It’s only 5 weeks to go until Christmas -so here’s a quick and easy shaker Christmas card to whip up in a flash.

If you haven’t got out the starter blocks yet to make your Christmas cards -then you will love how quickly you can make a bunch of these cards.

DISCLAIMER: I am using some retired Stampin’Up! products for this card – however, you can take the concept and make your own shaker cards.

Shall we get started?

Requirements for your shaker Christmas Card

  • Cardstock of choice ( for this project I used evening evergreen) -cut to 5½” x 8¼” and scored at 4 1/8″
  • Clear envelope -C6 size is best
  • Designer series paper of choice -cut to 5 7/16″ x 4 1/16″ ( I used the retired On the Horizon paper)
  • Sequins ( I used for everything fancy sequins 159187 -blue/green)
  • Ink of choice – I used evening evergreen
  • Christmas sentiment ( I used the retired Heartful Wishes)
  • Glue
  • Tear/tape or Stampin’ Up Seal +
  • Wink of Stella
  • Die cuts of Christmas Trees ( I used the retired Sale-a-Bration Treelot Dies) -optional

How to put together your card

  • Die cut your trees out of scraps of green paper. It’s best if the paper has a variation of colour. This just adds nice dimension to the landscape effect
  • Glue your trees (if using) onto the designer series paper. I needed to use my fine tip glue as the trees were small
  • Stamp your Christmas greeting onto your paper -around mid-way is best so that it can be seen with the sequins lying at the bottom of the paper
  • Take your Wink of Stella and flick dots of “snow” onto the paper
  • Place the designer series paper into the clear C6 envelope
  • Scoop in your sequins at the front of the envelope -around 1-2 scoops
  • Using your bone folder, burnish very strongly around the excess of the envelope.
  • Make sure you take the excess to the back of the envelope
  • Using tear and tape or strong adhesive, glue down all the sides of the clear envelope
  • Now adhere this onto the front of your cardbase

And just like that you’ve created a quick and easy shaker card for Christmas!!

Of course, you just need to use whatever paper you have in your stash -but hopefully you have everything that I used!

Until next time!
