Hello Christmas
by Michele K. Henderson

Hello Christmas! Ho Ho Ho! Everybody's waiting for the man with the bag, so I just had to add him to this fun holiday shaker card! Isn't it jolly?

This holly jolly shaker was so much fun to make! I started out by cutting out the Holly Frame and Stencil in holiday green, and the Whittle Santa Face in red, white, and beige.

I traced and cut the background paper from this beautiful new cardstock from Memory Box, which features these tiny little holly and berry images! Adorable!

I lined up the shaker circle and used the Double Stitch Circle Frames to create the shaker card opening on my holly and berry background panel.

New this year from Memory Box are super sticky and wide washi tapes! I taped the snowflake washi over a piece of light grey cardstock, then cut a square to fit behind my shaker window.

Then I loaded up my shaker with a sparkly holiday sequin mix, using snowflakes, red, green, blue, and pink sequins. It really looks festive against the light grey and the snowflakes of the washi tape.

I added a little pink blush to Santa's cheeks with a cotton swab and my favorite ink, stacked up three mustaches, and topped off Santa's hat with a tiny white pom pon. Ho Ho Ho!

Adhere Santa to the front of your acetate window, add the Hello Outline and a few sequins and you are ready to say Hello Christmas!

Thanks so much for joining us today!

Hi Michele, This is a lovely 'shaker' card and the holly frame is one of my favourites, and the Whittle Santa face makes it so special.
