 Hello there!  Wishing you a peaceful holiday season!  I made this into a shaker card.  I must say I'm not very good at shakers.  I seem to never get the right amount of sequins and bits in them.  This one is a bit too full.  Oops!  It still looks pretty though.

Simon Says Stamp - Angelic die
Unity Stamp Co - Scallop Rectangle die
Pretty Pink Posh - border die 
Pink shimmer cardstock
Scrap Diva Designs - Peace die
1/2 " foam tape
Buttons Galore and More sequins and bits

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day!

Let It Snow!


This card came together rather quickly.  I ink blended a background.  Run it through my Vagabond with a cover plate die.  Some of the snowflakes didn't pop out so I thought it looked rather random and I liked it.  And then I just cut the sentiment out and popped it on top.  I used holographic foil cardstock behind the inky background, so that's why you see a rainbow effect.  It's hard to photograph but it looks cool in real life.  


Distress Oxide - Iced Spruce
Tim Holtz - Artic cover die
holographic cardstock
Tim Holtz - Festive Words die
