Day 4: Shaker card

I hope you're enjoying my 12 Days of Christmas Cards blog series so far. I always like making Christmas cards, and it's been fun deciding which design(s) to post each day. For today's installment, the fourth in the series, I'm going to share a festive shaker card.

Supplies (all Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Ornamental Season (Unity Stamp Company)
Paper: Whisper White, Soft Sky card stock; white mini oval shaker overlay (The Paper Cut)
Ink: Basic Gray, Smoky Slate, Lost Lagoon, Soft Sky, Pear Pizzazz; light gray alcohol marker (Copic C1)
Accessories: Oval shaker card pouch (Impression Obsession), Holiday Frame embossing folder, All Is Calm washi tape, 1/8" silver ribbon, silver glass glitter, Dimensionals, Glue Dots

This card is really pretty in person, and I don't think the photo does it justice. The lighting wasn't quite right, so the soft color pallet looks a little dull.

At any rate, this was a straightforward card to make. I stamped and colored the image then adhered the shaker pouch with glitter over the image. I debated how to decorate the white overlay when I remembered I have the Holiday Frame embossing folder. It was the perfect frame for the shaker, and I like how the embossing picks up the swirls in the stamped image. I used silver washi tape to make a border along the top and bottom of the overlay, added a silver bow and adhered the overlay to the card base with Dimensionals.
