'Tis the Season

Saturday, November 18, 2017

I feel like this is the all-Christmas all-the-time channel!  But I just googled it and there's only 37 days until Christmas {gasp} and my cards need to be in the mail well before that so I'm not-so-fast and furiously creating them.

My card today was inspired by the colors at Color Throwdown and the sketch at Fusion.  I had one version of this card nearly complete before I realized that it was total junk and scrapped it to create this one instead.  This one is so much better!



I do love making a shaker card because they are so fun!  Hopefully the recipient will love it too!  In addition to the sequins I layered on some die cut snowflakes - and discovered in the process of making this card that one of my snowflake die sets has gone missing.  Oh no!!!  I'm sure it will turn up mis-filed somewhere....

Thanks for stopping by!

This is so pretty and fun, Jen! I love shaker cards (or any interactive cards for that matter) too!
The shades of blue with silver look so elegant and refreshing. It's a fabulous take on the fusion sketch! Hideko
