Spreading Christmas Cheer Shaker Card with Kindred Stamps

Saturday, December 9, 2023

The best way to spread Christmas cheer... is a shaker card! I combined a few different companies on today's card, but the main images and sentiment are from Kindred Stamps. I started with stamping and coloring my images - my narwhal and big elf are from Kindred Stamps and the ice is from Lawn Fawn. I used my Ohuhu Art Markers to color them in and then fussy cut all of the images.

Next I die cut all of my rectangle pieces from my PopsicleSticks die sets. The largest rectangle is out a white and red striped patterned paper and the smallest rectangle out of white cardstock I like to use for ink blending. I also used the scallop die out of sparkly white glitter paper. I trimmed down some acetate to 3x6" so it was ready for making my shaker window.

After die cutting, I stamped my sentiment on the white cardstock and embossed it in gold. Next I added Distress Oxides to my background to create an ocean and sky; of course I added some watercolor splatter and adhered this panel to the stripped background and onto my card base that measures 3.5x6.5" when folded. I sprinkled in my Sparkle Blends (still trying to make my way through them) and closed up my shaker panel with the acetate and scalloped window.

Finally, I adhered my characters to the front of the card as well as a few of the extra snowflake confetti pieces that did not make it inside the shaker from my Sparkle Blends. I think this turned out pretty darn cute and it is my favorite holiday movie! I'll be displaying this on my mantle before deciding if I want to mail it out, hehe.
