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)
- 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!
