Shaker card for Christmas

Hope you're all well and having a good week! Its another Wednesday...can you believe it?? I some how managed to end up at work at 7:30am this morning...ridiculously early even for me! I've also had Brownies and Guides this evening, and somehow I managed to get a card made too! Arlana has created another fab sketch this week for us over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday, pop over to the blog to see all the wonderful DT cards!




Here is mine....I've used a lot of silver card on this project and therefore it was quite difficult to photograph....so I've taken pictures from different angles!



I've opted for a shaker card this week, as I haven't made one in ages.







I've used blue and silver papers and cards for the background. Along with some lovely blue ribbon.


I filled my shaker Christmas present with metallic stars, seed beads and mini circles (from my hole punch!). I created the bow from more blue card and added a mini tag for my sentiment.

Right, I'm off for a bit of blog hopping before an early night! Thanks for stopping by my blog today and I hope to see you again soon.
