Your Heart is One in a Million–MFT January Hits & Highlights

Falling in love definitely causes a rattle and hum in your heart, so it’s only appropriate that your love-themed cards feature a shaker heart to honor that feeling. This month, we’ve challenged our designers to create shaker cards featuring hearts — big hearts, mini hearts, balloon hearts, and multi-hearts...there are so many options available in the shop we know they will blow us away with the variety and creativity they bring to the challenge. Are you feeling the love? Us too!

I chose to use the Peek-a-Boo Striped Heart Die-namics for my card today. I’ve always loved this die and haven’t shown it enough attention lately. To begin, I cut the die from Sweet Tooth card stock and sponged the card front with Berrylicious dye ink then heat embossed the sentiment from Sweet Nothings Stamp Set with Silver Pearl embossing powder. I created my shaker element with an acetate window, 1/8” Scor-Tape, foam tape, and 4mm sequins in Aquamarine, Pink Blush, Pink Peonies, & Purple Pansies along with Silver Shimmer Seed Beads.

Here’s another view so you can see the sentiment better—it shows up well IRL, but not so much in the photo. When all that was done I popped the card front up on foam tape on a Sweet Tooth card stock base and added Mini Rolled Roses cut from Sweet Stack Paper Pack and Fab Foliage cut from Blu Raspberry card stock and finished of with some enamel dots.

And there you have it for this month’s
