Have yourself a merry little Christmas.

Hi everyone! Happy Hump Day – hope you’re having a great week! I’ve popped in today with a fun card I created for Gecko Galz Blog. I love shaker cards and it’s been a while since I created one, so I thought this was the perfect time. This was the last Christmas card I made for this year’s stash. I used paper from the Miss Muffet Paper Pack and an image from the adorable Winter Blessings Collage Sheet. OMG, I had a hard time picking just one image, lol!


I created a frame from silver glitter cardstock using two rectangle dies. I adhered yellow foil Washi Paper to white cardstock and cut a layering panel as well as a stitched star die cut. I layered the Curly Locks paper from the Miss Muffet Paper Pack onto the yellow foil panel. I created a banner and heat embossed the sentiment on the right side of it. Using my fuse tool, I created a shaker pouch and inserted glitter, sequins, seed beads and a tiny bit of baby powder (to help with static cling), and sealed it shut. I sandwiched the shaker pouch between the frame and the image, and adhered it to the card base over the left side of the banner.


I embellished the inside panel with a leftover strip of the paper and foil used on the front, stamped a sentiment and layered the panel on yellow cardstock.


One more look… really loving how this turned out! Such a sweet card!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
