Many Merry Stars Shaker Christmas Card

by Joanne James10. December 2014 10:00

It's Wednesday and this week's challenge over at Colour Me...! is one of my favourites - we have a beautiful striking colour combination for you to work with:

Night of Navy and Silver - such a great pairing for Christmas cards. I immediately knew what I wanted to create with this week's colour combination - a star shaker card. Here it is:

When I uploaded my Design Team card this week, I can see I wasn't the only one who thought stars were a good idea - you know what they say about great minds thinking alike though, right? I created a layered panel of Night of Navy and Brushed Silver on a Night of Navy base, then stamped the large snowflake and sentiment in Versamark and heat embossed in silver. I then stamped the small snowflake all over the front of my card in Versamark to give a subtle background pattern. Lastly, I created a star shaker frame using silver foil, a piece of window sheet and some dimensionals and after placing a mixture of Frosted Sequins in the centre, attached my frame to the background.

I love shaker cards and really don't make them often enough; after all, they are such fun. Feel free to leave a comment on today's card, before hopping over to check out the amazing cards by the rest of the Colour Me...! team:

We look forward to seeing your striking creations - what does this palette inspire you to create? 
Back tomorrow with another project; until then, happy stampin'!
