Framed Shaker Card

Something fun and different.  That is what I wanted the Valentine cards to be this year.  I have been fascinated by shaker cards.  I made a couple but wanted to try to make one with a frame after I received this beautiful heart frame file by Bird for my Silhouette.

After working on this, I now know what not to do and what to do differently next time but it still turned out cute.  The window box is within the rectangle of the frame.  The box is then attached to the white folded cardstock. This way there is a gap between the hearts part of the border and the base.  I like that but next time I will size the cardstock and make the fold so that there is nothing behind the hearts.
The image is a pre-colored Dearie Dolls digital stamp.  I used some Gelly Roll Clear Star on the printed hearts and to outline the word Valentine.  Besides sequins, I threw in some of the hearts that were cut from the frame, adding some sparkle to those also.
