Here it is the day before Christmas and I am still creating Christmas cards. This is actually a shaker card that I made for my hubby, Scott. I hope he doesn't mind me sharing this card before he even sees it. I was planning on making a very simple card since I have soooo much to do today but decided that a cardinal makes the perfect shaker card. (Scott loves watching the birds in the winter and so do I. This stamp was just begging to be inked up.) Anyone who has done a shaker card knows that shakers are not easy cards to make but I really love how it turned out and hope Scott does too.

As you can see from the photo, there are tons of gold baubles on this card (small, medium and large). I think the gold balls make it look more festive. It is hard to see from the picture, but the red is all glitter paper. I sewed the car with metallic gold. This card has a lot of shimmer!!

Card materials:

paper: Scarlet Letter from Basic Grey, Black Bazill (glossy), red glitter paper from K&Co.

Stamps:Cardinal Christmas

Ink: Copic markers and black ink

Acessories: small, medium and large baubles, red and gold ric rac type trim, metallic gold thread, acetate, mounting tape, 8mm clear beads, Swiss Dot Cuttlebug Folder, and nestabilities

If you are interested in making a shaker card and have not made one, Splitcoaststampers does have a step by step tutorial.

I hope you enjoyed my cardinal. I hope to share another shaker card, I made, with you (that is not Christmas) later today.
