Hot to make a cute valentine card with gnomes and a shaker design

Valentine’s Day is the perfect occasion to show your loved ones how much you care about them. One great way to do this is by giving them a handmade card, especially one that features adorable gnomes in a Shaker design.

Todays tutorial will show you how to make a cute Valentine card with gnomes and a shaker design. This card, features some adorable gnomes that add a touch of whimsy and charm to the project. Incorporating these little creatures into a shaker card design can make for a truly fun and eye-catching card that is sure to bring a smile to anyone’s face. Kendra, one of our new Design Team members, is so excited to share her first Brass and Bliss card with you on the blog!! She absolutely loves shaker cards!! When Kendra received the NEW ‘5702D-Heart Background Die’ she knew she had to make a fun shaker with it!!

Steps to recreate this card:

  • Kendra started her card by creating an A2 sized card base.
  • Next, she cut the ‘5702D-Heart Background Die‘ from white cardstock. Save the hearts cut from the background to use later.
  • Next, she trimmed a piece of the swirly heart paper from the NEW ‘2201Heart Strings Paper Pad‘ to use behind the die cut. She used a blending brush to ink the paper with Crimson, ‘Color Fuse #4‘ and Blush, ‘Color Fuse #5‘ inks.

  • To prepare ‘5702D-Heart Background Die‘ to be a shaker card, start by adding foam tape and acetate to the back of the die. (With fun backgrounds like this, Kendra sometimes like to add foam tape to certain sections to add separate sequins. As seen in the photo below, she added foam around three random hearts)
  • Add sequins! (Kendra’s favorite part!!) Add sequins to the three separate areas and then add sequins to the other main area.
  • Remove backing from foam and adhere the pattern paper.
