LUV YOU Tree Carved Heart Shaker Card

This card can be for Valentine's Day or other Love occasion. Used a stamp I bought at Michaels in after Valentine's Day sale. Had bought this stamp last yr and returned it because there were flaws in the stamp. This stamp did not have the flaws.

I think my making shaker cards have improved since I now use foam w/ adhesive backing and stack 2 of them to keep the shaker pieces inside before putting the plastic piece on. Made the shaker pieces using a Die-Namics sequins die. Recycled plastic from a pkg. 

Supplies List

adhesive: Scotch ATG 
Die-Namics: die - Sequins
embossing: Darice Woodgrain emb folder
ink:  Memento - Lady Bug, Rose Bud
other: foam with adhesive backing - used 2 pieces stacked
machine:  Sizzix
paper:  scrapbook - DCWV spring mat stack   cardstock - pink glitter, white, Kraft
recycle: plastic from a pkg for shaker part
Spellbinder: die - Nest Classic Heart
stamp  - Recollections - tree, Recollections Valentine - sentiment
tools: MISTI
