Christmas card a week #11

 
 Hi All, week 11 is here and I have a mini "Shaker" card to show you this time for the challenge at My Craft Spot using another one of the stamps from My Craft Spot  Merry Christmas set.   I made the shaker on this card with a layer of gold Stickles first then 2 more layers of Stampin Up Crystal Effects, I dried between layers and when the top layer was dry yet still tacky I added some 2mm crystal gems from PizzazAPlenty to shake around and then put a piece of clear plastic on top.    I love the way the new  Perfect Layers Mini Tools and Perfect Cutting Mat made making this card so easy too, especially when making the frame for the Believe, the smaller size really helps!   The Santa image is from Free Vintage Digital Stamps  and the paper is also free from  The Coffee Shop blog.  Feels so good to have 11 cards in my Christmas card stash already, feel free to join the fun and get a head start on yours too.  That's it, thanks for stopping by.  ~Diane
