Shake, Shake, Shake that Christmas Shaker card!!!

I'm warning you it's going to be an influx of Christmas cards, only 3 1/2 months until I need my ticker tape filled or overflowing. Since this is the week I have lots of time to make cards at the lake I'm going to take advantage of it. Again I used my favourite ~~ House Mouse Designs, I have a lot more Christmas stamps than I thought I had when I went searching for something to bring with me, The one I picked is Stocking full of Love featuring Amanda and Maxwell.

After I coloured the stocking (which btw looks great in blue too) I had no real plan on what I was going to do with it. I decided a 5 X 5 square card and because the die cut fancy square was too large for the cut image I decided to make a frame well once I had the frame cut it then became a shaker.

Red beads from Dollarama were perfect but fun to corral

Finished inside 

Jingle Belles rock Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer (predominately red)

Thanks for stopping by to check on my holiday stash, you will be seeing more soon

(ps: the last shaker card i made used those tiny micro beads and I SPILLED THEM... ack... still havin' flashbacks...) (& still finding tiny clear beads wedged into previously unnoticed gaps in the hardwood floor...) :0
