Love Bunnies

This is my post at the
Dies R Us blog today.

Hi there!  Here we are just a month away from Valentines Day
and time to think of getting all those Valentines made 
for your loved ones.

One of the big trends in 2015 was shaker cards
and you know what, I truly believe they are here to stay!
I love shaker cards, do you?
They are super easy to make with all the fabulous dies
available to us!

I started with two 4" panels cut from Pearlized Esse white card stock.
This card stock has a nice texture and sheen, so pretty!

From one of the panels, I used
Cheery Lynn Designs Heart To Heart Doily set
to cut a negative.
 (I can use the heart die cut on another card later).

I ran strips of foam tape around the entire heart after
I had adhered a clear card stock over the heart.
(A little hint is to remove the tape covering the foam
first, this way it is easier to manipulate) 

Behind the heart opening I added 
Impression Obsession Heart Stems
cut from a Red Metallic Mirror paper.

Two little 'love bunnies' were added using
Impression Obsession Mini Bunnies.

Before adhering the heart down, I sprinkled a few
red sequins to the back panel in the heart area.
Then I carefully lined up both panels,
and the shaker part was done!

The word "love' was added to the front panel
using Cheery Lynn Designs  Love.

I wanted to keep this card as CAS as I could
and had debated adding a bow...I decided I liked it as is!

Make sure to visit here Monday-Friday for daily inspiration
and to see lots of the dies in use.
