Merry Christmas

It had to happen sooner or later. Can't put off the Christmas cards any longer or I won't have any. Can it really be less than 10 weeks away?

I made a shaker card for the challenge at Shopping Our Stash, which is 'I Can See Clearly' and to use acetate on our cards, Of course. acetate means shaker to me. I love them. I die cut Neenah CS with SSS Stitched Rectangles and a Lifestyle Crafts Circles die to create a piece that looks like an ornament. After adhering acetate to the opening, I cut a piece of fun foam and adhered to the back over the acetate. 

Next I added some Pretty Pink Posh Classic Christmas sequins along with other sequins from my stash into the open area. The panel was then adhered to a card base and a piece of ribbon from my stash was added as a hanger. The sentiment is from Hero Arts Merry Christmas Meassage stamp set and was stamped with SSS Hot Lips ink.

I am also entering this into Addicted to Stamps Challenge # 166 - Anything Goes.

This card was cased from one that my friend, Rosalie, taught me how to make. I'll be sharing that one soon.  

Have a wonderful rest of the weekend. Enjoy!
