Valentine's Day Shaker Card | Zig Clean Color Markers | Neat & Tangled

Hi Friends~

Today I wanted to share with you this shaker card featuring Neat and Tangled's stamp set Favorite Little Nut.  This is an adorable set and perfect for Valentine's Day.  You could also use this set all year long too!!  

I love these illustrations by Elena Roussakis!  She's got such a fun and sweet style to her images and love the fonts also that she creates with her sentiments!

For my squirrel I decided to color with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.  These are great to achieve a fast water color look to your images!

 I also stamped several times one of the acorn images, and created my own shaker bits to add inside the window, along with some die cut hearts.  My red panel is a piece of Pure Poppy card stock from PaperTrey Ink.  This red is one of my favorites!  I die cut my card stock with a stitched rectangle die from Mama Elephant and created my window using MFT's Peek a boo window die.

I added two layers of foam adhesive to ensure my shaker elements would move around well.  Before putting together my shaker card, on the front of the focal panel, I stamped my sentiment from the same Neat and Tangled set, You Are My Favorite!

Once I was happy with how that stamped, I put my shaker card all together.  I wanted to add a bit more silver into my card to tie in my shaker bits, so I die cut a piece of MFT silver sparkle card stock with one of my Hero Arts Infinity Dies.  Love this set!!  So handy to have!

For the inside, I stamped another sentiment from the same set, I am nuts for you, which I felt appropriate for my shaker theme.

Thank you all for stopping by today, and I hope you have a wonderful Valentine's Day with your loved ones and friends!
