Very Merry Shaker Card, PP224 & MM136


Greetings, Stampers! It's Sunday and time for another challenge from The Paper Players! This week Jaydee has a wonderfully fun Tic-Tac-Toe board for us. I was not planning this when I started my card, but I achieved every square on the board except the star! 


What I did have in mind when I started was a shaker card. I love shaker cards and I have an entire Pinterest board dedicated to them, but only once before have made one of my own. I decided to create one with a snowy little scene using the Holiday Home stamp set. There are so many fun little images in that set.


I'm also playing along with the challenge at Merry Monday, where Nance Leedy happens to be a featured designer.


My Cherry Cobbler panel measures 3 x 3 3/4". I cut a square inside using a Square Framelit, then lined the inside with a window sheet. I cut DSP the same size and created my little scene. I trimmed the square with narrow strips of Dimensionals all around, added some glitter, then put the panels together. Easy! Well, maybe not that easy, LOL! At least not for me! 


Stampin' Up Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Holiday Home, And Many More
Card Stock: Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler
Designer Series Paper: Trim the Tree
Ink Pads: Early Espresso, Garden Green, Versamark
Tools: Heat Tool, Big Shot, Square Framelits
Accessories: Early Espresso Embossing Powder, Glass Glitter, Cotton Thread, Nordic Designer Buttons, Window Sheets

Please join us this week and play along with Jaydee's Tic-Tac-Toe board at The Paper Players!

Inky hugs!
