Shake, Shake, Shake

Hi everyone, Sue here with a quick and simple shaker card that can be easily mass produced for the holidays.

Sue McRae Shaker Card Front

I wanted the Crafty Tree Background to be my shaker image and die cut that first on my panel. I decided the tree needed a trunk so I used a square die to add one to the tree.

To make the front a little more festive I die cut a bunch of snowflakes from the Christmas Baubles die and adhered them randomly across the front.

I wanted a little bit of interest to the back of the window so I used the Memory Box Wave Stencil and sponged on ink in a similar shade to the card stock.  I wasn't worried about the edges being neat as only the center portion would be visible through the window.

For the fun shaker element I knew I was going to use sequins and glass glitter but I also wanted to use the Cookie Cutter Tree die and all the little shapes that come out of it when die cut.

Sue McRae Confetti Pieces

I ran the Cookie Cutter Tree through my die cut machine a couple of times with red and silver paper and ended up with a lot of little bits (stars, bells, ornaments, leaves) to use on future projects as well as the die cut trees.  No wasted paper with this die.
