Merry Mistletoe Shaker Card

Hi Stampers! Hope you're staying dry and cool today. It's very swampy here in Central Ohio! Good thing it's always Sunny and the perfect temperature here in the Studio :)

Today, I promised you a little bit of Christmas in July AND another Shaker Card and that's just what I have! This is another one of my most recent swap cards. Sorry for the glare, but that's what happens when you cover something in cellophane and then try to take a picture of it, LOL!

Things to note:

  • For this one, the shaker cover is made with one of Stampin' Up!'s clear envelopes. It was super easy. the mat is cut to be 3-1/4 x 4-3/8" and then slid sideways into the envelope. Then the flap side was cut short and glued down once the sequins were inside.
  • The sequins (Metallics) see below, are not what I would typically use for Christmas Cards, but they look gorgeous in this card. I really love the pink-ish iridescent ones, they're great for beach-y cards too!
  • I added a little bit of embossing with the Holly embossing folder. I like to cut a front piece, in the same color as the card base, (4 x 5-1/2") and emboss that. I, personally, don't like to see the embossing on the inside of my cards. I think they look very finished this way. 

Here's your supply list. Don't forget to use Hostess Code 4JVV7PWW to receive goodies when your online order is $30 or more and make sure to put in your email address if your order is $50 or more so that you get one of those fabulous $5 coupons from Stampin' Up!
