PTI Heart Hop


This month the Papertrey Ink blog hop's theme is HEARTS!  We were to make make a card with hearts, keeping someone special in mind, write a message on the inside, and then send it right out.

I chose to make my first shaker card. I've had the "Shaker & Sprinkles" kit and used it for other things...just not a shaker until this weekend ((gasp)) !

I used some bright and cheerful papers by Echo Park called "Splendid Sunshine."


Split the sentiment so that part was inside the heart, and part outside.  Added some of the mini pink sequins from the kit and some hearts cut from the same background paper.


The "scatter" was cut from black cardstock then coated with Wink of Stella glitter pen.  Two mini adhesive hearts and some baker's twine to frame the sentiment.

I know just who to send this to...someone who has been making some fabulous handmade gifts for the family to keep us all warm and snuggly this winter!  If you are reading this, THANK YOU!

Thanks for stopping by today!
