How to Create a Shabby Chic Christmas Shaker Frame & Reneabouquets Unboxing Video

Hello, Friends!  Would you like to learn how to create a shabby chic Christmas shaker frame?  Oh, good!  I was hoping  you would say yes to that question!  On Sunday, I received my Reneabouquets Brand Ambassador Christmas box and I thought it might be fun if we opened that up together.  With a tutorial and an unboxing video in our future, it’s going to be a very merry Make & Take Tuesday!

Prima Candy Cane Lane Christmas Shaker Card

Shaker cards are one of my favorite things to make, especially at Christmas time!  Those shiny sequins and bright bobbles echo the luster of Christmas lights.  I could not resist the urge to alter this Christmas De-Light-ful frame and turn it into a shaker.  It only takes a few minutes thanks to embossing ink, powder and Mica Spray, but the results are, well, delightful!

Prima Candy Cane Lane papers are a match made at the North Pole.  This shabby chic Christmas collection is a wonderful mix of traditional Christmas images and patterns with a soft, shabby chic color palette.  I’ll give you a peek at the paper collection in the unboxing video below.

Dress your altered frame up with some gorgeous mulberry flowers and printed Beautiful Board for a stunning finish.

A Peek Inside

More shabby chic details await inside this 5×7 top fold card base.

TIP: Upgrade your card to card folio status by simply adding a little flap page to the top of the card interior.  All you need to is to score a 1/2″ flap on one side of an image.  Then adhere the flap behind your panel of patterned paper.  Instant upgrade!

Create a sweet gift card holder and a sentiment panel behind the flap. How fun is that?

TIP: Repeat elements from the card front inside the card to tie everything together beautifully.  The darling deer on the cover of a tea wallet picks up on the sweet deer in the shaker frame image.

Tuck a tea bag and a honey stick inside, and now you have a lovely gift for your favorite tea drinker.  Cocoa packets, chocolate or instant coffee packets work, too.

    A visual feast Kathy let alone the want to touch all the elements and see the dimension. Tucking in those stamens is a wonderful way to use up that big bag full of them in my stash……and as usual you add the perfect collection of charms to go with the beautiful scene you created. Renea certainly knows how to colour and produce stunning focal points and embellishments. A beautiful folio indeed.

    Oh my…I loved the Reneabouquets unboxing; so much beauty in a plain cardboard box. Thanks for the tutorial on how to emboss on her beautiful board. The card is awe-inspiring. Here’s to my two favorite people – you and Renea.

    Thank you very much Kathy for sharing your creative card. The Prima design papers are beautiful and the folio pocket with treats makes the card extra special. You have inspired me to make these and I know the recipients will appreciate the added treats inside. Have a lovely day❤️.
