Movement Christmas Cards

CreateFA15HopWelcome

Yep…it’s time for our second Christmas theme for the Create with Connie and Mary Design Team Saturday Blog Hop.  This week it is movement cards and I decided to go with a shaker card.  This was one I did as a make and take with my stamping group and really loved the way it turned out!

Here’s the details…

  • Pool Party – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Sweet Sugarplum – 3 3/4 x 5, add to card front
  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 4 3/4, stamp greeting using Sweet Sugarplum and swirl using Pool Party, cut out open star
  • Window Sheet – 3 3/8 x 4, add to BACK of the panel, tap with embossing buddy, add foam strips around the star to create pocket for the sequins, tap embossing buddy around the exposed stick part are the inside side of the foam strip to help sequins to not stick, add sequins, remove back from the foam strips
  • Whisper White – 3 3/8 x 4 5/8, add to back of shaker card then add shaker panel to card front
  • Add some sequins to the card front to finish off

Don’t you just LOVE shaker cards…and so easy to make!
