Sending You All the Love in My Heart–MFT Color Challenge #111

Hi, all, I'm back with the latest MFT Color Challenge! Are you ready? Here’s this week’s color combo: Sweet Tooth, Gravel Gray, Red Hot, and Electric Red. All of the details about the color challenge are available on the MFT Challenge & Inspiration blog as well as in the weekly newsletter. The MFT Design Team will be on hand to provide plenty of inspiration to get you started.

Well, I *had* to do one more Valentine for Valentine’s DAY, didn’t I? I decided to make a shaker card using Entwined Hearts Die-namics and I started by stamping Romantic Script Background on my Sweet Tooth card stock card base with Gravel Gray dye ink. Next I cut my Sweet Tooth card stock card front with Entwined Hearts Die-namics and also a piece of Red Hot card stock. I removed the white and inserted the red in place and backed it with some clear acetate which held in in place and became my shaker window at the same time.

Then I created the shaker using foam tape, 6mm and 4mm Raspberry sequins—they fulfill the Electric Red requirement—Silver Shimmer seed beads, and some Pewter seed beads that are no longer available. I backed that with more clear acetate. This is the best way I’ve found to add an element to a card base and make sure it’s straight. Otherwise you have to put the upside down card base on top of the back of the shaker element and it’s impossible for me to get it straight! After that was done I heat embossed a sentiment from I Heart Celebrating Stamp set on Heavyweight Translucent Vellum cut with Slanted Sentiment Strips Die-namics to finish.

And there you have it! Remember, you can get all the details by visiting the
