Shaking Hearts

Hello, Hello! 

I've been prepping for Valentine's Day, making masculine cards (I work at a school; most of the teachers buy Valentines for the hubbies/boy friends).  Once in a while you come across something that you just have to have.  This MFT die was that something for me recently~

When I saw it, I immediately thought 'shaker card'.  And I don't even like to make shaker cards, lol. 

I cut multiple dies from scrap white paper, stacked 7 of them and glued them together, then adhered a piece of acetate over the top. the top white panel was die cut and the negative die was added to the top of the stack/acetate.  I colored a select few pieces of hearts with a Copic marker and then glued them in place.  The last part of the front of the card was a black die cut that was glued over top of all. 
On the back side, I added my shaker bling followed by a piece of patterned paper to enclose it all.  The entire unit was then adhered to a black card base.  The sentiment is from a retired MFT set and is heat embossed on vellum. 

I am linking up to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge which is featuring MFT products.  The challenge is 'Have a Heart'. 

I am also linking up to Die Cutting Divas- the challenge is '3D'. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fabulous rest of the week!
