Ho Ho Ho, friends! Uh, ok, I mean hello friends! How come Halloween is tomorrow but I'm already in Merry and Bright spirits? I guess having the loveliest Christmas stamps to play with has something to do with it ;) Waffle Flower Crafts is to blame!
Today I bring you a Christmas shaker card that I'm totally in love with! I used Holiday Labels: Merry stamp set, Flower Circles die set and the Tiny Star die. Patterned paper is Basic Gray, from last year's Christmas collection I think.
I started covering the card front with patterned paper. Second came the shaker ornament. I used the Flower Circles die set to die cut the circle twice from red cardstock and patterned paper, and one more time from acetate.
Then, I stamped and white-heat embossed the circle label from Holiday Labels: Merry on the red cardstock circle , and trimmed the inside half circles to make the windows for the shaker ornament.
Once I adhered the acetate piece behind the stamped circle, I put foam tape all around it and added my confetti of choice: lots of stars cut from the Tiny Star die and white chunky glitter. With all the filling in place, the last step was adhering the patterned paper circle to the back, and I had my shaker ornament ready to go!
Before adhering it, I stitched some baker's twine straight on the card, and when the ornament was in place, I adhered the bow.
As a final touch, I adhered scor tape to the bottom edge of the card, removed the backing and covered it with glitter.
And there you go! Making a shaker card can be a bit time consuming, but the result is so fun and pretty that I think it's completely worth it! Thanks for stopping by!
