Hi All – I seem to be light on the posts lately as I design and create for craft fairs! Not only do I papercraft but I crochet as well and needless to say between all that, family and a full time job, little is left for anything else!
I created this card quite some time ago and forgot to post it but thankfully we are still well ahead of Christmas! The shaker part of this card is created just like any other shaker card. I have a written tutorial for shaker cards and a video tutorial as well that you can check out.
With this card I simply put a couple gingerbread men/ women inside the shaker section and added some white mica flakes that seem to have disappeared from view! LOL
I did stamp the large jar from the Jar of Love stamp set, using Jet Black Staz On ink on the window sheet. I also stamped a lid in Old Olive and die cut. What is a cookie jar without a gingerbread lady trying to jump out!
I wanted the focus to be the gingerbreads in the jar, so I kept the rest of the card very simple, with the sentiment stamped in Old Olive near the top and a simple strip of Candy Cane Lane Washi Tape along the bottom. The Whisper White card front sits on a Real Red base (5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored at 4 1/4″)
I think this stamp set and punch are wishing they had a break from me! Talk about being well loved 🙂
