I've been building my stack of Christmas cards. Even though Newton's Nook already had their holiday release, I'm using their November release for some of my holiday cards. This month might be my favorite release yet! You can check out the full release on their blog.
I'm fickle with my cards. I couldn't decide which images to use, so I made two shaker cards. Here's the first one:
I used the super cute penguin in the Snow Day set for this shaker card and colored him with Copics. I added a few of the snowflakes and a sentiment from the set, too.
Here's a close-up where you can see the penguin, sequins, and glitter inside the shaker.
Okay, truth be told, I kind of messed up on this shaker. I used craft foam to create my ring between the stamped panel and the acetate. Unfortunately, the foam wasn't quite thick enough for some of the sequins. Doh! I must have tapped this card 50 times trying to get some of the larger sequins to drop to the bottom of the card. Lesson learned--check the thickness first!!
I used a second image from the set for a second shaker card:
Yeah, acetate is hard to photograph. For this card, I used the bear snowman--he's so cute! I used the same snowflakes and sentiment from the Snow Day set.
Here's a close-up:
