A Valentine’s Day Shaker Card

It seems like I get to scrap more for Valentine’s Day than I do for just about any other holiday.  It’s a more calm time of year so I have more free time to work on projects (plus there is some cute Valentine stuff out there!).

I made this card to share on the gel-a-tins blog yesterday and I wanted to be sure to share it here on my blog as well.  I have missed scrapping and having more things to share!

The first thing that I did was stamp some of the small hearts from the A Hundred Hearts set onto some white paper with Versamark ink.  I made three of them and embossed one with the Cherry scented gelly powder, one with the Hawaiian Breeze gelly powder and one with the plumeria gelly powder.  My scraproom smelled so good while I was working on this card 🙂

The shaker box is madde from layers of foam adhesive that I made with my Xyron machine.  I cut the heart for the top out from a shape that I drew, and I used pinking shears because I thought it was cute.  I used papers from a little American Crafts stack I picked up at Target and the other items on the card are Stampin’ Up inks, a Jenni Bowlin Fiskars punch, twine by The Twinery, ribbon by May Arts, and heart sequins by Queen and Co.

I also threw some beads in there for a little more sparkle in the shaker.  This took a little bit to put together (I didn’t start out with a real plan for the shaker), but I LOVE how it turned out!  I hope you’re inspired to make a little something with your gel-a-tin stamps this week!
