Holly Jolly Shaker Card

Here is my post on the "Classy Cards 'n Such" blog today!!

Hello Classy Friends,
Diane here with you today with my latest creative project!
I have been seeing lots of "shaker" cards lately 
and have been wanting to make one for quite sometime!!

When I first saw the Memory Box Have A Jolly Christmas die,
I immediately envisioned a shaker card in my head!!



This card was so "easy" to do....
With the beautiful die cut on  Cryogen White Curious Metallic paper,
glued down with E6000 adhesive spray on my  clear Vellum paper,
I then stitched 3 sides of the vellum on a white cardstock
Using "My Favorite Things Sequins" die, I cut lots of
red and green sequins from Red Metallic  and  Green Metallic
These Shimmer Sheetz make the best sequins,
 and how FUN to make your own sequins!!!

Once I added my sequins, I stitched the last side shut.
mounted my shaker on a piece of  designer paper, added a bow
and my card was complete!!

Here is the card after I gave it a good "shake"!!


I hope you have enjoyed today's project and will try a "Shaker" card yourself!!

Ha! I was just commenting on another blog that shakers seem to be making a comeback. I love your take on the shaker idea. This is especially pretty. Awesome with the stitching and beautiful Christmas die cut. And there's that bow die again. I love that!
