Christmas shaker card | Guest designing for Heffy Doodle

by Alex

Christmas is about loving and sharing!

I’m so excited to be guest designing for Heffy Doodle today! Christmas is coming!

This is the second card I made using Elfish Antics stamp set. For the second card I decided to make a shaker. I love the extra touch of an interactive card!

To start off my card I die cut all images using scissors and colored them in with the Copic markers.

I made some ink blending on a piece of cardstock with Distress inks: I used Spun sugar and Squeezed lemonade. I wanted to create a cozy Christmas scene. So I decided to draw a fireplace using my markers. Then I stamped the Christmas tree by MFT and colored in the image with markers as well. Next I die cut two frames and a rectangle from this cardstock using the Averey Elle Double Pierced Rectangles dies. My idea was to make “a volume” inside of the shaker window.

And the second step was the making of the scene.  At first I glued the rectangle to the centre of the card base and then I adhered the first frame using foam tape. And the second frame I attached to the acetate piece to make a window shaker. Once all the images were ready I adhered them to the card base using foam tape and glue as well. Then I added sentiments and made accents for some images using “Wink of stella” pen.


To finish off the card I applied foam tape to the back of the second frame and filled the shaker with sequins and confetti, removed the backing paper and adhered the shaker window to the base scene to complete the design.Some images and sequins I attached to the front of the shaker window.

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
