Reindeer Shaker Card

Hi there crafter's

Today I am sharing with you a shaker card
that I made last week. 
I used the reindeer and evergreen tree 
from Jayne Nestorenko's 
latest collection of stamps.

With them being an obvious choice for Christmas,
I thought a shaker card was a must.
So I first embossed some dark green card
and inked over the raised parts with a lighter green
to bring out the design.
I then stamped, coloured and cut out the evergreen tree
 and medium sized reindeer and using 3D glue gel, 
stuck them in place.

Then using a Glitter Girls embossing board I created
this shaped card, which was quite easy to turn into 
a shaker style card.
On the raised dots I placed some gold
coloured cosmic glue to create faux pearls and 
card candi for the corners.
I aimed for part traditional and 
part contempary at the same time.

Does it work? 
Well i,ll leave that for you to decide .

Here are a couple more cards I have made 
using the same new collection of stamps.

This card uses the same reindeer but this time I added
the silver birch trees, but turned them blue!!

This one again uses blues,
 it must have been my colour of the day.

Here I have used the evergreen tree
and glittered the snow covered boughs in white glitter.
Creating my favourite easel style of card.
Sorry but I can,t resist!!

Hope you like the cards and if you would like to 
see a lot more, don,t forget to pop over to Jayne's
website or facebook page.

More cards in the next day or so.

until then
