Heart of Christmas - Week 20

Hello and welcome to the Heart of Christmas from the Art with Heart Team.

I enjoyed making my first Frameless Shaker card last week. Tonight, I have two Christmas versions.

The Be Jolly stamp set was perfect for this fun shaker design. The Santa images are great to colour in, along with the other sweet images from the stamp set.

  The cellophane bags I've used are just ones I had in my craft stash. They are just the right size for my card base that measures 4 1/8" x 5 3/4" when folded in half.
I used Stampin' Blends to colour. I love the gorgeous, vibrant colours they give to the images. The stamped sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black and the star background, were cut out with Stitched Rectangle dies. The sentiment is mounted on dimensionals. Look at Santa and the little bird - aren't they cute! I added both of these with glue dots.

Inside, I added a pattern from the Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper to the Basic White thick card base. Then I layered the writing panel onto Real Red card stock die cut with Stitched Rectangle dies before adding the Christmas tree and fussy cut star.

On this card, I actually did add a frame.
I randomly stamped the star around the piece of Real Red card stock after cutting the centre out with another Stitched Rectangle die.

On the inside of this card I added another pattern of the Heartwarming Hugs DSP, the left over centre of the Real Red frame and the white writing panel. I also added a couple of gold foil stars.

The sequins are from the Sequins for Everything pack. The card on the left has just the red ones, the card on the right has a mix of the red, gold, silver and white. ***All of the images were cut with my Brother Scan-n-Cut with the exception of the red stars***. However, the images are quite easy to fussy cut with your paper snips as I've done it before. If you enjoy fussy cutting, this is a great set to get those paper snips snipping! 

See below for a full list of the Stampin' Up! products I used to create my two cards.
