Let it Snow Christmas Shaker Card Folio with Spellbinders All Is Calm Word Frame

Hello, Friends!  I think you are going to love this Let it Snow Christmas Shaker Card Folio.  It’s perfect for gift giving, quick and easy to make, and pretty enough to use as part of your holiday décor.   Pretty papers from Prima’s Christmas in the Country provide the backdrop for a festive shaker element made with Spellbinders Amazing Paper Grace All is Calm Word Frame.

Here’s a close up of the shaker element.  I love the way the sparkly sequins shimmer behind the lattice work frame.  It’s just like looking at Christmas lights through a wintry window!  This die set comes with two different sentiments.  I die cut the Let it Snow sentiment from red metallic paper and regular cardstock.  If you offset the sentiments slightly when you adhere them together, it creates a bit of a drop shadow effect.

Suspend some cute Christmas Charms from the spine.

A Peek Inside

I love to make projects that are part card, part mini album, and part gift!  Create a little waterfall mechanism on the left to store photos of the season.

How about a Christmas Tea Party in a Box?  You can fill yours with little treats and treasures that will bring joy to the recipient.

Use your scraps to dress up individually wrapped Ghiradelli Chocolates, honey dipper, cookies and honey packets.  And you are never too grown up for a peppermint stick!  The vellum envelope holds a holiday tea bag and a post card to write your personal greeting.

Decorate the flap pages, or leave room to add photos.

Maybe I’ll try to work up a Throwback Thursday tutorial so you can learn how to build the base.  Then you can decorate it up with your own favorite papers.  Would you like that?

You can find a linked supply list below this post.

Thanks for stopping by!

    Your folio puts me in the Christmas spirit, Kathy. The lattice shaker element adds such a lovely touch to the cover design. You’ve inspired me to try something like this for some holiday gifts…tea, hot chocolate, cider–the beverage of choice for each one. I especially like the waterfall element for gathering holiday memories. tfs-stay well. Hugs.

    You are the queen of folio’s and you have surprises at every turn of the page. Beautiful Kathy, simply beautiful.

    I live for your next tutorial, so yes please, if you get the time.
    I adore that when your embellishments seem complete, you find one more spot to fit yet another adornment. But it never appears crowded or overdone. That, Kathy, is a well-honed talent.

    This folio embodies Christmas with all the joy we expect to see! Ginny, of Polly’s Paper Studio uses this poinsettia die year round on lots of cards. It continues to amaze me that 2 paper artists can use the same dies, yet the flowers look completely different…wonderful to see!! YES! Strong vote for a process video on this folio! I agree with Dana…there is always something new to learn!
