My first shaker card


It's a shaker card!  Yea that is glitter there in the butterfly.  My boyfriend really likes butterflies so I made this valentine with that in mind.  It has some static in the glitter it looks like, so there is a little sticking but I think you can see the bulk of the glitter at the bottom :)
I got this idea from PaperTrey's Blog and really wanted to make it.  I don't yet have any PaperTrey supplies so I could not enter this there.  I wanted to make something with my Cricut, and for this project I learned that you cannot cut craft foam without a deep cut blade.  I also tried this the first time with zip dry glue, nope you really do need to use the sticker maker as they show in the blog.  Wow, the second one I made was so much better!  That is the one that I used.
