Pink Christmas shaker

And here it is: my last pink Christmas card (for now anyway). To finish my series, I wanted to create a shaker card, and I used some left-overs to create it.

I used a die cut panel from my UFO box, and while I'm writing up this post, I wonder why I did not use the shaker pouches matching the MFT die. Duh! On the other hand, I do like how the top lies flat, and this Sparkelicious glitter by Chloe (Ice maiden) is really small stuff and not bulky at all. I used the ink that was still on my blending tool to add a hint of colour behind my windows before sprinkling some of the glitter in each square and adhering my panel with foam-mounting tape to my card base. I had already heat-embossed (liquid platinum) and die cut my sentiment (Winnie and Walter) for one of my other cards (I had intended to use it on my wreath card but decided to use a heat embossed sentiment instead). I did some stamp surgery to stamp only the 'wishes' part of a sentiment stamp (Winnie and Walter) and stamped it in Black Jack ink (CP Designs).
