Using a layered set of heart dies, choose one that fits well inside the borders of the pink card front so you have plenty of room for foam tape. Place it on the pink card front so you have room for your sentiment and room on either side of the heart for your frame. Tape it in place and run it through your die cutting machine. When you are stamping background paper, start with your largest images and work to your smallest.
In order, I stamped: Full of hearts stamp (hearts within a heart) with Red Velvet ink from Gina K Saponaria stamped with Stampin’ Up Berry Burst Double Hearts stamped with Gina K Bubblegum Pink Heart Dust stamped with Color Box Rich Razzleberry After stamping the first large stamps, I put clear embossing powder on them, and heat set them. After each additional stamping, I heat embossed with more clear embossing powder.
Put tear tape or glue on the back of the heart cut out and around the edges of the pink front, and place a piece of acetate (clear plastic) on the tear tape to glue it in place. Make sure your acetate covers the opening completely, or you’ll have shaker pieces come out. I opened the red card base and glued the back flap of the pink card base to the inside left side of the red card base. The pink part with the heart should close over the red layer when finished. I put a lot of foam tape along the edges of the heart and on the edges of the card….make sure the foam has enough height that your shaker components will shake, and also so that the foam has no gaps in it. I put my shaker components on the red left side of the card base so all I have to do is close the pink heart side on top of it. Make sure your shaker pieces are in the center of the red layer and if you want, glue some down so they will always be showing in the window.

I also had some enamel colored dots in my stash that I added that glued to the background and I don’t remember where I bought them, sorry.
Once all of the shaker components are inside your card, you should make sure that you rub your embossing pouch around the inside of the foam tape so it reduces it’s stickiness…If you end up getting any glue on your acetate, use an alcohol pad to wipe it and then use a damp rag to wipe off the remaining alcohol/glue residue that remains. Shut the card carefully so the shaker components don’t shift around. I then made a frame to cover the fact that you could see the foam tape inside the heart. I used one size larger than the opening and one size smaller than the opening dies and cut red cardstock with them. This will make a larger frame and cover the inside of the heart that you don’t want to see. I used my original frame and the heart I cut from the larger frame I made, and glued them inside the left side of the card. I used a Happy Valentine’s Day die and cut the red cardstock with it and ran it through my Xyron machine. Link: https://tinyurl.com/yynlccyv
To get rid of any excess adhesive, Xyron makes an adhesive eraser…Here’s a link to it: https://tinyurl.com/uwvu4ql I had a heart border die that I cut out and attached to the back right edge of the red card base. Inside the card, I added a sentiment from Rubbernecker Stamps from a set called Freehand Phrases stamped with Gina K’s Black Amalgam Ink. To finish the card, I added some black heart washi tape along the seam on the right side of the inside of the card, and on the envelope. I stamped the Made by Sandy Parker stamp on the back. I bought this stamp at Stampanda and it’s called a square address stamp named Molly. Use a coupon you can find online for a big discount
