MFT Hits and Highlights...

Another round of Hits and Highlights starts right now!  MFT has a new challenge for us....

Falling in love definitely causes a rattle and hum in your heart, so it’s only appropriate that your love-themed cards feature a shaker heart to honor that feeling. This month, we’ve challenged our designers to create shaker cards featuring hearts — big hearts, mini hearts, balloon hearts, and multi-hearts...there are so many options available in the shop we know they will blow us away with the variety and creativity they bring to the challenge. Are you feeling the love? Us too!

I created one giant heart shaker for today's challenge...


The Hearts Entwined Die worked perfectly for this card.  I die cut the hearts from a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card front.  I used the large negative and added acetate to the back of the panel.  Next, I die cut the hearts again in red cardstock and then added depth to it by ink blending along the bottom in a darker red. I sprayed the back of this intricate die and added it to the acetate window.  Next, I built a shaker box and added the red sequin to the box.  I closed the box with a piece of peach cardstock.  This way the red sequin and the red heart die really pop.  Last, I added the simple sentiment to the card front and finished it off with a tiny red heart die from Tag Builder 5.
