Sweet shaker cards

For these two cards, I used supplies from my NBUS card kit from Love from Lizi. It arrived when I had already finished last year's Christmas cards, but I thought it would be perfect for this year's pink-inspired Christmas cards. I used the printed acetate sheets on both cards, as well as several of the ephemera elements. I did some soft ink blending in pink on my card panels.

On my polar bear card, I stamped a sentiment from the stamp set in the kit onto the acetate using an almost dry Stazon ink pad. Thank goodness I could restamp several times thanks to my MISTI. I combined some brandless clear iridescent sequins with a mix of pastel coloured sequins from my stash.

I forgot to stamp a sentiment on my second card before putting my shaker together, so I stamped it on a scrap of vellum, adhered it onto a piece of double-sided tape and fussy cut it. I used a different mix of sequins for my shaker element, including a few of the sequins that came with the kit.
