Christmas Shaker Card | Picket Fence Studios - "Merry Christmas" Word Topper Die

Happy Friday Eve!

I've got more great products to share with you from Picket Fence Studios' July Release including the two dies I used to make this shaker card! This card was super easy to create but could be made even easier by using the full front shaker method! 

I started by ink blending an A2 cardstock panel with my largest "Life Changing Blender Brushes" using "Salty Ocean" & "Chipped Sapphire" Distress Oxide Inks. After I spritzed the panel with shimmer mist, I set it aside to dry in a heavy book! Both the NEW "Santa's Snowy Hills" and "Merry Christmas" Word Topper Dies were used to cut panels from white card stock; the word topper die was lightly blended with the "Salty Ocean" Ink at the bottom.

The blue panel was attached to an A2 card front and the die cuts were glued down on top. Several white die cut frames were glued together and backed with a piece of acetate and a double layer of skinny foam tape strips were added behind the framing.

I glued a handful of snowflakes from the NEW "Icicles" Sequins Mix onto the inky sky (just so they would remain suspended when the card was upright) and then added a scoop of the sequin mix to the middle of the card front. The release paper was removed from the foam tape and the acetate window was pressed onto the card. I absolutely love shakers and these two silhouette dies are perfect for this card style!

Here are the products I used:
