How to make a Christmas tree shaker card with heart dies

It can be fun to take basic shapes like a heart and transform it into something like this Christmas tree. The heart dies from Crafter's Companion are mixed-media dies and they cut through cardstock and Fun Foam at the same time which is how you make this shaker card.

First up I die cut the 3 hearts at the same time layering the silver cardstock and Fun Foam.

Then I glued a piece of recycled plastic container between the silver cardstock and Fun Foam. I played around with different sequins and embellishments from Buttons Galore on the top of the card until I liked the look.
I trimmed the black Fun Foam down to about a 1/4 inch.

 I then filled the three upside down hearts that formed the Christmas tree with gold sequin mix and glued the green glitter cardstock together.

Then I glued on the half pearls and buttons to the top layer of the card.

This technique for cutting the cardstock and fun foam makes creating shaker cards so easy!
