Love Is In the Air + Use Red - SSS Monday Challenge 1/25/16

Simon Says Stamp Challenge for Monday 1/25/16 is. . . . 

Love Is In the Air + Use Red!

 I got my SSS February card kit and it came with cute little red heart confetti and I recently watched a video on You Tube about doing a see through shaker card. . . . so shaker card it is!

My Card. . . . 

I used the red paper that came in the card kit to create a top fold card. I used the white card stock to create my front panel. I then layered some silver sparkle tape from a previous card kit and sheet of Lawn Fawn Let's Polka in the Dark mini heart pattern in Werewolf.

I attached all the layers to the card and then die cut my window. (Side note: It was super hard! I don't know if my Cuttlebug plates are warped or what but the top and bottom of my window didn't want to cut, I had to run it through with a thick piece of watercolor paper under it. Next time I will cut the panel and the card separately.)

So why make a see through  shaker? So you can put something on the inside of the card and be able to see it  from the front! The card kit came with a set of love stickers so I picked one that would fit my frame and positioned it at the top so that it wouldn't be completely covered by the confetti that was going to be in the shaker. 

I cut a window frame, once in white for the bottom and once in the Lawn Fawn Let's Polka in the Dark mini heart pattern in Werewolf for the top. Basically what I did was make a little shaker that I added to the front of my card. I cut some clear packaging into two circles with my dies so they would fit my frame. I started with my white frame, layered the clear packaging on top, added two layers of foam adhesive, the one I used was kinda thin so I doubled it up. Put in those cute heart confetti and some silver sequins. I attached my other clear packaging to the back of the Lawn Fawn Frame and then placed that on top of the foam adhesive. Then I attached that over the window, it was really easy to place since I could see through the shaker.

I used a few more of the stickers that came in the kit, hearts and an arrow, and I just love enamel dots so I threw a few of them on there also!

See you next time!
