A Blue Christmas

It's November, the stores have their holiday decorations up and although it seems to be rushing things a bit, here's a holiday card for Card Patterns Sketch 39:

This card is a simple shaker card.
This is super simple to make. Just cut a hole, then cover it with acetate. To make the space for shaker pieces, cut a hole in a piece of foamboard, put in the "shaklings" and back it with the stamped cardstock. Easy as pie and a real hit with little guys! I used the Christmas Critters set for stamps, a great set made by Cornish Heritage Farms.Although most of the snowflakes are loose in the shaker, I did use glue dots to attach three of them so they appear higher in the window.

If you haven't tried a shaker card, give it a shot. Easy and fun for kids! 


  1. What a great idea! I bought some pouches but haven't made a shaker yet. This is just adorable- must try!

  2. What a cute shaker card! I love all the snowflakes! I was in a craft store yesterday & all the Thanksgiving stuff is already discounted 75% - sort of takes the fun out of the holidays when they rush it so quickly as for me, I want to enjoy this time of year as long as I can :)
