Pocket Shaker Holiday Card

Hello everyone! Hope your week is off to a great start! It’s TaeEun here today with a pocket shaker holiday card! I used one of the four A2 images from the Jolly Season Large Stencils for the background of my pocket shaker card.

A pocket shaker card is easier to make than a usual shaker card, as you don’t need to make a window nor the wall for the shaker elements.

To start I stenciled the part of the Jolly Season Large Stencils that I wanted. You could stencil a whole letter sized panel to get four images using the large stencil set or you could choose one image for an A2 sized panel like I did for this card!

To stencil the image with a festive all-over pattern I used Coralline hybrid ink, Cherry, Lipstick Red, Bright Emerald and Hot Tourmaline. When I stenciled the dark green area of the greenery I covered the other part of the stencil #3, which I stenciled in Cherry.

I cut a clear sheet slightly larger than A2 size and folded the excessive edges to attach the folded edge on the back of the stenciled panel. 

First I attached three sides of the panel with the clear sheet to make a pocket and poured the shaker elements into the opening. As the shaker elements I used the Smoked Emerald Sparkling Clear sequins, Cosmic Mauve Couture Mix and some red and silver star confetti. Lastly I closed the opening of the pocket.

The sentiment is from the Bold Fill In Holiday set. I stamped “SENDING” in Lipstick red and filled the blank space with the “CHRISTMAS CHEER” by heat embossing it in silver. I then cut the sentiment using the coordinating die and added it to the card slightly tilted using foam tape.                  

This is the last post from me in this year! I’m so grateful for your love and support throughout the year! 

Wishing you all a happy holiday season and a new year filled with love and happiness!

Sending you crafty hugs,


Jolly Season Large Stencils

Hello and Happy Friday everyone!!! It’s TaeEun here today with a set of holiday cards which I made using the new Jolly Season Large Stencils from our Fall / Holiday Release. Have you checked out the new Release with lots of new layering stencils and stamps? There are two 9”x 12” holiday themed stencil sets. Each of them includes four A2 sized images. 

For today’s post I pulled out the Jolly Season Large Stencils. I love the cheerful and cute design of them with stars, ornaments, gift boxes, garlands and greenery. 

I turned all four stenciled panels into holiday cards. I already shared one of them on my blog for the Fall / Holiday Release day. Today I’ll show you the rest of the quartet.

I stenciled the four piece stencil set in BubblegumCali Blue, Iris BloomsHot Tourmaline and Basil Mojito on a letter sized white cardstock. After the stenciling was done I cut the panel into four A2 sized pieces.

For the first card I used the border image with small ornaments, garlands, stars and some greenery. I cut the panel using the coordinating die and foam mounted the die cut piece on a pink cardbase – the coordinating die cuts the panel into one large piece and a single star.

To make the foiled sentiment I first die cut a white cardstock piece using the Ho Ho Ho coordinating die and stenciled Ho Ho Ho on it using the Foil transfer gel. I made two pieces as I made one more card with that sentiment. I let the panel dry for a day and foiled it in pink using a laminator. The other one for the card below was foiled in silver.

I added the sentiment to the card with two layers of foam tape and scattered a few Soft Pink Gems on the card to finish off. 

The stenciled panel with two large ornaments and some greenery on the border was also die cut using the coordinating die.  For this panel I chose a teal cardbase. Before I foam mounted the die cut piece, I splattered white ink on the cardbase for a snowy look. Here I used the silver foiled Ho Ho Ho sentiment and the Dark Teal Gems. 

For the next card I used the overall patterned panel. This panel has also a coordinating die. But for my card I didn’t use it. Instead I cut a frame using the Double Pierced Ornate Nested die set from the panel and raised the frame with foam tape. 

The sentiment for this card is from the Bold Fill In Holiday set. I stamped the “SENDING” in Violet Fringe and silver heat embossed the thin sentiment to fill in. 

The sentiment was die cut using the coordinating die and added to the card with dimension. To embellish this card I used the White Gems. 

The white and dark teal gems will be released later! I couldn’t resist to use them for my cards as they fit perfectly 🙂 .

As I mentioned above, you can find all the details about the fourth card with Ribbons Merry sentiment on my blog

That’s it from me for today. Using the large stencil sets you get four different A2 panels with one working process ! Of course you can use only one part of the stencils if you want to have a specific image. It’s up to you!

Thank you so much for stopping by ! Hope you enjoyed looking my cards!

Have a crafty weekend!
