Wedding shaker card.

This wedding shaker card has been made for our niece and new nephew...


After making the top layer, I cut out a large heart and edged it with a scalloped heart frame.
I glued some clear acetate to the back of this, then glued foam up to & around the outside edges of this heart to create the shaker section in the middle. I die cut a couple of Heart of Hearts so that I could use the smaller pieces in the shaker along with some teeny stars too. I glued the patterned paper to this to enclose the shaker element, then glued the whole piece to a card blank. I finished by gluing 'Mr & Mrs' to the clear window.

Supplies:
'Decadent Damask' embossing folder and 'Mr & Mrs' die - Sara Davies' Signature Collection, Together Forever.
Patterned papers - Raspberry Road Designs (Mr & Mrs set).
Scalloped heart die - Marianne die CR1225
'shaker' hearts - Impression Obsession 'Heart of Hearts' die.
Teeny acetate sequin stars.

I'd like to enter this card at:
Simon Says Stamp (wednesday challenge)- it's hip to be square
Die Cuttin Divas - anything goes
As You Like It - favourite card base and why : 6" square card base, because it's a good size card and I can get 2 cards out of one sheet of 12x12 card stock.
