I have been busily working behind the scenes to design and make video tutorials for the Christmas Stamp Camp. I am pleased to premier the third card in the stack (third of 4 card designs). This is a shaker card made with die cuts and heat embossing. And, can you see those teeny tiny snow balls? There are so many inside this card 🙁 but I decided to leave them in so you all can learn from my adding too many, LOL! Can you have too much shaker inside a shaker card? My answer is yes, but it’s a matter of personal preference.
In keeping with not wanting to add too much bulk to a card that will be mailed, a shaker card works out well. And it’s kind of a wow factor when someone receives a shaker card. By adding too many snow balls, I obscured the words on my tree image. It is encouraging to shake them out of the way, like a magic message board, just to try and read the words. I chose simple colors for this card that would allow the images embossed in gold to really shine forth. This card measures 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″, standard US card size.
