love your shaker cards. I will have to try it, real soon.
