This card uses a bunch of them and also items from the Simon Says Stamp December card kit. I'm playing with many challenges in mind.
First being Merry Monday 138, using the featured colors plus one of my choosing. I used the SSS Holiday ornaments die for a negative cut and make a shaker. The cute little ornament hanger is die cut from some silver paper (how am I not going to lose those little things?) that comes in the December kit and some of the sequins are from the kit. I added some doodlebug white sequins too. The 2 shades of blue paper are from the kit as well.
I used detail gold embossing powder on the Hero Arts JOY stamp. Another gift to myself that I have wanted FOREVER is the stitched rectangle dies. This is Lil Inkers. I wanted MFT but they were sold out and Lil Inkers is nice too.
Oh this card caused me such fits! I had to do things many times over to make it perfect for a special person. First I had trouble cutting the ornament in the rectangle straight, then I got glue on the acetate, then I burnt the paper when embossing, had to rip the top off because I didn't have enough sequins in it. It took about an hour and a half. The good news is I learned more about shaker card and how to do it right! Good grief, Charlie Brown.
