BYSHC Falling for the Holidays ~ Smelling like Christmas

Sadly, it’s the last day of BYSHC Falling for the Holidays Linky Party. I hope everyone had a chance to check out BYSHC Blog for some Christmas inspirations and was able to join us.

For the last day, I decided to save the best for last which is a fun shaker card! I love shaker cards, and I used TWO of our wonderful sponsors to complete it. I started by creating the frame with our NEW sponsor Kat Scrappiness A2 Reverse Scallop Die Frame. I stamped, copic colored, and fussy cut out the mice from Gerda Steiner Designs Smell like Christmas Stamp Set and added some ADORABLE gingerbread embellishment from our lovely sponsor Twiddler’s Nook. She has to cutest embellishments ever so go check her out on Etsy.

To make my shaker card sandwich, I started by gluing a white frame over some acetate and then glued 2 more frames underneath that. Next I added foam tape all around the bottom frame. I flipped the sandwich around so the acetate was on the bottom and foam tape were sticking on top. I went a little overboard with my glitter, but I added that and more gingerbread into my shaker card. For my background, I used patterned paper with a bunch of stamped cookies from the same GSD stamp set and attached it to the foam tape to seal off my card.

Besides Falling for the Holidays Linky Party, we still have our monthly Sketch Challenge going on. I’m also sharing my third card for our monthly Sketch Challenge. Check out the other two on my Instagram, but these cards are super easy to make if you have these patterned paper with rectangular images. Just cut them out and glue them together and voila, you have a card.

I hope you enjoyed all the cards I’ve been sharing this week, and thank you for continuously stopping by. Remember you have until 11:59 PST to link up your card, and GOOD LUCK!
