Nichol, I've watched you make a LOT of shaker cards and these are possibly the cutest you've ever made. Absolutely darling cards! I LOVE the way you made the two-tone hearts background and the textured birch trees. This is a fabulous tutorial! Thank you!

Aimee LaCroix-Slocum

LOVE this card!! One of the best shaker cards I have seen in awhile. The scene in the background is so sweet and the sentiments are perfect. Thank you for the inspiration!

Such a lovely scene with beautiful color shades!

These are beautiful cards Nichol, I love the critters. I realised that I have the tree die in my stash so I could do a similar shaker card but with a different critter as I do not own any deer stamps or dies. But I do love my critters so I could have panda bears, dogs, cats, rabbits etc. etc. LOL

I will attempt a shaker card again as I have a few birthdays coming up and I always think that even an adult loves a shaker (but I haven't in the past liked making them).

Going to have another go! Thanks Nichol for giving me the inspiration to do this.

Darling shaker cards, love the little deer and the scene you created. Thanks for the video showing the construction of your card.


Nichol, what a gorgeous cards, beautiful colours and I never would thought of using my deer dies for a Valentine card. Thanks for this great idea and the video tutorial.


So so pretty

Nichol, this particular Nichol specialty scene is just adorable +++. What more can I say. It just makes my day to come into my computer and find your adorable creations. Starts my computer work with a BIG smile. Thanks for sharing your love of what you do!


What are some basic die cutters that you would recommend for someone who is starting out with cardmaking?

Oh my goodness Nichol, these are both just darling. Beautifully done.

Absolutely ADORABLE Nichol! Love the birch trees done with the embossing paste! It's always so fun when we actually have the supplies you use because watching your video makes me want to do it RIGHT NOW! Too bad I don't have that little deer though because he/she is so cute! Love this card! You did a fantastic job with it! Love your videos!!!
