Today's Color Challenge is perfect for a Christmas card! I guess my red is closest to real red & I only used a little black on this...for Santa's boots & belt.
I really love shaker cards & since I bought a fuse tool, it's now a whole lot easier to do. The shaker on this was made using a cellophane pouch I made out of a little envelope that embellishments come in. There's not a lot of depth or bulk to it so it's definitely mailable.
After die cutting the white top panel, I positioned the largest Double Stitched Star die at an angle toward the top. The largest Sparkling Star die was used to cut the red frame behind it & I used the smallest star dies to die cut all the sparkly stars I put inside the shaker. After sealing it, I attached it behind the star opening & added a thin foam sheet under it give it a bit of room. I added a green paper star behind it before I attached it all to the striped paper. Santa was colored w/ Copics & fussy cut. The greeting was stamped on another star & the glittery presents added beside Santa.
Thanks so much for looking! Closeups & the inside are on my blog: The Write Stuff
