Shake it up for Valentine's Day!

I love cards that have movement! Shaker cards are so easy with Washi tape, and this card from January's Stamp Club makes a great Valentine!

We used a sheet of printed paper from the Stacked with Love DSP stack, then punched a lovely bunch of confetti using the Confetti Hearts Border Punch. Push your confetti into a little pile to make it easier to contain it while you apply the Window Sheet. We live in the high desert, so it's really important here to use the Embossing Buddy on the Window Sheet, before applying it to the card. Really, really important. Because static is the enemy of a good shaker card, my friend!

Attach the Window Sheet to the card with super cute Washi Tape (Stacked with Love here), making sure to burnish it really well. My clubbers, dear friends that they are, all said, "Why can't you just say 'rub it really hard?' "  Because I needed the instructions to fit on one page, that's why!

After the Window Sheet is secure (burnish it one more time, just to make me feel better, mkay?), add your finishing touches. I love the new set You Plus Me--so many great ways to show affection, and not just for Valentine's Day! We stamped the medallion image in Calypso Coral and die cut it with a Starburst framelit. Love the white border!

So drag out your Washi tape and make a fun shaker card this week!
