Christmas Cards Now and Later
Do you make Christmas cards all year long? I do! For me, it’s too stressful to try to make all my cards during the busy holiday season. So I make about 10 every month. This way I get to use the products I already have. Then when the new Stampin’ Up! annual and holiday catalogs arrive in summer, I also can create some cards with new products!
Shake and Make Snowflake Wishes Easily
Making shaker cards is easy with a few essential supplies. Of course, you’ll need a punch or die for the shaker shape. You’ll also need cardstock, a snowflake greeting set such as Snowflake WIshes, foam adhesive strips, and a window sheet to make the basic shaker card. In addition – some ribbon, embellishments, an embossing folder, and the So Many Snowflake Dies will enhance your creation!
Begin by cutting a card base (Balmy Blue shown), 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, score at 4-1/4″ and fold.
Next cut a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of contrasting cardstock (Pacific Point shown) for the shaker layer. Use a punch or die (2-1/4″ circle punch shown) to cut out a circle. If desired, emboss this piece with an embossing folder (Wintry Snow shown).
Assembling the Shaker
To create the shaker, adhere a piece of window sheet, slightly larger than your punched circle on the back side of the 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer. Tear and Tape adhesive is a good option for attaching the window sheet.
Then add foam adhesive strips over the window sheet, following the shape of your shaker opening. Place sequins over the window sheet, within the area outlined by the foam adhesive strips.
Now cut a piece of snowflake paper 3-3/4″ x 5″ (Snowflake Splendor DSP shown), or create your own snowflake paper with the Snowflake Wishes stamps.
Next, remove the lining from the adhesive strips and lay the snowflake paper, desired pattern side down, and center over the shaker layer.
Finally, attach the shaker assembly to the card base.
Embellishing and Finishing the Snowflake Wishes Card
There are many ways to complete the shaker Snowflake Wishes card. First, consider tying a ribbon (1/4″ White Cotton shown) around the left side of the card. Secondly, use adhesive backed snowflakes or glittery enamel dots for accents. And finally, die cut a large snowflake with the So Many Snowflakes Dies from white glimmer paper to highlight the bottom of your shaker opening with glittery snowy sparkle!
