Mad About You Valentine Shaker Card


Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  This Mad Hatter Shaker Valentine is a fun way to let someone know, "Hey, I'm Mad About You!" this Valentine's Day!    

Did you notice how the Mad Hatter's black checked trousers are echoed by the 3/8" Black Houndstooth Bow Cluster?  Any time you can repeat a pattern in a card design, you're going to have a win on your hands.  

Top that bow with a little Black Baker's Twine to add even more fulness and texture.  I also wrapped it around the stem of the pocket watch shaker element.  Little touches like this add such wonderful detail when you are making a card. 

Black Baker's Twine makes it easy to attach this cluster of metal embellishments, too.  Simply loop folded twine through the brad openings on the door plate, then wrap the loose ends back behind the card front.  Then you can also add a key and teacup at the top with a little bow and flower to really dress things up.

Using black ribbon is a great way to "ground" a mix of colors like the ones in this card.  It sort of ties them all together and makes them sing in harmony.  And that, my friends, is always a good thing!

Wishing you all a very Happy Valentine's Day!
