I stamped the large wreath image from the Heart Wreath stamp set with Raven Hybrid Ink and colored the image with alcohol markers. I colored each leaf individually with three different shades of green to give some depth and dimension to the image. I didn't add any shading to the leaves, but I think it turned out great! I die cut the image with the coordinating Heart Wreath die set and I LOVE that the die also cuts out the inside of the wreath! Perfect for creating a shaker card! I picked out a background patterned paper from the Love Birds 6x6 Paper Pack and trimmed down a piece small enough to fit behind my shaker window. There are a bunch of sentiments in the Heart Wreath stamp set and they all fit in the middle of the wreath. How perfect is that?! I stamped a sentiment with Raven Hybrid Ink onto the patterned paper and embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder. I used some clear sequins and foam tape to finish off my shaker element.
I wanted to add some subtle texture to my background and the new With All My Heart cover die is PERFECT! I LOVE to die cut it from white cardstock for a bit of texture and dimension behind a focal element. The die cuts panel with a stitched border that perfectly fits the front of an A2 card and also embosses a pattern into the background. It's gorgeous! I added my shaker element on the front of the With All My Heart panel to complete my card. I hope you love this look at the Open Hearts release from LDRS Creative!
