I used the new Bundled Up line from Crate Paper, which was included in the December kit at My Creative Scrapbook. As soon as I saw the theme of this collection, I immediately thought it would lend itself well to a shaker card. I used sequins and tinsel from the kit as snow.
To get started, I used a chipboard frame in the kit. I thought the frame would have just the right depth for the sequins to shake and fall like snow and it did.
To the front of the frame, I attached a piece of transparency. Vellum would work well too. I just stitched the transparency on. It is quite fast and easy to run chipboard through a sewing machine and I didn't have to worry about adhesive showing through.
After stitching the transparency on, I cut a piece of patterned paper the same size as the frame and embellished both pieces with chipboard.
Here's a final look:
A fun and festive card! I'll be back tomorrow with a project for Fancy Pants Designs.
