Santa Baby shaker (Jingle Belles)

It's time for more inspiration for the current Jingle Belles challenge. This fortnight's prompt is Shake It Santa Baby, so we're inviting you all to create projects that focus on Santa, Christmas shakers, or a combination of both.

This week I just had to make a shaker card featuring this cute digital Santa babe (Winter Wryn) by Tiddly Inks. I coloured the image using coloured pencils (Spectrum Noir)  and created my shaker using stitched dies (SSS), some patterned paper from my favourite Christmas paper pad (Signature Christmas, MME), silver beads, sequins (Studio Calico and a few snowflakes from the SSS Snowdrift sequins), a sheet of acetate and a double layer of foam tape. I applied a few tiny dots of multi-medium matte using a piercing tool and dropped some of the pierced interiors of the sequins (that were included with my Studio Calico sequins) and a few beads onto those for a little added interest.

You still have a week to link up your card, so why don't you head over to the Jingle Belles blog for all the details.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
ABC Christmas - L for lyrics; inspired by a song (Shake it up baby - Twist and shout)
CCC - 27 Colour inspiration (see below for graphic)
The Glory of Christmas - 60 Snowman/woman
ATSM - 148 Holiday
Sweet Stamps - 225 Anything goes
Tuesday Throwdown - 248 Frame it
Sweet Stampin' - Something old (paper pad), something new (digital stamp)
CCAYR - Snowmen
