Santa Sprinkles Shaker Card

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I used a paper from Lisa Horton's Christmas Wishes Paper Pad. I matted onto Rich Red Card and then onto Milk Card.

I dusted a piece of Heat Emboss Acetate with an Anti-Static Pad and stamped the Woodware Santa Sprinkles Tag using Fired Brick Distress Oxide. I added CS Matt Clear Embossing Powder and heat set. I cut it out using die #5 from Sue Wilson's Holly Lattice Frame Die Set. I cut a pice of Milk Card using the same die. I added a very fine line of 3mm Foam Tape around the edges of my stamped image on the back of my Acetate, making sure there were no gaps in the foam tape. I added some CS Golden Stars and CS Iced Crystals and added the Milk die cut to seal them in. I cut die #4 from Sue's Holly Lattice Frame with die #4 from Sue's Noelle Frame out of Rich Red Card and glued it to the front of my shaker tag,

I stamped the sentiment from the Woodware Little Festive Branch Stamp Set onto Milk Card using Fired Brick Oxide and embossed with CS Matt Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Sue's Stitched Flags and cut a mat out of Rich Red Card using the next sized die in the set. I shaped it and popped it onto my card with a couple of Foam Pads in the centre to keep the shape. I cut the single poinsettia from Sue's Poinsettia Flourish & Corner Die Set out of Rich Red and added some dots of Sakura Clear Star Pen.

I cut the corner Sue's Poinsettia Flourish & Corner Die Set out of Rich Red and added some dots of Sakura Clear Star Pen.

Thanks for stopping by.
