Meowy Christmas Shaker Card
Hello, Friends! This whimsical little Meowy Christmas Shaker Card features Stamperia’s Make a Wish Paper Collection and some lovely goodies from Reneabouquets. I made it for our sweet next door neighbors who are cat parents. Their kitties are featured regularly on Instagram, so I thought they should be represented on their Christmas card this year.
This is a pretty basic 5″ x 7″ top fold card with a kraft cardstock base. Machine stitch around the maid paper panel. Add a decorative stitch on the border accent and you are half way home. Back a Reneabouquets Holly Berry Wreath with clear cardstock and foam tape, fill it with a mix of buttons, beads and sequins and that job is done, too. Die cut the cant directly from the paper pad using a circle die. Then center it and adhere on the back of the wreath.
Heat emboss the chipboard sentiment with Antique Gold Embossing Enamel. Then adhere it in the center of a really big Prima blossom. Tuck in a pretty organza bow, some Christmas Greenery and holly leaves. The vintage wooden candy cane came from a booth at a local flea market. I wish I had a hundred of these sweet embellishments but, alas, this was the very last one in my stash.
A Peek Inside
Finish the card with a designer paper panel and a pocket, of course!
Then tuck in a couple of chocolate snowmen and a little note card. There’s something joyous about these vibrant, non-traditional papers that speaks to my love of color, pattern and design. And above all, it was fun to make!
Right now I’m working on the next Button Farm Club Card Kit, which will be released next week. So if I’m a little bit absent, you will know it is because I am busy at my work desk, editing photos, making video tutorials and writing out directions for that project. I can’t wait to show you what I’m up to!
Friday is the date for the very last Heartfelt Creations Alumni Hop of 2020! And after that I will be doing a year-end round up of my favorite projects from 2020. This tough old year is waning, and a bright New Year is on the horizon. That is something to celebrate!
