You Are My Happy with Crafty Meraki

Hello everyone!  I am super excited to share my very first blog post here as a member of the Crafty Meraki design team!  Since Valentine’s Day is fast-approaching, I figured it’s only appropriate to share a fun Valentine’s Day Card!

For my card today, I am showcasing the CM Valentine Stamp set and CM Valentine Coordinating Dies along with the Outside the Box Slimline Die

To make the card, I started by stamping the images on some Neenah Solar White Card Stock. I colored the images in with alcohol markers and used the coordinating dies to cut them all out.

Next, I prepared the slimline background panel by inking up some Strathmore Bristol smooth white card stock with distress oxide inks.  I also used a stencil from my stash for added interest.  I cut some leftover stamp packaging and added some tape on all sides and adhered the 3 sides first to create a pocket.  I added some confetti as my shaker element and adhered the top to close the shaker.  I love that even though this is a flat shaker card, the shaker bits inside move freely creating a fun, interactive element.

I die-cut the Outside the Box Slimline Die on some Neenah solar white card stock and adhered on the focal panel with foam tape.  I added the colored images on the foreground with liquid glue.

The sentiment was stamped with Versamark ink on some black card stock that I heat-set with my heating tool.  I finished the design  by using some white gel pen to add some dots and stars for added texture and interest.  Here’s another look at the card:

I hope you like my card today and got inspired!  To be able to purchase the items I featured today, click on the “highlighted” products to take you to the online store . Thanks for stopping by!
