Simon Says Stamp DieCember™ Blog Hop with Giveaway

Hi!
Welcome to my stop on the Simon Says Stamp DieCemberBlog Hop.
If you have arrived from Laura Bassen's incredible blog, then welcome. (Oh, how I love that Laura…). If not, then head to Simon's blog to start the hop at the beginning.
To celebrate DieCemberSimon Says Stamp have released 15 awesome new dies, available separately, or as a "Kit and Kaboodle" bundle.
For my card today, I have a(nother) shaker card. Yes, I am addicted. :)
This card features the new Sweetheart Tag die, patterned paper from Amy Tangerine's Stitched pad and a sentiment from Simon's Perfect Love set. As a few people have expressed interest in knowing how to make this type of card, I have included some instructions below beneath all the other information. I hope they make sense. :)
Mr and Mrs by Lucy Abrams
