pine tree shaker cards + pretty pink posh blog hop day 2

I'm not trying to rush through fall but I am very excited about creating winter & holiday cards like these pine tree shaker cards using some of the latest & greatest Pretty Pink Posh! (By the way, you are just in time for day 2 of the PPP October release hop!)

Before I share my cards, there's more fun! There are 3 $25 gift certificates to Pretty Pink Posh up for grabs! Enter to win by leaving comments along the hop by 11:59pm PST of October 24th, 2022. The winners will be announced on the PPP blog.

Now let's talk shaker cards...
The new PPP Pine Tree dies make beautiful shaker windows! The shape of the trees feels so elegant that I wanted to keep the rest of the card clean and simple with just white cardstock, black stamped sentiments and faux black splatter with a pen.

The shaker backgrounds are pastel cardstock scraps (light green on the left and light blue on the right above) that I added a little Distress Oxide Salvaged Patina to with a blending brush. Then I topped them with some DIY glitter paste.
The DIY glitter paste is just Glossy Accents (or other clear glue) mixed with enough glitter to get the right consistency. For this I used ice white glitter and it gives everything a wintery frost. I love it!
Your next stop on the hop is Mindy Eggen's blog and I know she's going to make something fabulous!!! And here's the whole hop list if you need it...


Thanks so much for hopping with us! Hugs!!!
