Michele B. here today, sharing a shaker card using the Heart Throb Kit. I thought it would be fun to create a love themed card with two hearts, sharing a small overlapping shaker space in the center.
I first adhered as usual the foam heart frame on the left. Using the heart die from the kit, I cut and adhered a white heart to fit inside. Next, without removing the adhesive release paper from the back, I laid the second foam heart frame overlapping the first. Once I determined the perfect placement, I nipped the foam frame just to the left and right sides of the first heart in the two overlapping areas. By removing that bit of the frame in the two locations, the second heart retains its original shape once adhered. I then removed the release paper and adhered the second foam heart frame, carefully aligning the two pieces. I die-cut a second white heart, trimmed away that upper left area and inserted the remaining piece inside the second heart. Now the three individual areas are ready for those adorable toppings!
I carefully added pink, red and diamonds to the left heart with aqua, white and diamonds in the right and a small combination of all in the center. Before removing the adhesive release paper from the tops of the frames, I trimmed away the overlapping area from one of the pre-cut heart-shaped acetate pieces, using the foam frame as a guide. I trimmed carefully as I wanted the acetate to only cover about half of the width of the right heart border. That left the remaining half of the border to adhere the full acetate heart over the red-filled shaker and the center, keeping all toppings in place. When I was satisfied with the trimming of the acetate, I removed the release paper and adhered the two acetate pieces. Lastly, I glued a stitched border over each to cover the foam frames.
I used one of the kit stickers to complete the love sentiment then added a few enamel dots to finish the card.
