Christmas Themed Shaker Card

Meighan, one of the Holly Christmas Elves chose a shaker card for the first challenge of 2013 at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenges.  It had been awhile since I had made a shaker card but it was fun to make.  I had this cute digi skier image from Paper Shelter that I used for my card.  To represent the snow I used some micro beads with white glitter mixed in to give some sparkle to the snow.  

I am looking forward to the upcoming challenges of 2013 and a chance to have my Christmas cards finished early this upcoming year.  If you need some inspiration for your card take a look at the beautiful cards on the rest of the design team.


I would like to enter my card in the following challenges

Crafty Hazelnut’s Challenge - No Santa

Party Time Tuesdays - Sparkle Glitter & Shine
Crafty Hazelnut's Challenge - Extra for January
