merry christmas shaker card with

I know it's summer but I'm having a lot of fun creating cards for the holidays! It's's fault really, with their Christmas in July celebration, LOL!

One of my favorite cards to make is a shaker card and one of my favorite ways to make a shaker window is with word dies...

I love the SBC Christmas Block Words die set so much! This is not the first time I've used the "merry" to make a shaker window. 

For this card made a wrapped shaker pocket with the pink from the Vacation paper pad inside. (You can see the technique in this past video.)

I die cut "merry" from Mixed Media paper first (the best for shaker windows because it is so thick) and saved the R middles. At the bottom right of "merry" I stamped "christmas". I used the Mini Circle Sentiments and masked part of the "merry christmas" one by placing low-tack tape over the "merry" and inking the stamp, then removing the tape and stamping on to the cardstock.

Then I die cut the "merry" again but this time from the red cardstock in the Sunshine paper pad.

I adhered the window panel to the shaker pocket and then inlaid the red "merry" and added the R middles too. A few faux splatters made with a pen and ta-da!

I definitely recommend stopping by to see more about their Christmas in July celebration!

And thanks for stopping by here too!
