Merry Christmas
by Marybeth Lopez


 Hi there ! I hope you are enjoying the Poppystamps Blog Blitz !

As soon as the new dies came back in July I sat down to make this shaker card just for fun , I liked it so much I thought I should use it for the blog blitz!


My top layer is watercolor paper to add a bit of texture. I added a layer of acetate under the second layer of paper, then added glass beads for the shaker.

I cut the word Merry, from the new Merry Frame and the word Christmas, from the new Christmas frame. I love that I now have an easy "Merry Christmas" sentiment to add to any of my Christmas cards. I sure need to get busy , I usually have about half  of my Christmas cards completed  by now.  


 So many new stamps and be beautiful new Holiday dies to choose from this summer. No need to wait till the last minute.

Awesome card, I love shaker cards, I hope they never go out of style!

Gorgeous layering of these dies, I love hillside scenes like this and pretty snow you have inside, neat way to use the sentiment dies too!

Lovely - so fun.

Marybeth,this is just gorgeous! I just LOVE shakers and this is such a pretty winter scene!
Take care!

Stunning - love the layers and of course the shaker - anyone would love a shaker with beads! Whoot Whoot! Beautiful

Love this! So beautiful!

I absolutely love this card!!!! It inspires me!

Very elegant card ! The glass beads are perfect for the snowy look !

Can never get enough shakers! This one is so lovely!

Such a great card!!! I love both of these "hillside" dies!! So pretty!!!

Fabulous new release and wonderful card. Love the white on white and the fun shaker beads.

Well Marybeth we can't all be winners but you are every time with your wonderful inspiration. This is a fabulous shaker card.

Such a peaceful card. Perfect for Christmas. I really like the way you combined the frame dies for this. Thanks for sharing!

Wonderful design! Forgive my ignorance... how do you create the shaker element?

I am a little confused. Did you die cut "merry christmas" and the cut it off the frame?

A gorgeous card, Marybeth! The Open Hillside die is perfect for the snow scene shaker card. Using the beads for the shaker, thank you, they are easy to find. I can't find snowflake sequins small enough for mine, so now I know the beads work beautifully. The Merry Christmas looks fantastic, great use of those frame dies. I am excited that Poppystamps has released the scene dies, this is the style of cards I am planning on making this year. Love the shaker card idea, perfect for this card. Thankyou for all the creative inspiration today, and sharing this amazing card today!
