Mad Hatter Valentine Shaker Card for Really Reasonable Ribbon
Hello, Friends! What could be cuter for Valentine’s Day than this Mad Hatter Valentine Shaker Card? It sort of lends a new meaning to the phrase “mad about you,” doesn’t it?
Black Houndstooth Ribbon and Black Baker’s Twine add the perfect balance to this bright, bold color palette. It plays perfectly with the itty bitty playing cards in the shaker element and sort of “grounds” the mix of pastel and primary colors in the card design.
Before you adhere your card front to the card base, why not wrap it with Baker’s Twine? I actually ran the twine through the brad holes in this metal door plate, then adhered the ends behind the card front. This allowed me to cluster my little tea charms at the top as a dangle element. Then I just added a small baker’s twine bow and flower to finish things off.
The Shaker Element
Look at the detail in our Mad Hatter! Isn’t it amazing? This is Printed Beautiful Board from Reneabouquets Shop. (link below) See how the check pattern in his trousers echoes the checked ribbon? It’s always a good design idea to repeat a pattern.
Add Baker’s Twine to the top of the pocket watch shaker, and to the bow cluster to create fulness and texture.
A Peek Inside
The inside of this card is simple, but still playful.
The flap element doubles as a tea caddy.
And the larger pocket holds a little note card and chocolate treat wallet with a Baker’s Twine closure.
As much as I love frilly pink Valentines, I also love the whimsy and playfulness of this Mad About You Shaker Valentine, how about you?
