Valentine's Day Shaker Card | Foiling With Stencils

Valentine's Day is going to be here before we know it, and never has it been a better time to let those you love know how much you love them! Today I'm sharing a Valentine's Day Shaker Card that features a background created by foiling with stencils.

I actually began this card by creating the shaker piece. I die cut a piece of pink paper from the Floral Paper Pad using the Heartfelt Die and then used the same die to cut a double sided adhesive foam sheet to create the shaker box. Next, I cut a transparency to size and adhered it to the backside of the die cut paper to create the shaker window. I then adhered this to the foam shaker box.

Once the shaker was completed, I poured a mix of sequins and beads onto the card front in the area where the shaker opening would be located. I then adhered the shaker to the card front. To embellish the shaker, I added a die cut banner using a slightly darker shade of pink from the Floral Paper Pad and inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I then added the gold metallic "love" die cut using the Inspirational Life Sentiments Dies.

Now let me share with you how I created the foiled background. I began with a flat card front and placed the Scattered Hearts Stencil on top of the paper and used Mint Tape to hold it in place. I then applied Deco Foil Transfer Gel over the stencil using a palette knife. Once there was a thin layer of gel covering the stencil design, I removed the stencil, washed it and set the card front to the side to dry.

Once the gel was dry, I covered it with a piece of Therm O Web Pink Melon Deco Foil and ran it through my Heidi Swapp Minc. After the foiling, I added some subtle stamping using the script stamp from the Tim Holtz Ledger Script and Field Notes Stamp Sets using Tattered Rose Distress Oxide. I then inked the edges with some Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and for checking out how I created this Valentine's Day Shaker Card and created a background by foiling with stencils.
