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.

love the white and blue contrast. very pretty.

I've loved the shaker inspiration over the last two days - so festive!

I love how you used classic blue and white cardstock for a wintry scene and your glass beads add just the right shine and bling for the perfect pairing. Thanks for showing us a different way to use the word die frames as well. Great job!
