Christmas Tree Shaker Card


Hi there!  I know they say Turkey before Christmas Tree, but I just couldn’t resist using this super cute Kat Scrappiness Stitched & Layered Christmas Tree Die.

I started with a white A2 card base and an additional A2 size white piece of cardstock.  I die cut the Christmas Tree Die out of the extra piece of white cardstock, keeping the pieces that were cut out.  Working with the cut out pieces, I inked them up using Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Mowed Lawn on the edges and Twisted Citron on the rest.

I then fit the inked pieces onto the card base using the piece which has the cutouts.  Remove the cutout tree and glue the inked tree pieces down.

With the same two Tim Holtz Distress inks, distress the edges of the cut out tree piece.  Add a piece of acetate to the back of the cutout to cover the tree and glue in place using your favorite glue.  Add some Kat Scrappiness Peppermint Twists Sequins over the tree.  Add foam tape over the cover piece, and place on top to make the shaker.

To finish the card off, I then took stamp from my stash and stamped and colored several images using Zig Clean Brush markers.

I hope you have enjoyed my post today and I will see you next time! ~ DT Carly
