Good Morning! I’ve been real busy getting ready for Christmas, and most of my cards are done – I’ve even started sending some out in the mail! My last few cards are these cute shaker cards made with the Stampin’ Up! Frosted Gingerbread bundle. This bundle is on the retiring list, so if you want to duplicate these cards, pick it up while you can! You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
I adhered a panel of Gingerbread & Peppermint 6″ x 6″ designer series paper to the front of a Basic White Note Card – the size of the note card is perfect for the round shaker and die cut cookies from the Stampin’ Up! Frosted Gingerbread bundle. Using the second largest Layering Circle die, I positioned the circle and the cookie outline die on a DSP panel and ran it through my die cutting machine. I used the same circle die to cut out another DSP panel and window sheet.
I cut out a cookie from the Gingerbread & Peppermint 6″ x 6″ DSP and adhered it to the solid circle die cut, using the die cut circle with the cookie cutout as a guide. I cut out a scalloped circle from Real Red (or Old Olive) card stock using the second largest scalloped circle from the Layering Circles dies and adhere the circle with the cookie cutout to the scalloped circle. I lined up the cookie die on the cutout and ran it through my die cutting machine again to cut through the scalloped circle. I used Tear & Tape to adhere the die cut window sheet to the back of the scalloped circle.
I put foam adhesive strip around the second die cut Gingerbread & Peppermint DSP die cut circle with the ornament adhered to it and filled it with red, green and yellow sequins and acrylic Gingerbread & peppermint shapes. The adhesive strips are thicker than ordinary dimensionals, so they allow the items to move nicely when shaken. I removed the backing from the adhesive strips and adhered the layered window sheet with scalloped circle & DSP cut out on top, pressing on the adhesive strips to get a good seal. I adhered the shaker to the card front with liquid glue. I stamped part of the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Frosted Gingerbread photopolymer stamp set in Real Red on Basic White and cut it out with the second smallest scalloped rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly dies. I adhered it to the card front with dimensionals and finished it with a red ruffled bow.
For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Frosted Gingerbread stamp set in Real Red on a Basic White panel (note that I first stamped it on the note card directly, but messed it up, so I needed to fix that – easy!). I adhered it to a Real Red mat and then adhered it to the inside of the card.
Shaker Cards are so much fun and the Stampin’ Up! Frosted Gingerbread bundle is a great way to add sweetness to the fun with the festive holiday gingerbread and peppermint theme. I know this was kind of long, so let me know if you have any questions. These shakers would also be great for making tree ornaments or gift tags.
