Heart of Christmas week 2 - Trees For Sale Shaker Card


Hello stampers, I'm back to share week 2 of the Heart of Christmas Blog Hop with you. I know, Christmas already? But just think, if you start making your Christmas cards now you'll be well prepared by the time you need to write your cards.

This week I have used the Trees For Sale stamp set from the July to December Mini Catalogue and the coordinating dies called Tree Lots Dies which are on of the Sale-a-bration rewards currently available for FREE with any $90 purchase.
I used these products to make a shaker card.

I cut the from panel with the three different sizes tree dies. I then stamped the three trees, using the previously cut piece as a guide.
The front of the card was masked with a piece cut from a Basic Borders Dies, a blending Brush and Balmy Blue ink.

I loaded my shaker card with sequins from the Sequins For Everything Pack before assembling the card. I used the large frame from the Fabulous Frames Dies to border my trees. Before attaching this piece to the card from I wound a piece of gold twine around the base of the shaker piece. The card base is Real Red.

It's now time to see what my lovely friend and talented stamper Christine Blain has to share with us. Hop over and check it out, it's amazing!

If you encounter any issues with the links on our hop head to Sharon Davern's blog as she is the wonderful host of our Christmas Blog Hops and will have a complete list of tonight's participants.

Thanks for visiting,
Happy stamping,
