Christmas Time
by Marybeth Lopez


Hello, Marybeth here today. I am sharing a"separated sectional shaker card" with you today . It's s a little more involved than my normal style of card.


I glued three layers of the holly, then cut one more for the top. I have two layers of vellum to hold the sequins in place.


I turned the card over and filled the card with sequins , covered with one layer of  vellum and then added the other layer of vellum before adhering to the red card base ( see below)


The sequins stay put and shake just a bit, no falling to the lower edge this way.

 I used use the Holy Family from Nativity Scene Sidekick and Stencil Frame. ( I just cut it out of the frame) It's layered twice then adhered  to the card.


Hope you like it and understand my photo directions. 

Its still very dry and windy here in Southern California as I write this. Praying for some rain.

Hope you have a good week!





So pretty, Marybeth ... the holly and shaker sequins frame the Holy Family beautifully! Hugs, Anita :)
