I saw a shaker circle in the sketch and couldn't shake it (get it! 😁) so that's the direction I took. I'm definitely into Christmas card mode now, helped in no small part by all the fabulous releases out there!
I created my shaker window with Mama Elephant dies, including the box die and then went to work on my stamped elements. This dog from Happy Pawlidays is just adorable and after I colored and cut him out, I added Glossy Accents to the lights and a Snow Marker to the fur around his hat. BUT, I forgot to shake it before using it so it came out all thin and didn't fluff up properly. Doh!
The sentiments were gold embossed - the first one onto heat-resistant acetate and the second onto a strip of Poppy cardstock. The box and puppy are popped up on foam tape.
Thanks so much for visiting! The Design Team have some gorgeous cards to inspire you to play along so I hope you'll head on over and check them out.
I'm sneaking in under the wire to add this to the gallery at Just Add Ink who have Just Add Two challenge - I've used colouring and sequins. I'm also playing along at Addicted to Stamps and More in their CAS challenge.
