Greetings! I’ve got a Christmas shaker card to share with you today that’s rather non-traditional. It’s got snowmen….but they’re acting rather unusually. Take a look.
These two are having quite a good time under the sun, aren’t they? They must have some Elsa magic…
I created this little scene on Neenah Desert Storm cardstock, because I was really in the mood to do a little coloring with pencils. And I love how colored pencils look on Kraft cardstock. The snowmen are from Mama Elephant’s Little Snowman Agenda stamp set. The palm trees and sentiment are from a Simon Says Stamp set called Warm Christmas Wishes. I lengthened the grass line that’s under the palm trees to make the little scene more uniform. Then I colored the whole scene with my Tombow Recycled Pencils.
I partially die cut a circle (from Elizabeth Craft Designs) to represent the sun. To complete the shaker window, I cut around the tree using an X-Acto Knife. My sun was completed with the Citrine Sparkle Blend which is full of happy yellow sequins, gems, confetti, and shards, and then I backed it with a piece of Kraft cardstock with yellow polka dots from Doodlebug. I mounted my shaker panel on to a white card base, but I realized I wanted to add a touch of blue to it, so I carefully inked the edges with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.
I love the pretty shades of yellow in the Citrine Sparkle Blend. I think it’s perfect for a sun. I also like this sunny take on a Christmas card. There are so many little snowmen in the “Agenda” stamp set, that I can think of a whole bunch of other cards for them with various scenes. A set of cards like that would make a fun gift!
