My inspiration for you is a shaker card...full of heart!
Perfect as a Valentine, Anniversary or Birthday card for that special someone.

"A hundred hearts..."

The card background is composed of 2 cardstock layers cut with the Grand Label One dies.  Before adhering them together, I cut a circle in the center of the white cardstock so that the pink under layer would show through. 

I printed the sentiment on a scrap of white, cut it out using a heart shaped die, centered and adhered it to the pink background.  Next I cut the heart bordered circle, keeping the little heart cut outs to use in the shaker pouch.  I cut an identical circle from the center of this piece and added the shaker pouch.   Then, I sprinkled the tiny hearts carefully under the shaker pouch and adhered the pouch in place.  Lastly, I adhered the heart border around the outside of the shaker pouch.

I embellished the card with a white bow made with my ever present Craft-Dee BowZ tool.  It helps create the most fabulous bows!  A few mulberry flowers and a vintage heart charm finish off the card.

Super way of using up the punched out pieces in your shaker! I don't think I would have thought of that, now I want to try making a shaker card too.

Gorgeous card, bow and flowers! Thanks so much for sharing and for the hop!

What a pretty card I love the bow with those little flowers . You make it so easy making shaker cards with the pouches. I made a couple for my grand daughters and used pop ups with transparencies it makes the cards heavy . Must look for the pouches for next time .
