I just LOVE CHRISTMAS!
I even got caught singing a christmas carol in the car while I was sitting at the lights. Well the man in the car next to me didn't know what I was singing but he could see I was enjoying myself. I really enjoy making christmas cards so when I saw this weeks Just Add Ink challenge was Just add Christmas I had to make something. I had a hard time deciding what I wanted to do because there are so many options. Any way I decided to make some shaker cards because they are always fun.
Thanks Kim once again for the loan of your stamp set Watercolor Winter. I had fun designing the poinsettia. In fact I made 7 before I was happy. I used the small petal from the Blossom Petals Builder punch. I then folded them in half and ran them through the crimper at a slight angel.
The little glass micro beads make a wonderful sound when you move the card around.
For shaker card number two I used white embossing to give the image that extra punch.
I have never used my sticky strip with micro beads before. It makes such a pretty effect.
I had a bit of time to play around with some sponging so here is the card I made. I used Baja Breeze for the snow and Pacific point, Not quite navy and Night of Navy for the sky.
I had to share this lovely Christmas card Kim gave me this year.
