Allison Cope is this month's hostess; and she challenged us to create a card that moves in some way! So I chose to make a Shaker card with little snowflakes, German glass glitters, and bright pink sparkly sequins to go along with this sweet vintage Christmas Tree in a Teacup from last year's release by the ever so talented, Marcella!!
My photo had a tiny bit of sunshine on the card which has a bit of glare, but also shows the little filler at the bottom of the Shaker card window...I took a tip from Jennifer McGuire and glued some of the tiny snowflake shaped sequins to the scene so that there are a few sparkles before shaking and it looks so pretty! I rarely make these type of cards, so had to look up several tutorials...they do make for a really special keepsake and I will probably give this one to one of our daughters. The card is 5 1/2 inch squared. The designer paper is one of my very favorite oldies from a Stampin' Up Designer pack with some Bazill background pink. I had so much fun making this card!! Can't wait for this year's Christmas release which actually starts today!!
And here is a little close-up! This scene is so easy to color up with just an assortment of green flicks of copic markers and a few others. Not intimidating at all!
Thanks for dropping in...have a Blessed Day!!
