SHAKER LOVE

The challenge word for this week at CAS-ology is "clear".  Also planned on entering at Paper Players "clean and simple valentine" but procrastinated too long and missed the deadline.



I wanted to make a shaker card with the MFT "love die" but since the ends were open, the only way I could figure out how to do that was to enclose it in a frame.  After that the card came together quickly.  I used my Fuse tool to create the pocket for the sequins from Lucy Abrams in the Hero Arts January monthly kit.  Added the little gold hearts and mounted it all on soft stone card.  

I'm also adding this to LOVE group on flickr whose challenge this month is "new beginnings" - the love die is new to me as are the sequins.

Thanks for stopping by and really enjoy all your kind comments.  Betty

  1. Really nice shaker! Aren't they fun and I think this one is wonderful. I have the fuse tool for months and haven's used it yet. I am inspired and it may come out of the plastic packaging soon.
    Do you like it? Love your blog, too! Happy to see you are also a reader and share your favorite books. I think I may pick up "The Drowning" as my next read.
