Lacy Heart Shaker Card

Shaker Card
Shaker cards are such fun interactive cards and relatively simple to make!The very first card I shared on this blog at a time when I had no idea about die cutting , stamping , embossing and all our sophisticated paper crafting techniques is this  shaker card made for my daughter's 3 yr old friend! Do have a peep at it ...I am  curious to know what you think of it!

           Fast forward 5 yrs down the lane and here is a card created by stamping  and heat embossing a beautiful background stamp[ gifted to me by Shalini Mittal of Crafters Corner] and inking it with Distress inks.Made the "Heart Shaker" using a Nellie Snellen die and added a lacy Poppy Stamps swirly border die cut on it before adding the acetate/transparency.Here is the tutorial link to how to make a Shaker Card.

           There are tiny pink hearts and pearls inside the heart which rattle gently on shaking the card!The "I love you" and porcelain white heart with wings were made with white hot glue and a silicon mold.[Here is the tutorial " Porcelain embellishment tutorial ]
Heat embossed flowers
           The flowers and leaves were made by stamping and heat embossing the Heartfelt creations sun kissed fleur on vellum and die cutting it with the matching die set.Inked the flower centers with the same distress inks used on the heat embossed background .Added a favorite Sue wilson lacy bow topped with a pearly flower.The pearl sprays are handmade and the final touch is a little bit of netting over the floral bloom!

        I was strongly influenced by the mood board at BGC to add all the lacy elements right from the lacy background stamp to the lacy heart, the lacy borders on the card, the lacy bow ,the white net and  the real lace!I loved the yellow-white- pink colors on the tiered cake and tried to keep the same pastel colors on my card.The sprinkles on the doughnuts inspired me to add the shaker element...dont you just love to shake a bottle of sprinkles when you decorate a cake!And of course how could one not fail to be inspired by the beautiful creamy white flowers in the mood board!

I hope you like my lacy card.
