Christmas Shaker Cards – Blue & Silver

Hello, crafty friends! It’s Jenny here taking over the blog today! For today, I would like to share couple of Blue & Silver Christmas shaker cards. I love how these cards turned out and I hope you enjoy them!

Here’s the first card!

To start off, I stamped the Holiday Border Cling stamp on a Bristol Smooth cardstock in Versamark and heat embossed in white. I ink blended Cali Blue Dye, Parisian Blue, and True Navy all over and heat embossed the edges with Silver sparkle embossing powder.  Next, I ink blended with the same inks, stamped and heat embossed the Basic Banner stamp set and the Holiday Add-on Mini stamp set to create the sentiment banner. I die cut it out using the Coordinating Die.

I die cut the center using the Coordinating Die and turned the panel into a shaker frame by adhering clear acetate and double layer of 3M foam tape on the back. I filled the shaker frame with Silver Holographic sequins, Milky Way Couture Mix, Glass Slippers, and Diamond Dust and closed it up with Glossy Fine Silver Adhesive paper. I prepared a A2 white card base by adhering strips of Glossy Fine Silver Adhesive paper on the edges. I adhered the shaker on the card base, added some silver thread and the sentiment banner, and adhered the Silver and Clear Dew Drops to complete the card.

I started off by stamping the Holiday Border Cling Stamp on a Bristol Smooth cardstock in Versamark ink and heat embossed it in white. I again ink blended Cali Blue Dye, Parisian Blue, and True Navy Dye ink and adhered it on a white A2 card base.

Next, I stamped all the layers of the Christmas Tree stamp set and die cut using the Coordinating Die. I double stamped the last layer again with Versamark and heat embossed in silver. I popped it up on the card with foam tape and I also die cut a silver star using the die from the same set and adhered it on the top as the tree topper.

Then, I moved on to the shaker card elements. I adhered the Glossy Fine Silver Adhesive paper on a white smooth cardstock and die cut a frame using largest and 2nd largest die from our Large Double Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered acetate and double layer of 3M foam tape. I placedSilver Holographic sequins, Milky Way Couture Mix, Glass Slippers, and Diamond Dust on the middle of the card and closed it up with the shaker frame. I adhered the Sentiment Banner (created the same way as the 1st card) and the card was complete!
