Heart shaker card

I've made a heart shaker christmas card with two challenges in mind.
The CASology's cue word this week is Heart and The Addicted to Stamps and More has the Holiday theme at current challenge.
I chose blue shade so that the card can give wintery feel. 
And I used Fuse tool to make the shaker pocket.

I started out by cutting the card base with a heart window with my Cricut.  I also cut a frame in shape of a heart from a watercolor paper which I colored in light blue. I then cut a small heart as a template for the shaker pocket.
The card base was stamped with chevron background stamp from Heidi Swapp and heat embossed using Diamond Sparkle EP.

For the pocket I used a page protector. The pocket was filled with some sequins and glitters in blue and teal. I stitched through the heart with blue thread by hand and thereaded some blue beads. 
The shaker pocket was mounted between the window and the frame only top and bottom. 

I wanted the sentiment to peek through the window. So I stamped it inside of the card.
The sentiment from Stampendous was stamped in purple and then once again in blue but only some part of it (YAY to Misti tool:)).


Thank you for stopping by! 
Happy crafting!
