Stamperia Sweet Winter Christmas Shaker Card

Stamperia Sweet Winter Shaker Card-Really Reasonable Ribbon-Kathy Clement-Reneabouquets-Kathy by Design

Stamperia Sweet Winter Christmas Shaker Card with Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello, Friends!  This Stamperia Sweet Winter Christmas Shaker Card sparkles and shines  just like the holiday!  Beautiful Really Reasonable Ribbon bows, heat-embossed Reneabouquets snowflakes, die cut glitter leaves, a mixed media shaker frame and frosty gems and sequins mimic the twinkling lights on the tree.   Shades of aqua and pink give it a wonderful vintage feel, too.  And that graceful skater takes me back to the fun back yard ice rinks of my youth.  I, however, was not graceful on skates!  I spent more time picking myself up off the ice than I did gliding over the surface. It was all wonderful fun whether I was gliding upright, or sliding on my bum!

Bluebird Gingham Bow

While I enjoy creating traditional red, green and gold Christmas projects, I also genuinely enjoy creating in a non-traditional color palette. Why? Using a non-traditional color palette means that I can leave this card out on display throughout the winter season, which I like.  It’s like getting more bang for your crafting buck!

I’m also a huge fan of plaid or gingham ribbons and metallic accents on my Christmas cards.  Really Reasonable Ribbon Bluebird Gingham pops against the softer pastel colors of this card.  And silver metallic string adds another layer of sparkle to the design.

A Peek Inside

Everyone knows you need a hot cuppa and a snack to revive yourself after skating out in the cold.  So I added a pocket inside the card and filled it with a seasonal tea bag, honey stick and chocolate treat.  After all, you just burned all those calories out on the ice!  You can afford to have a bit of chocolate indulgence, right?

No matter what color palette you are using on your Christmas projects, you can no doubt find the perfectly matched Really Reasonable Ribbon to dress it up.

Whether you are crafting, or baking, decorating or shopping, I hope you take a minute today to enjoy the beauty and wonder of this season.  It passes so quickly…be sure to make a memory or two!

    While not usually a fan of pink as a Christmas color, this stunning paper collection really drew me in…Stamperia’s Pink Christmas images are so detailed and beautiful!! So, yes, I’m creating some pink poinsettias, pulling out some pink bells and white snowflake charms. Blue has always been associated with winter…just seeing the color blue gives me cold shivers. Silver is a perfect winter accent. This is a beautiful card!

    What a lovely card! I do like non traditional colors on Christmas cards because as you said they can stay on display for the winter season. Thank you and have a great day!
