I finally broke open the shaker frames from the Holiday Mini Catalog; they make shaker cards so easy!! I used this image from Gift Givers, that coordinates with punches perfectly. The frame is filled with just a little bit of Mica Flakes. You don't need much at all! I also added some Dazzling Diamonds to the little girls hat and the snow for some extra sparkle.
The image is stamped on Very Vanilla and colored with blender pens and reinkers. The card uses different patters from the Holly Berry Bouquet DSP paired with Wild Wasabi and Cherry Cobbler. The background with the four squares is embossed using the Snow Burst embossing folder for an inlaid embossed look. I added a little sentiment with the Tiny Tags set and punch.
I even made it in a second color scheme, using Letters the Santa DSP.
These cards are 4 1/2" square so they fit in a regular A2 envelope. Hope you can join us this week! Check out the other Design Team inspiration at Freshly Made Sketches!
