Hi Crafty Friends,
It's just a few days now until Christmas Day, for my card today I have a fun Christmas themed shaker/shaped card.
When I first saw the Hourglass collection of dies and stamps a few months ago on The Greetery's website, I knew I just had to ... if is so different and fun. So I ordered the two die sets that you need to make the hourglass plus a couple of coordinating die sets. This card uses the Hourglass and Hourglass Insert die sets. I have used it once already for a normal A2 sized shaker card, but I wanted to make a shaped card as well.
Rather than use either of the coordinating dies to decorate my card, I pulled out some stamps from Lawn Fawn which I wanted to use before Christmas ... the stamped images come from the Merry Mice; Christmas Dreams and Dandy Day stamp sets.
As you can see, I created a shaker card by die cutting the hourglass insert 5 times to create the well for the shaker elements. I was careful not to put too much inside the shaker part as I didn't want the image covered up at all.
On the inside of my card, I added another gold foiled sentiment from Pinkfresh Studio and a couple more images from Lawn Fawn.
