Valentine Shaker Card

Hello Bloggers,

This year's Valentine cards. Guess which one I made? :)
The other two are created by my daughter. She is obviously going through her fascinated with punches artistic age :)

There is still the major card hiding on the right, of course. For later :)

Anyway, the card that I am entering into the challenges is this one:
The shaker is created by die-cutting two paper hearts, two red foam hearts and one acetate heart. I had to use strong red sticky tape to put the construction together. All the wet glue attempts failed dramatically, which was quite... educational . :)

I did not want to glue the buttons to the acetate because it would have messed up the looks on the back side, so the most natural solution was just to punch holes and tie the buttons to the acetate with some twine. That's how the back side of the acetate looks.
As you can see, the white background is embossed.
It is actually a three-layer card. There is another plain white layer under the embossed sheet for writing.
