Paper Pro's Designer Challenge - SHAKE IT UP

Happy Valentine's Day, friends!

Karen Burniston's Designer Challenge Team was more than just a group of people who made cool things with amazing dies ... we were (and are) FRIENDS. We have continued to share cool things made with the same amazing dies - and we decided that we wanted to do another group challenge. Welcome to the first Paper Pro's Designer Challenge!

I am having so much fun with the 'scribble' dies from Stampin' Up and wanted to use the scribble heart on the card front. It (and the SU love word) were cut from red Stardream, a lovely heavy weight pearlized card stock.

I added Glitter Dots onto the heart and the black scalloped border for some sparkle.

Inside is the Anita Frames Pop-Up by Karen Burniston - and also the Hot Air Balloon Pop-Up (balloon only), as an embellishment on the right side of the card. I had planned on making a shaker on the left, but then saw these cute shaker heart embellishments in my stash and decided to use one for the shaker part of the challenge.

Whenever I give an Anita Frames Pop-Up card to someone, they turn it to view it from the top - so I took a photo showing that view as well. It looks very complicated, but a few quick folds (and Karen Burniston has a YouTube Video HERE) and it's done.

I added the die cut words 'Love You' on the left side and more Glitter Dots on the side scalloped borders.

It was fun to have another challenge with my former Designer Challenge team and we are hoping to make it a monthly occurrence!
