Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.

This week's idea is a Valentine Easel Shaker Card.

Close up of sweet stamped image

Card folded for mailing

Card opened

What I used

Stamps - Whipper Snapper Designs - (MY782) Tropical
Sentiment - Penny Black-From the heart (30-207)
Paper - Pebbles
Stencil - Memory Box (88506) Texture Rings and Puddles
Border punch - EK Success
Heart die - Sizzix (657021) Hearts Primitive #3
Spellbinders die - (S4-346) Labels Twenty-Two

How it;s done

Card base is 41/8 x 51/2 inches
folded tent style

open card and fold the front in (valley fold)
to create easel.

Line the inside with coordinating designer paper

Cut 3/4 inch from bottom of the front of the card
and adhere border, so that the inside designer paper
peeks out at the bottom of the card when closed.

Die cut your colored stamped design. Die cut a piece of acetate.
 Die cut a frame with the same die, using the one you cut the stamped image
with and the next smaller one in the set. Adhere the acetate die cut to the frame
 Adhere foam tape around the frame making sure not to leave any edge not taped.
Place small amount of small micro beads or glitter on the stamped image
and adhere the frame over it to create the shaker.

Adhere the Shaker to the bottom portion of the card only.
Adhere the sentiment inside using pop dots, so that the
easel will stand alone.  Decorate the front with small hearts
and rhinestones.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day.  Until later.....
