Hi peeps! Vera here. Usually Thanksgiving morning is not too hectic in our household, so I’ll most likely be spending it crafting. For me, Thanksgiving kind of mark the day that I better get my Christmas card making in high gear. With that in mind (since I am behind), today I make a fun shaker Christmas card using the fabulous Wonderland Print sets to get my pile going.
Seriously, if you’re doing a one layer card for mass production, this is the set. You can literally complete a bunch of card with this set in just an hour. However for today’s post I want to make shaker card since I haven’t done one for a while.
I started by stamping the poinsettia frame using Hollywood Star, Soft Garden and Bright Fern. Then I die cut it using the matching Wonderland Print dies. Before I adhere the acetate, I lightly marked the opening area with pencil on a piece of white cardstock.
Trim the white cardstock slightly smaller than the frame and adhere it to the card base. Next, stamp the flamingo from Darling Flamingos set & die cut it. Since this set is not really for Christmas, I decided to free hand draw the Santa’s hat, color it with Copic, trim it and add it to the flamingo. Before adhering it to the panel, I kind of estimate where it’s going to go to make sure there’s enough space for the sentiment. To be safe, I stamped the sentiment (from Coming Up Poinsettias set) & then adhere the flamingo.
Add a piece of acetate to the back of the frame and then add foam tape all around. Carefully sprinkle the gorgeous Frosted Spearmint Couture Mix to the center of the card and then laid the frame on top of it and that’s it!
I think opening a shaker card gives you an extra delight, don’t you think? Well peeps, you probably have tons of activity going on for today, so that’s all from me today. Hope you like it and on behalf of The Ton, we wish you all a very happy Thanksgiving. May you have a lovely time with your loved ones. Cheerssss….
