Shake it, Shake it, shake it

I got a burst of energy this afternoon, and decided to check in with the SCS challenge.  They want to see shaker cards : )



 I should have looked up a tutorial just to refresh myself, especially with my cold....I made this card pretty difficult, but did not have to throw it out.
  I did not add the transparency sheet to the base level, I added the foam tape 1st....  So, I added the transparency on top of the foam tape, then added another layer of foam tape....why not.
 I used Worn Lipstick, Raspberry and Candied Apple Distress Oxide inks on white card.  I have a 3D embossing folder of hearts.  I tapped Candied apple Distress Oxide ink onto the surface and ran the card through, then ran the card through without the folder to flatten it.  I added Raspberry ink to the folder and ran it through again.
  The heart die cut is a Memory Box die. The love die is by Concord and 9th.  The sentiment is Simon Says Stamps. The DP on the die is from MME called 'Mad'.

 I have to say this is one of the cards that really does look better IRL!

Challenges:
Die Cut Divas- something new- the love die and the sentiment stamp
Happy Little Stampers- AG Dies
Let's Craft and Create- Option Love is in the Air

The embossed distress oxide layer is soooo pretty! I always find shakers hard too. Yours looks lovely.

I love shaker cards, Shelly, but have very little luck making them. Yours is magnificent! That narrow window you made from the sentiment. Very creative. :-D
