Winnie&Walter shaker card

Another post from me today, with yet another Christmas card. And a shaker card at that! Now, that's what I call a good start of the year LOL.

I started by cutting out a circle using one my new stitched circle dies (Simon Says Stamp) and then stamped the small moose from the Happy Christmas (Winnie&Walter) in Chocolate brown ink (PTI). For the background of the shaker, I applied Patel mint ink (Hero Arts) using a small dauber, making sure the colour was fading towards the top and also swiped the edges of the back panel with the same ink pad for a matching colour. On day 5 of the OCC CAS4 class, the teachers showed us even more useful and fun inking tricks.

For the shaker element, I heat embossed the Joy sentiment from The Big, the Bold and the Merry stamp set (Winnie&Walter) in gold (Ranger's) and filled up the shaker area with a mixture of sequins (Studio Calico and local bargain store) and some beads (local bargain store). Since I applied only one layer of foam tape, not all elements are shaking freely, but I don't mind, because I think it's fun if not all sequins and beads are towards the bottom, plus it's much easier to mail.
