Key To My Heart Shaker Card

Valentine’s Day is only 3 days away. And today I have a card to share with you, Key To My Heart shaker card.

When I saw the center panel step card, I was wondering if I could make a step card with shaker window as the center panel with a polaroid frame and the filler is not only sequins but also with die cut confetti. So, I went through my Silhouette library and AH-HA! I have them already, the step card, polaroid frame with love saying on it and love theme confetti. After that I went digging through my scrap stash to find the papers, cardstocks and everything to fill the shaker window.

And here is the card:

This shaker card is super easy to make using my Silhouette Cameo and Silhouette Studio Designer Edition Software.

First, I open Lori Whitlock’s Center Panel Step Card on Silhouette Studio Designer Edition software. I ungroup the cutting files. I did not use the artisan shape from the file. Replace it with the polaroid frame. Then I arrange the shapes and color them with the colors of the papers I want to cut. It is easy to remember which patter paper for which shape with colors. The pattern paper I used on this card is Heartstrings Paper Packet. I only used 1 paper because it is double-sided paper with cute pattern perfect for Valentine’s Day theme card. After I arranged the papers on the cutting mat, then I sent it to cut.

Then I put cut the card base, frame, keys and hearts.

I used one of the polaroid frames from The Cut Shoppe, resized it to fit on the front panel card. And for the shaker fillers, I used only the keys and hearts are from Sophie Gallo’s Love Confetti. I also resized the small enough to fit in side the shaker. For these shapes, I used White Daisy cardstock.

To create the shaker on the front panel, I used acetate plastic I saved from left over packing 🙂 This is one way of reuse or recycle boxes. I cut the plastic a little bit bigger than the inside rectangle of the polaroid frame, then I glued it on the frame using Tombow liquid glue. It dries clear and strong. And then adding some 3D foam around the rectangle to create the shaker.

When I added the keys, hearts and gold sequins in side the frame, I found out that I have put the acetate plastic and foam tape on the wrong side of the frame. There is no way to pull them off unless cut a new one. So, I added some Cranberry Baker’s Twine (retired) and a flair from Heartstrings Assortment to cover the mistake on the polaroid frame. And kindda like it this way, the flair looks like having a dove tail cut out 🙂
