January My Monthly Hero Countdown: Idea #4 + giveaway!

MMH Countdown to Creativity

The first My Monthly Hero kit of 2016 is quite fun. It has so many possibilities to create different cards for Valentines and beyond. One of the things I loved the most about this kit is that it has all that you need to create shaker cards:

For this card, I created a front panel from layering paper (Carnation color), which is included in the kit. I die cut a heart shaped window, and a pretty heart shaped frame too. It’s easy with the dies in the kit, they next inside each other for perfect alignment.

Then, I adhered a piece of acetate behind the window with tape. After that, I die cut a rectangular panel from a foam sheet, and I die cut the heart shaped window. I adhered the piece behind the front panel. This foam piece gives the space you need to put the yummy sequins that are also included. I also die cut some tiny hearts and I stamped tiny sentiments to put them inside the shaker along with the sequins. The little heart dies are available as an add-on to this month’s kit.

Next, I cut a piece of layering paper (Punch color) and I used it as the back of the shaker window. Then I adhered the whole front panel over a base card. At the end, I white embossed a long sentiment over a black cardstock strip and I adhered it onto the heart with foam tape.
