Happy Valentine's Day, everyone! Since my last post with Karen Burniston's Designer Challenge team, we've regrouped as a casual group of crafty friends called Paper Pros and are participating in a monthly, no-stress challenge. I'm so excited that the team is still together and happy to get to work with such a talented group of friends!
This month our challenge is Shake it Up. We all created cards with either a shaker or some other type of movement. I'm still on my addiction to shakers, so I used Karen's Hearts Pivot die to created a three panel card using some pretty papers from Prima. You might remember I used this fabulous technique from Summer Hills-Painter a couple years ago, but with the Butterfly Pivot. I love that it looks so complicated, but is really quite easy!
I created the shaker portion by using the two smaller heart dies to cut two layers from fun foam. I adhered them, then covered the top with a clear piece of acetate cut from the larger heart die. The final layer was another frame, this time cut from pretty paper. I added dots of Platinum Stickles to decorate the edges. I filled the heart with pearl beads and sequins, then glued a backing on.
