Heart of Gold

Hello there! I'm up on the Ink Road Blog again with this fun shaker card. Let's take a look. 
Shaker cards are so much fun to make and especially fun to send. Let's get right in to how I put this card together. 
I started with some Tim Holtz Distress inks in Dried Marigold, Spiced Marmalade, and Picked Raspberry. I tried to match the gorgeous Sunset Shimmer sequin mix from Neat and Tangled. I used the Heart of Gold Die from Neat and Tangled to cut a heart into the color blended panel and once again out of some gold glittered cardstock and removed the triangle pieces from the gold heart. I went around the back side of the heart (of the blended panel) with some Scor-Tape and adhered a piece of acetate to make the shaker window. 
I die cut the blended panel using Avery Elle's Wonky Stitches die for more of a finished look. I doubled up my foam tape and cut it in half to make (roughly) 1/4 strips to go around the heart and around the perimeter of the blended panel. 
I flipped the blended panel over and carefully glued the gold glittered die cut heart onto the acetate. I flipped the panel back over and put the sequins in. I hold the panel up so I can see if I'm happy with how they look inside the window and to see if I have enough sequins before I adhere the panel onto the card base. I piled the sequins onto the card base and then adhered the panel over them. I used the Heart of Gold stamp set from Neat and Tangled for the sentiment. I masked off the word gold with a Post-it note and gold heat embossed the word "gold" afterward. I used the Distress Inks to match my blending onto the edge of the sentiment strip. I ran the edge of the sentiment panel through the Wonky Stitches die to bring the card together and cut a strip of that gold glittered cardstock for a peek-a-boo of bling.
