Twelve Days of Christmas: Day Eight, Christmas Tree Shaker

Cards, Holiday Card

Welcome back to my Twelve days of Christmas feature. Thanks so much for tuning in!

On the eighth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…

ZedSquared-Christmas2014-8

…a Christmas shaker card.

To make this card, I started in Silhouette Studio with a free Christmas tree cut file (it’s one of the free ones that comes with the software). I cut the tree outline from my kraft panel, and then the whole tree shape from a dark green cardstock using my Silhouette Portrait machine.

I used a piece of Lawn Fawn patterned paper from the Snow Day petite paper pack for the background and filled the shaker using gold and brown sequins. To finish off the shaker, I used two layers of foam tape, and a piece of clear acetate behind the kraft panel, and then adhered the green tree over top of the window. I like how the tree has a bit of a wonky stained glass look.

I stamped the Season’s Greetings sentiment from the SSS Be Joyful stamp set, and heat embossed with Ranger Super Fine gold embossing powder.

Thanks again for dropping by. Make sure to check out the first seven days of Christmas if you missed them.
