MFT Space Explorer Valentine’s Day Shaker Card

I LOVE MFT’s Birdie Brown Collection of stamps and I’m slowly collecting them. I was looking at the sentiment’s in this stamp set and I had to make a Valentine’s Day card with the sentiment, “There’s No One On The Planet I Love More Than You” from the Space Explorer stamp set.


I stamped and fussy cut the images from the stamp set with MFT Black Licorice Hybrid Ink. I used the following Copic Markers.
Astronaut: E33, E31, E95, YR00, B97, B95, B93, Y06, R37, C5, C3, C2, C1, C0, 0
Moon: T7, T5, T3, T1, C1
Saturn: Y08, Y06, Y02, YR16, Y38
Venus: R37, R35, R32, R59, R56, RV34

I die cut a border from Mama Elephant’s Kingdom Trio Die Set and ink blended it with Distress Oxide Walnut Stain Ink. I also took the ground stamps from Mama Elephant’s Space Bears Stamp Set and added some interest to the border by stamping them with the same Walnut Stain ink. I heat embossed the above sentiment with WOW Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder

I created a stitched frame using Mama Elephant’s Basic and Peek A Frame Die Sets.

I created my background by ink blending Distress Ink Twisted Citron, Carved Pumpkin, Wilted Violet, Mermaid Lagoon, Chipped Sapphire, and Black Soot. I sprayed the panel with water, white craft paint, and then sprayed it with Perfect Pearls.

I assembled my shaker card and used a sheet of acetate and a double layer of 3M foam tape to contain the shaker components.

That finishes up by card. This card was entered into Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge and
Wednesday Challenge.

Thanks for stopping by!!
