Happy Christmas Shaker

Hi, Friends.........

Are you loving all the Christmas in July challenges??? I sure am. I love making Christmas cards all year long.......and seeing if I can actually get them mailed in December. That's the *real* challenge!  Ha.

I was inspired to make a shaker card by the MFT 2019 Camp Create Day 3 "Spectacular Shakers" challenge. This set of ornament dies is perfect for this style of card.

Supplies used include:
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Audrey Cutaways die set
Spellbinders - Holiday Tags die set
Happy Christmas stamp I found in a thrift store grab bag
Versafine ink in Crimson Red
Scraps of kraft and solid cardstock from my Christmas stash
Acetate and sequins from my stash

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you are having a wonderful summer!!!

  1. Wow, what a fun card! I have never seen those ornament shaped dies before but that's such a creative way to use them. Not only did you make a shaker card (which always makes me break out in hives) but you even used lines of shiny sequins as hangers. Shakers and sequins always get the best of me so I am completely in awe!

  2. Such a super cool shaker card.
    Your cat meme made me laugh out loud :-D xxxx
