Hi, Ivy Pe here with Valentine’s Day around the corner I thought it would be fun to make this cute Hedgehog Valentine Shaker Card.
Hedgehog Valentine Shaker Card Steps
Cut a card panel to 4 x 5-inch in light pink cardstock. Place it in an embossing folder and run it through a die-cutting and embossing machine.
In order to cut a shaped window through both the A2-size card base (4.25 x 5.5-inch) and panel, I temporarily secured both and die-cut with a heart etched die.
I die-cut a piece of acetate sheet with a larger size heart die to cover the card panel window. Adhered it with the E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser to the back of the card panel. Then applied the layer to line up on the card base. Using the same heart die, die-cut another acetate shape and set aside.
Let’s make a heart frame. Nest the larger size heart die with the heart die that was used for the window and secure the dies with washi tape. Place on top of a red cardstock piece and die-cut through the machine.
With the second acetate heart shape, adhere to the back of the red heart frame with the E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser. Using a paper trimmer, cut 1/8-inch strips from the 3D Foam Creative Sheets and apply them on the back of the heart frame. To lift up more, I used two layers of the strips. Set aside.
Hedgehog Shaker Fillers
Stamp two hedgehog images and color them with watercolor and center them on the acetate window of the card base. Filled with pretty sequins and close the shaker feature with the red heart frame. Make sure the hearts are lined up with the card base. Since I had the sequins out, randomly add them on the card front with Adhesive Dots Micro for extra sparkle!
I also die-cut a small heart shape out of the 3D Foam Creative Sheets and foiled it with the Metallic Transfer Foil in red from the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit. Once secured on the acetate, simply remove the top liner of the heart, place the foil (color side UP) and rub with fingertips to transfer the color to the foil. It’s so easy to do and requires NO tools.
Finishing Up the Card
Using another 1/8-inch strip cut from the 3D Foam Creative Sheets, I made a red border on the bottom of the card. Repeat the same foiling steps as mentioned above.
For the sentiment, die-cut a banner shape in dark pink cardstock and the words, love you, in red cardstock. To adhere words to the banner, I used the Adhesive Sheets 4 x 6-inch. It’s perfect for those intricate designs. Crafty Tape Foam Tape Black was used to secure the banner to the card front with a little lift 🙂 Lastly, add a small heart sprinkled with white glitter that I die-cut from a 3D Foam Creative Sheet.
Isn’t this Hedgehog Valentine Shaker Card just adorable?
