Christmas Tree Shaker Card with Pretty Pink Posh

Sunday, October 29, 2023

I love how easy shaker cards can be with the new Pretty Pink Posh Tree Cover Plate Die and we’re going to make one together today. I am starting with some watercolor cardstock and adding different Distress products to create my own colorful paper. Using Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide, I ink squished the color on my glass mat and added water. I dabbed my paper into the ink and used my heat gun to dry the paper in between layers.

Once I was happy with the lighter green, I also added some Lucky Clover Distress Oxide. The green was looking so pretty, but I wanted to tie in some pink to match the Christmas Tree Mix, so I sprayed on some Distress Mica Spray in Sugary Gumdrop. Once the watercolor cardstock is dry, I used the Tree Cover Plate Die to cut out my panel for the front of my shaker.

You can watch the video below to see each step of the shaker assembly, but I layered the Tree Cover Plate with acetate, foam adhesive and a white and gray speckled background paper. This panel will be attached to an A2 card base. For my sentiment on the card, I am mixing dies and stamps - I used the Merry Script to die cut out of a dark and light pink cardstock and glued them together to create a drop shadow look. I also stamped a sentiment from the Sentiment Strips: Christmas Stamp Set in green on die cuts from the Sentiment Strips Dies. I layered the stamped sentiment on white with yellow and pink cardstock.

Since my card already has plenty of dimension being a shaker card, I adhered my die cut and stamped sentiments to the card with liquid adhesive. I hope you like this interactive Christmas card inspired by the colors of the Christmas Tree Mix and that you have lots of fun making cute christmas cards with this latest release!
