Holiday Card Series 2016 – Day 9

Hello, all! Today marks Day 9 of the Holiday Card Series 2016, and I have a simple shaker card for you all.

The card started with the striped background. I wanted to create a sort of ombré effect with the stamping.

I used three green inks from Simon Says Stamp for the striped background: Green Apple, Fern, and Midnight Green (I’ve linked Lawn Fawn’s Noble Fir ink below since Simon doesn’t sell Midnight Green anymore). By using the MISTI, I was able to stamp the Diagonal Stripe background stamp multiple times and but up the colors.

Then I diecut a circle window for the shaker area using the Stitched Circle dies from Simon. I stamped a greeting from the Happy Christmas stamp set in VersaMark ink on heat resistant acetate and added white embossing powder from Hero Arts. I adhered the acetate to over the die cut circle window, and then used two layers of foam tape to create the barrier for the shaker bits.

I added red beads, red confetti sequins, and red regular cupped sequins and then sealed up the shaker area with Schoolhouse Red cardstock. I love the pop of red you can glimpse when you look at the side of the card. :)

I hope you all enjoy today’s card! I’ll be back very soon with Day 10.
