Candy Cane shaker

A quick post to show you the shaker card I made this week using 2 stamp sets from Catherine Pooler's SOA Holiday Magic collection. The candy cane border is from the Holiday Trimmings set by Winnie & Walter, and the sentiment stamp is part of the Holiday Flourishes set by The Ton.

I stamped the candy cane border onto a Soft stone card base (Papertrey Ink) using Ruby Red ink by Altenew. The star aperture for my shaker was die cut from another panel of Soft stone cardstock using a Docrafts Xcut nesting die. The sentiment was heat embossed in Liquid Platinum EP (Ranger). The sparkly red stars are from a large container of Christmas confetti that I bought from the local supermarket 1 or 2 years ago.

  1. What a wonderful shaker card, Marianne! Lots and lots of stars to go with those candy canes! Thanks for sharing with us at Merry Monday!

  2. A super shaker card Marianne, they used to be so popular and fun and I think there should be a campaign to bring them back into fashion again.

    I love them!
    The last one I made has to be revamped cause I used a piece of opaque, instead of clear vellum!
