The Simon Says Stamp Tossed Hearts Background was stamped on two 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" panels of Hero Arts Pebble Cardstock with SSS Stone Ink. The Simon Says Stamp You Are Background was stamped over the heart background with Hero Arts Unicorn White Pigment Ink for the subtle layered look.
The Simon Says Stamp Wreath of Love was die cut from one of the panels to create a heart-shaped window. A greeting from the Simon Says Stamp Friend Greetings was stamped below the heart opening with black ink as shown.
The second panel was trimmed to 4" x 5 1/4" and a leftover piece of packaging was wrapped around the panel and secured on three sides. Shaker material was added to the flat shaker and then it was secured.
The heart window panel was adhered over the shaker.

The Simon Says Stamp Wreath of Love was die cut three more times from smooth white cardstock and adhered one on top of another in the shaker frame opening and finished with the colored wreath. The chickadee and layered birdie were adhered as shown and the eyes finished with Nuvo Crystal Drops in Ebony.
The hearts were adhered to the card with foam adhesive squares. Gemstones were scattered around the design to finish the card.
