Grateful Heart Shaker Card by Julie Schinkel

Hi everyone! I'm on the Bee Arty blog today sharing a quick and easy shaker card created with the "Grateful Heart" collection.  Here is the completed card plus a quick tutorial showing how it was created.

 To create this card, cut a piece of white cardstock down to 5"x5" square. Cut the dark spotted quarter from the Heart 12x12 paper and trim down to 5.75"x5.75" square. This will leave a 1/4 inch border on the base of the card.

Next die cut six of the "wreath" from white cardstock using the String Leaves Die Set. Adhere five pieces together to build up dimension. Put the sixth die cut aside for later.

Die cut another wreath from a scrap piece copy paper and trim off the excess so that you're left with just the circle frame. This will ensure your acetate is the right size. Adhere to a piece of acetate and trim down.

Cut out the doily on the left side from the Gathers 12x12 paper. Colour the flower with pencils or alcohol markers of your choice. I've used colours to match the collection but you can use any colour combination for this project. I've added another flower doily in the photo below to show the difference when coloured. Adhere to the layered wreath frame with strong glue. When dry add in sequins/glitter of your choice, adhere the acetate layer then the sixth wreath die cut and adhere the embellishment to the centre of the card base.

 Cut out the banner from the Bonus Sheet, colour with the same pens/pencils to match the flower. Stamp a sentiment and adhere with foam tape to complete the card.
