Graphic 45 Warm Wishes Christmas Time Clock Shaker Card with Amazing Paper Grace DOM

Hello, Friends!  Today I have a festive Graphic 45 Winter Wishes Christmas Time Clock Shaker Card to share with you.  Our cute little alarm clock is made with the Spellbinders Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month for November 2022.

This vintage style alarm clock is one of Becca Feeken’s signature Pop Up Vignette Dies. But I opted to turn it into a shaker card frame.  Red and Gold foil papers, sequins, beads, and pearls add holiday sparkle and shine to my Christmas Time Clock.

Dress up your Christmas Time Clock with some beautiful Reneabouquets Velvet Poinsettias and trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

A Peek Inside

Don’t  you just love it when a card doubles as a folio?  That’s why I added this 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ pull out folio to the top half of my card interior.  This is so easy to do, but adds that “extra special” element to your card.

  • First, cut one 8 1/2″ x 11″ panel of black cardstock in half at 4 1/4″.
  • Next, overlap the 4 1/4″ ends about 1/2″ and adhere to form one long paper panel.
  • Now, score every 5 1/2″ down the long side to this panel. You will have a slightly shorter panel on the end.  This will be the front of your pull out folio.
  • Then, accordion fold your scored panels so that the short panel lands on the top.
  • Next, adhere ribbon to the back side of the folio with Scor-Tape.
  • Now adhere the folio to the top half of your 6″ x 6″ card base.
  • Line the front card panel with  4″ x 5″ panels of patterned paper.  Then line the remaining panels with 4″ x 5 1/4″ rectangles of patterned paper.
  • Finally, fold and secure with a bow.

If you add a pocket to the bottom half of your card, you can tuck in a little tea sachet, honey stick, mini candy cane and a decorative sentiment panel.  The panel is covered with white cardstock on the back.  Now your card is a folio and a gift!

These card folios make great Christmas presents for friends and family.  Add photos of your tree, your decorated home, pets or family to create a unique and personal gift.

    You have once again found another unique way of using Becca’s dies! A lovely, colorful and extremely charming folio, Kathy. This paper is beautiful; embellishments perfection; and the layout is inspiring. All this coupled with your style makes for a remarkable project indeed. That heart charm with the clock is sooooo adorable and the icing on the cake for me. I cannot wait to get my Christmas Time Clock die set.

    Goodness me Kathy there is so much detail to discover with your design. This really is an ‘outside the square’ use of the clock die, adaptation is the key and you have nailed it.

    So full of charming ideas…love that clock! Once again I saw something that I can use in an album I’ve finished…almost..have one page that has had me stumped, didn’t want to make a water fall, but your pull out page with several pieces for photos will work just fine! Always pays to watch your videos! Happy Fall and Thanksgiving coming up!
