Shakin' Up Christmas

It's never too early to create Christmas/Holiday cards, but then I could make holiday cards all year round...they are my favorite ones to make!  Kat Scrappiness carries so many fun stamps, dies and shaker elements to use for the holidays that it makes designing cards a snap!

For my card, I first created a 'frame' using one of the new Cross Stitched Nesting Slimline dies and one of the Embossed Edge Nesting dies that I ran through my Big Shot nested together.  I then adhered a new Slimline Acetate Sheet to the back of the frame and lined the frame with double-sided foam tape.  I then placed a few different shaker elements (see thumbnails below) in the opening and placed a piece of pattern paper over it to 'seal in' the shaker elements.  This slimline shaker was then adhered to the card base.

Using the Merry Christmas with Shadow dies, I cut red glitter cardstock for the words and vellum for the 'shadow' and adhered to the front of the card.  The fun and festive Santa gnome is from the Christmas Gnomes stamp set.
