CCNS69: i heart u shaker card

Hi, I'm back with another shaker card!  I hope you are not too tired of them.  It's quite easy to take an element in a card to turn it into a shaker card or vice versa.  Here I used Spellbinders Heart Circles (on sale now in the Classy Cards 'n Such store) to make my frame.  I even saved some of the red hearts from the negative of the dies to use inside my shaker element.  I used both Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A and the stitched die from MFT Blueprint 13 for my layers.

The shaker element was made using foam and 1/8 Scor-tape to secure my layers.  I love my Scor-tape - it's so strong and easy to use and with shaker cards that might get lots of handling, you want a strong tape.  Before I adhered everything together, I added a silver heart element and glued it to the center of my back layer.  Out of the same SB Precious Metals Craft Foil, I die cut the letters i and u using Lawn Fawn's Quinn's lowercase alphabet dies.  Finally, I used my white gel pen to add some stitching detail to my heart doily to match the stitching around the edge of my card.
