A Christmas Shaker Deer

 It's Saturday and time for my post for
Just Us Girls and for her first post 
Elizabeth has chosen
 Shakers for our Trend Week.

We all have cards that we tend to only do
on rare occasions and shaker cards are one of mine
but a challenge is good to get your creative juices
working in a different direction.
Thanks Elizabeth for doing just that.
I do love the ARTplorations Deer Die and 
thought he would be a good character here.
I adhered some tartan paper to my white card base.
Added acetate behind the white card front
and tan paper for the deer,
then laid out my STAMPlorations Shaker Blends
with other bits that seem to have disappeared
 adding mounting tape to seal. After adhering that 
I found I didn't have enough sequins but
luckily I managed to pull the bottom apart and
add more. Off course I had to add splatters,
 a few more sequins and finish with an eye
for my deer and sentiment from
Happy Little Stampers Christmas Joy.

Pop over and see how our September Guest Loll
and the Team had fun with and hopefully
you get to add yours to our Gallery.
Thanks for dropping in

The deer makes an unusual shaker Ina and I love the colours you’ve chosen. I haven’t made a shaker for many years so who knows, maybe this is the inspiration I needed!! Vicky x

Love the tartan, of course! Colors are beautifully coordinated with it too! Great idea to use the deer die for the shaker. Very unique Christmas card, Ina.

Fabulous shaker, amazing and great design. xx

That must have been difficult getting the foam around the deer, Ina, but so worth it. He's wonderful and I love the added sequins to the outside like they're spilling over.

Lisa Kind said...

I love that die. And it was a perfect choice for a shaker! Very pretty holiday card!

Sue VanDeVusse said...

So cool that you made the deer head into a shaker! I love the tartan background peeking around the edge and the perfect choice of shaker bits!
