Good afternoon! It’s an Anything Goes week at Christmas Card Challenges and I’m excited to share my shaker card with you today! I recently picked up a few sets from Ellen Hutson and I love this Christmas Scribbles set!
I’ve been playing with my distress inks a lot recently so I started by watercoloring a background panel for my shaker with salty ocean, chipped sapphire, and tumbled glass distress ink. After it dried I stamped the snowflakes from Christmas Scribbles with versamark and heat-embossed them with white embossing powder. I stamped the tree onto white cardstock with copic-friendly ink and then colored it with copics. I used my ScanNCut to cut out the tree. To assemble my card I die-cut a stitched rectangle frame and adhered a piece of acetate to the back of the frame. Then I added a double layer of foam mounting tape around the back of the frame and added my sequins, beads, and microbeads. I really wanted a busy shaker so I packed it with sparkly goodness! 😉 I adhered my watercolor panel to the shaker to seal everything in. Next I tore some scrap watercolor paper to create a textured snowy landscape. I inked the edges with versamark and then added some sparkly embossing powder to the edge. Next I stamped the sentiment and heat-embossed it with silver embossing powder. I layered the snowy hills over the shaker and finished it by adding my Christmas tree!
For some reason the feel of the stamp set really makes me think of Charlie Brown (though this Christmas tree is much nicer than his!) 😉 I really love the whimsical, artsy look of this card!
And now it’s your turn to get crafty! We provide an inspiration palette or photo each week but really, the only rule is that you create a holiday card! For even more inspiration, check out what the rest of the Christmas Card Challenges design team has created!
