Hi everyone, Barbara back today with an easy Valentine's 'shaker' card using white 'hemp' .

Start by cutting a heart shape from a square of white hemp, and a piece of white foam.

Lay a piece of acetate on the wrong side of the card and adhere.

Next, attach the foam cut-out to the acetate, making a 'window'.

Place your beads/sequins etc. in the 'well'......

Now you need to cut a smaller piece of white hemp and secure over the top of the loose sequins.

Flip the card over to the 'right' side and lightly stencil a few hearts with distress inks, in both corners.

Die-cut the LOVE word 3 times and lay them on top of each other. Attach to the acetate. Finish off by heat-embossing a tiny sentiment and attaching.

Well, that's it for now. Lots of people stay clear of shaker cards, thinking they are difficult.....hope this tutorial proves otherwise.

Back soon,
