I decided to use some of the wonderful foam squares and sheets from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L to make a shaker card. Also, as I mentioned earlier, I really love the foiling kit, so I wanted to think of a fun way to use that. I decided to break out the Christmas Bright Stamp and Die Set, though for this card, I only used some of the dies.
I die cut the "merry" with the foam sheet that comes in the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit and then lightly pressed the red foil into the die cut. I made sure to not get the edges. After that, I used the green foil to get all of the areas that I "missed" with the red. I love the effect of the 2 colors on the word. For the "Christmas" die cut, I used Neenah Desert Storm cardstock, and used a brown Pitt Pencil from Faber Castell to add some shadows.
For my shaker window, I used the small oval in the Christmas bright set and cut it out of Graphic 45 cardstock. My card base is brown, and with such a large window, I didn't want it to be plain, so I used my favorite stencil, which is the Houndstooth, along with Champagne Delicata ink. In my shaker, I used a mix of sequins from Doodles Paper Playground and The Ink Road. To give the shaker dimension, I used some foam squares and cut up portions of foam sheets from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.
I love the shine and interactive quality of this card. It's just so much fun to shake! As I mentioned earlier,
