Mitten Shaker Card
There's nothing more fun than making a shaker card and today I have two to share with you. I have to confess that I've never made a shaker card before and have no idea why it has taken me so long to do so. These are FUN!
~ The Cutting Cafe ~
I used the Christmas Shape Shaker Cards cutting file and in no time I created the Mitten and Snowglobe Shaker Cards for two special peeps on my holiday card list. There are 8 assorted Christmas shape cutting files offered in this one file. :) That's right, 8!!!
Snowglobe Shaker Card
Sequins were added to both of my shaker cards and for this one I decided to stamp the background and create a magical scene. To me, there's nothing more magical than seeing Santa and his reindeer flying high in the sky on Christmas Eve. ;)
I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut these files but if you do not own an electronic cutting machine, that's ok. Regina always offers a PDF file which you can print and cut yourself.
You will need foam tape and acetate to create these and the rest is up to your imagination. I hope you have fun playing with shaker cards.
Before I go, I have one more card to share today that is not related to our DT post. I was going through my folder and happened upon the House Shaped Card and Envelope Template and thought how cute it would be to send this as a Christmas card. The peppermint dp and Crystal Stickles add some holiday flair and I stamped a "From Our House to Yours" sentiment on the inside. I love the idea of using something in a different way!
Regina offers inserts for the windows which I didn't use because I couldn't find them on my messy desk so I drew curtains with a marker and colored my windows with Copic markers.
