Hi friends! It's day FOUR of the brand new November Papertrey Ink Release! It's getting closer and closer to release day! Everything new will be available in the PTI store on Wednesday the 15th at 10pm EST. I'm back today with a pretty red and green traditional Christmas card made with the new Window Works Dies. I made a fun shaker card! These new window dies are absolutely beautiful. I've never seen anything like them! They are so intricate, with pretty edges and interesting stitching around the openings. Love.
I started with an A2 card base made from Kraft cardstock. Then I layered two sheets of pretty patterned papers from a new pad I just got. Then a layer of vivid red with the window cut out. Behind the window is Vintage Cream cardstock.
I used the Merry Christmas Dies from the Travelers series (see links) and die cut them from pretty gold! I used the same gold on the die cut accents at the top. I made my own sequin mixture of reds, greens and golds. Really classic colors for the holiday.
Once the card was finished, I used some enamel dots and sequins to add accents.
I always forget how much fun it is to make a shaker card! They have such an impact when you send one. Everyone loves to get a shaker card! I hope I've inspired you to make one! :-)
Thanks so much for joining along with me the past few days! I'll have one more post tomorrow and then it will be time for the release to go live! Have a wonderful day friends! XOXO
